The building was an exact replica of a Native American lodge from years earlier, and one of few like it built in the South for hundreds of years. Eustace estimates he was about 20 back then. The land is known as Turtle Island Preserve, a place where boys and their fathers can go to enrich their lives by learning skills to live off the land, appreciate nature, and enjoy genuine freedom.
Meaningful Purpose Since Eustace left his boyhood home in Gastonia, North Carolina, at age 17 to live in a teepee, he has accomplished some remarkable feats that have garnered worldwide attention. The Falling Creek Connection In addition to working on the bark lodge at Falling Creek, Eustace had a positive influence on the Indian Lore program, periodically sharing how the Cherokee people lived in the area hundreds of years earlier.
He worked with long-time staff member Jim Kurtts to locate and start the Indian Village up the creek holler from the Iroquois tribal area. Jim, a retired social worker, has served at Falling Creek for 45 years and oversaw the Indian Lore program much of that time.
Eustace worked side-by-side with Jim when they were teens at Camp Sequoyah. When Eustace built the lodge at Falling Creek he took tree bark, peeled it off in huge slabs, rolled it out flat, and covered a bent wooden frame with it.
Some campers helped, but mostly staff members. It was sort of like me teaching the staff, then the staff would later teach more with the campers. That was my passion at that time in life. As a camper and later as a staff member, I soaked up all camp could offer and infused it into my life vision.

Of course, those were big shoes to fill. When neither were chosen, the camp struggled for a decade without a firm succession plan and in it closed its gates, with many of its staff members heading to Falling Creek.
Seeing others do it, too. Being unashamed of our faith. Chief made it clear where he stood and that principles of camp came from where he stood, but he did not proselytize. A Camp of His Own Eustace has been wandering around at camps since he was in diapers. He had high standards.
He told me to do something with my life that would make the world a better place for my being here, and I took him seriously.The Education of Charlie Banks is a gripping emotional film.
Fred Durst truly delivered a heart breaking take on friendship and trust. I think Durst did so well on it because a lot of what we see in the film is mirrored in the real life struggles that Durst’s band Limp Bizkit went through over the last 8 years.
