Camp Glisson offers cost-saving 'First Camper' incentive


Since 1925, generations of youth have experienced the beauty of God’s creation and life-changing spiritual growth while attending Camp Glisson.

For thousands of United Methodist youth over the years, this slice of the North Georgia mountains represents holy ground.   

Creek hikes, kayaking, campfires, games, worship, swimming, climbing and play all combine to provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. Many North Georgia clergy and those in full-time Christian service have heard God's call to ministry in this place 

This year, Glisson is reaching out to churches the camp hasn't had a relationship with lately by launching the "First Camper" program.

Through "First Camper," Glisson is offering $350 to any United Methodist Church in the North Georgia Conference that hasn't had a Glisson camper since 2005. It may be used this summer toward camp for a single camper or may be divided among as many campers as register from a church. 

"The many Glisson Alumni who are now clergy in our annual conference know how effective the Christian summer camp experience is in developing disciples and enabling one’s discernment of God’s call," said Russell Davis, Director of Camp Glisson. "We want you to consider Glisson a partner with your church in making disciples."
