Glisson is a ministry of the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church that offers Summer Camp and year-round Retreat experiences in the forests surrounding Cane Creek Falls. Since 1925, this place has become holy ground as thousands have had their faith strengthened through God's presence here in creation and Christian community. We invite you to explore Glisson online and discover how we can serve you, your family, and your church in camp and retreat ministry. If you can't find something, check our FAQs or Contact Us.
