You can support the Glisson summer camp ministry this summer in a meaningful way by adopting a summer staff person. By doing so, you commit to:

  • pray for this person by name daily
  • send notes and cards of encouragement
  • send an occasional care package
  • if you like, even come to camp on a weekend to take your staff person out to dinner.  You can also partner with another "adopter" and take both of your staff members out to dinner together.
Summer Staff 2014
Pictured above is our 2014 summer staff.  Also check out our Staff Photos 1971-Present album on Facebook.

This summer we will have around 100 college-age students on staff (some of whom are working only a portion of the summer). You can adopt as many as you like, and can even talk to your church group or Sunday School class about adopting some staff members.

The goal of this program is to make our staff feel loved and appreciated for the work they do - and to show them the same love and care they exhibit for our summer campers. We are hoping to have 100% of this summer's staff adopted, so please consider joining in support of these inspirational young adults.

To adopt a counselor, contact Lacey Bauer or call (706) 864-6181. If you're interested in taking this to the next level, you can also Sponsor a Counselor, which involves a gift to the Glisson Annual Fund.  Visit our Opportunities to Give page to learn more. 



"Our camper says he feels closer to God when he is at Glisson. He says he takes that feeling home with him each summer."
