When Summer Camp In Session, Glisson Closed To Public
Cane Creek Falls and Glisson are entirely closed to the public while summer camp is in session. For 2016, Glisson will be closed to the public from May 16th through July 31st. During the summer, Cane Creek Falls serves as a stunning and constant reminder of God's beautiful Creation to our campers, staff, and -- on Fridays -- camper parents and family members.  During the retreat season (mid-August to mid-May), visitors are welcome to check-in at the Welcome Center during business hours (8:30-5:00, Mon-Fri), then walk down to view the falls. Just to be sure your visit will be a smooth one, please call during business hours prior to coming by to make sure access will be open (706-864-6181).
