Glisson Closed To Public During Summer Camp (May 15 to July 30th): Cane Creek Falls and Glisson are entirely closed to the public while summer camp is in session. For 2017, Glisson will be closed to the public from May 15th - July 30th. 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 (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).

"It was great! It was my first year, and I was very happy that I got to do some amazing activities. I was a little scared on the high elements course, but I did it (and I am glad I did)!"
