NOTE:  The info on this page has not yet been updated for Summer 2022.

There are multiple ways for you to communicate with your camper during his or her time at Glisson.

Mail

Mail is very important to your camper. Write soon, often and cheerfully! For 2021, we will not be receiving or delivering care packages (letters only, please). See below for instructions on how to use our new Care Package Add-On feature from our Camp Store.

We’ll encourage your camper to write home at least once. Please send addressed, stamped envelopes and stationery with your campers.

You can either prepare mail ahead of time and place it in daily bins (e.g. “Deliver Tuesday”) or send mail to:

Camper’s Name & Cabin
Camper’s Counselor
c/o Glisson Camp & Retreat Center
690 Camp Glisson Road
Dahlonega, GA 30533

Email

Once camp starts, you may send one-way email to your camper through our Bunk1 service. Login info and other details is emailed directly to registered parents.

Emails will be printed out each morning and delivered with postal mail. Your camper will not have access to a computer and cannot respond to email.

Photos

Bunk1 also provides a service for viewing and downloading pictures. Login info and other details is emailed directly to registered parents.

Each day of camp, our photographers take pictures and post them online for viewing and downloading the next day. We strive to get at least one photo of every camper during the week.

NO PACKAGE DELIVERY

Due to our support staff’s increased role in the sanitation of camp, we will not be accepting packages of any kind this summer. While we know many camper’s look forward to receiving a mid-week care package, we appreciate your understanding as we shift the time typically spent on sorting and delivering care packages each day to time spent mitigating potential spread of Covid-19 within camp.

NEW CARE PACKAGE ADD-ON

In lieu of our typical care package delivery options, we have added an option to purchase a care package through our registration system. You can purchase up to 2 care packages for delivery during your camper’s session. Each care package will contain a Powerade, chips, and cookie. The cost for each package is $3.

STEPS TO ADD A CARE PACKAGE

  • 1) Log in to your account to find your camper’s registration listing.
  • 2) Click “Care Package Add-On (Optional)” listed below this listing, and then click “EDIT”.
  • 3) Select either the “1 Care Package” option or the “2 Care Packages” option, click “ADD”, and then click “SAVE” (note that if you select more than one care package option, we will only honor one selection and will reverse the charges on your account for the unfulfilled order).
  • 4) Select a saved payment method or key in a new payment method and click the “PAY” button at the bottom of the page.
