Summer 2019 Registration Open Dates:
* Nov 1, 2018 for members of United Methodist churches
* Dec 1, 2018 for everyone
In the meantime, feel free to browse our 2018 schedule and info below as a reference.Summer 2018 Schedule (PDF)
You will need to have this information to complete registration:
– The date of your camper’s last tetanus booster
– The name and phone number of your camper’s doctor and dentist
– Your camper’s health insurance or Medicaid information
If registering a returning camper from summer 2017, your camper’s health history is complete. You should update changes in health, medicines and doctor’s contact info. You will be required to verify accuracy of the information with a drop down “yes” and your name.
If your child needs special medical attention, contact the camp before registering to confirm that we can provide that care. There are limitations to the medical care we can provide. Registered campers whose needs we cannot meet will be notified and their money refunded.
Sparrowwood uses a separate custom registration process; download paper forms on the Sparrowwood page.
CABINMATE REQUEST (optional)
The following conditions must be met to honor any cabinmate request:
– Both campers must be registered for the same camp program and age group during the same week
– Both campers must request each other (groups of three or more cannot request each other).
If a “triangle” is requested, none of the campers’ requests will be honored.
CHURCH NAME & DISTRICT (if applicable)
During registration, you will see a drop-down list of all North Georgia United Methodist churches listed by the district in which they are located. Find out your church’s district here: Church Locator. If you are not a member of a United Methodist Church, skip this step.

AUTOMATIC PAYMENT & CAMP STORE
AUTOMATIC PAYMENT PLANS
You may choose an automatic payment plan during online registration. Your credit card will be charged over an equal time period until the final payment is due on May 1st.
CAMP STORE ACCOUNTS
You can deposit money into a store account for your camper during online registration. You may also choose to deposit money anytime after registration until your camper comes to camp. If you mail a check for a store account prior to the camp week, please include your camper’s name and camp session. Campers may not use cash in the camp store.
POLICIES & RELEASES
After registering, campers may transfer to a different camp session for a $25 fee up until 30 days prior to the opening day of their initial camp session. No transfers may be made within 30 days of the beginning of a session.
CANCELLATION REFUND POLICY
– Notice of cancellation must be received by our Registrar in writing (email or postal mail).
– For cancellation more than 30 days before camp, refund will be the amount paid minus the deposit.
– There will be no refund for cancellation within 30 days of the camp session.
– If camp fees are not paid by May 1st, your registration will be canceled.
– Full refunds will only be given when we receive a signed doctor’s note within 3 days of the cancellation.
– No refund will be made for any reason after the start of the camp.
LATE ARRIVAL / EARLY DEPARTURE
Neither late arrivals nor early departures are allowed. Removing a camper from his or her living group early or adding a camper after the week has begun is disruptive to the whole group. If you know that your camper cannot attend the entire week, please select a different camp week.
HEALTH HISTORY, TRANSPORTATION, USE OF LIKENESS RELEASE
I attest that the health history information I will complete online during the registration process is current, correct and accurately reflects the health status of the camper to whom it pertains. The camper described has permission to participate in all camp activities except as noted by me and/or an examining physician. I give permission to the physician selected by the camp to order x-rays, routine tests, and treatment related to the health of my child for both routine health care and in emergency situations. If I cannot be reached in an emergency, I give my permission to the physician to hospitalize, secure proper treatment for, and order injection, anesthesia, or surgery for this child. I understand the information on this form will be shared on a “need to know” basis with camp staff. I give permission to print or photocopy this form. In addition, the camp has permission to obtain a copy of my child’s health record from providers who treat my child and these providers may talk with the program’s staff about my child’s health status.
I give permission to the camp staff to transport my camper for emergency or programmatic purposes at the discretion of the Director. For good and valuable consideration, we hereby consent to and authorize the reproduction, publication, and use by North Georgia Camp & Retreat Ministries INC, Glisson Camp & Retreat Center LLC, and their successors and assigns for advertising, commercial, or any other purpose, of any photograph, picture video or likeness of my child or other family members.
You must read the entire registration waiver (the “2. SIGN” tab) and check the box saying you have read the waiver before you can proceed to the registration site.
