Small Groups, Big Adventure
Safe opportunities for kids to explore God’s creation are becoming less common. Outpost facilitates teamwork and learning new outdoor adventure skills in beginner-friendly ways that help campers grow in faith, collaboration, and self-confidence.
Living out the same core values practiced at Glisson since 1925, Outpost’s unique setting gives campers a chance to step just outside of their comfort zone and realize they’re capable of more than they thought – and no prior outdoor experience is required.
“Outpost gave me skills that have helped me grow into a better person
and will continue to help me throughout the rest of my life.”
– Outpost Camper
Upon arrival, counselors welcome each camper into their Living Group — 2 counselors and 8 to 12 campers who experience the week together as a Christian community. All campers begin their week by hiking together to the Outpost site on the other side of Falls Mountain from Village camp. At this site campers sleep in covered, open-air shelters, participate in counselor/camper-led devotions, learn useful wilderness skills, and prepare hot, tasty meals together in the outdoor kitchen.
