“Glisson joins with the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ and to nurture leadership by creating experiences in Creation and in Christian community that encourage transformation, growth, and renewal for all people.”
Since 1925, summer staff have worked to carry out this mission by providing life-changing summer programming for youth. Summer staff work hard, play hard, get dirty, sweat a lot, serve a lot, lead others and each other, participate, facilitate, cooperate, educate, inspire, and encourage for nine camp weeks each summer.
We’re looking for people who are willing to put others first…for competent and creative leaders…for team players who are willing to love and accept children and youth as they are, to appreciate procedures, to embrace small-group camping philosophy, and to serve with a selfless desire to share God’s love with everyone.
