An Experiential Christian Community

To truly become something – an athlete, an artist, a mathematician – takes more than study; it takes practice. Village is an immersive experience of practicing Christian faith together in ways that translate to all aspects of everyday life. We put over 90 years of experience into creating an environment where every moment – whether in the creek or at the chapel, on the Alpine Tower or around the dinner table – is about forming faith and friendships.

Campers stay in cabins, eat in the dining hall, worship in the chapel, and play on the waterfront. What changes lives though is experiencing the entire week together with their small group where campers are accepted and loved for who they are and encouraged to live out their faith together in new ways that translate to their lives back home.

“Glisson is a place I can be myself and know that people
will accept me and love me.”

– Village Camper

“Our camper says he feels closer to God when he is at Glisson.
He says he takes that feeling home with him each summer.”

– Parent of Village Camper
