Crosstown Kids’ Retreat

PrintHamilton Mill UMC and The North Georgia Conference Children’s Ministry Connection is pleased to offer a special retreat for children in 3rd – 5th grades at Glisson Camp. We will be housed in the Village cabins, eat family style in the new dining hall, worship together led by United Methodist pastors, enjoy the unique activities available at Glisson, and meet, pray and play with children and adults from other congregations across the conference.
Nestled in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains on 400 acres, Glisson Camp and
Retreat Center in Dahlonega, Ga, has provided children, youth, and adults 90 years of outdoor living, playing and worship experiences.
Children across North Georgia will want to be part of this retreat weekend where their faith can grow as they build lasting connections with others. Register early – space is limited.

 

Sign your 3rd – 5th grader up for a fun weekend full of faith forming experiences created specifically for them!
