  • Trout Unlimited Needs Your Help

    Camp Glisson in Dahlonega has been very good to our Gold Rush Chapter over the
    years. They have allowed us to use their facilities for our meetings at no cost
    to the Chapter. Now, it is time for us to pay them back.

    Gold Rush TU is excited to have the opportunity to partner with Camp Glisson to
    build a Bath House for their Middle School Campers.

    Bath House:

    The Bath House will be a 24' x 35' structure within the Frontier Camp. The Bath
    House will support the current 7th to 9th Grades Boy's and Girl's Cabins within
    the Camp at their Outpost property. Each cabin holds up to 8 campers and 2

    The main foundation posts are already in place. We will build out the structure
    including the flooring, walls, siding and roof. We will work in conjunction with
    a plumber and will be overseen by David Stubblefield, the Camp Facility Services
    Director (who is joining our Chapter!).


    Camp Glisson will provide necessary tools for us to use, but if you have any of
    the following listed below, please bring them, but make sure they are well
    marked with your name.

    1) Nail Gun
    2) Level
    3) Compressor
    4) 18v drill
    5) Circular saw
    6) Measuring tape

    You will need to bring your own gloves and safety glasses if you have them.


    Our initial work effort is scheduled for Friday December 8th and Saturday,
    December 9th. We will meet at the Welcome Center, at the camp entrance at 8:30

    We have tentatively scheduled January 19th and 20th, as additional workdays,
    weather permitting.

    You do not have to commit to every date. If you can make only one day, that will
    make a difference!

    Camp Glisson will provide lunch.

    Let's have a lot of volunteers for this project and show Camp Glisson how much
    we appreciate their support and the use of their facilities for our meetings!
    Even if you have no experience with construction or wood working, we need your
    help. There are construction materials to be carried, lunch setups to be done,
    and a myriad of other activities that will need your assistance. If you never
    sign up for another series of work days, this is the one thing that will have a
    lasting impact.
