The GICH campus is situated on approximately 200 acres in Suburban Bibb County.

We also partner with local schools to provide a site for high school and college cross country meets. GICH offers a low ropes course, climbing tower, and zip line under the supervision of a certified instructor. GICH recently revitalized the 92 existing pecan trees on campus in order to cultivate and harvest annual crops. Youth who are referred to GICH reside in one of five cottages located on the campus. Each cottage has been renovated within the last five years.
