Our Beneficiary

Camp Twin Lakes provides year-round, fully-adaptive, and deeply impactful camp experiences to nearly 10,000 of Georgia’s children and young adults, helping each camper grow in their confidence and experience the joys of childhood. Our intentionally-designed programs help campers overcome obstacles as they learn new skills to more independently manage their challenges. As they make memories with their peers, the isolation they often feel vanishes in the comfort of new friendships forged by the strongest of bonds—the challenges they have in common.

The magic happens at our camp sites in Rutledge and Winder, Georgia, through Camp-To-Go programs at children’s hospitals throughout the state, and even online.

Every summer, Camp serves thousands of children from across the southeast during weeklong overnight camping programs. Each week Camp serves a different unique diagnosis or life challenge at our two medically-supported campuses in Winder and Rutledge, GA. This allows campers to instantly be a part of a community of other kids with similar challenges. At Camp, children with special healthcare needs and life challenges can participate in our fully-adaptive camp activities, such as zip lines, rock walls, and horseback riding, as well as our nature programming, which includes interactive nature exploration trails, a wheelchair accessible green treehouse, stargazing programs, and our 120-acre farm. Most of our summer camps serve kids ages 7-17 (ages vary per program).

The impact of Camp reaches beyond one week, beyond the simple joys of childhood, and beyond fond memories of summer camp. Our camping programs are intentionally designed to provide our campers with opportunities to learn new skills, develop a sense of community, and achieve personal growth. In a safe, supportive, and fun environment, campers can take risks and try new things, which lead to greater confidence and independence. As campers grow older, they are able to develop their leadership skills and learn how they can overcome and even use their unique challenges for the good in their own lives and in their communities.
