Camp Twin Lakes is a network of camps providing life-changing camp experiences to thousands of children with serious illnesses, disabilities and challenges each year. We collaborate with over 40 different special needs organizations to create customized programs that teach our campers to overcome obstacles and grow in their confidence and capabilities. Camp Twin Lakes is thrilled to provide programs at various state-of-the-art facilities throughout the state of Georgia, including overnight camps in Rutledge and Winder, day camps in Atlanta, children’s hospitals, and more.
Prior to Camp Twin Lakes’ opening in 1993, special needs groups in Georgia lacked adequate facilities to hold their camping programs. Today, Camp Twin Lakes partners with these organizations to provide customized programs, medical care and services for each group of campers.
The children can take part in the many joys of camp-swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, campfires and sleeping under the stars-without compromising their medical care. While at Camp Twin Lakes, they gain self-esteem, self-awareness and independence by participating in recreational, therapeutic and educational programs in a supportive, nurturing, fully-accessible environment.
