Camp Twin Lakes provides year-round, fully-accessible, and intentionally designed camp programs that teach campers to overcome obstacles while creating shared experiences with other children who face similar challenges. After spending every other day of the year adapting to the world around them, for one week, camp adapts to them.
The magic happens at our camp sites in Rutledge and Winder, Georgia, and through Camp-To-Go programs at children’s hospitals and other locations throughout the state.
Before Camp Twin Lakes opened in 1993, special needs groups in Georgia lacked adequate facilities to support camp programs for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, and other life challenges. Camp Twin Lakes founder, Doug Hertz, saw this need and had the courage and the vision to create a solution. More than 25 years later, Camp Twin Lakes powers a vital network of over 60 closely aligned partner organizations.
We bring our proven expertise in therapeutic, adaptable programming, state-of-the-art camp sites, healthy and kid-friendly food services customized to each camper’s dietary needs, highly trained staff, and devoted volunteers.
Camp Partners bring expertise in each diagnosis or challenge and recruit campers, volunteer cabin counselors, and medical support staff. This collaboration ensures that Camp Twin Lakes and our Camp Partners share resources to maximize impact and best meet the needs of each camper.
