Family Warrior Weekends & kids summer camp
Camp Twin Lakes' Family Warrior Weekend (FWW) is a weekend retreat for active and retired service members and their immediate family members of all ages who have been affected in any way by combat service and the Global War on Terror. Priority is given to families who experienced OIF/OEF/OND, Post Traumatic Stress, MST, Traumatic Brain Injury and ALL women veterans. These camps are held at beautiful Will-A-Way in Winder, GA.
Our week-long kids summer camp is in partnership with Camp Corral for kids of a wounded, ill, injured or fallen parent in the military. Applications open Saturday, January 26, 2021 on www.campcorral.org. Campers must be 8-15 years old to apply. Campers 16-17 years old can apply as a Leader in Training (LIT) by contacting Kate Lipton: Kate@camptwinlakes.org.
Our goal is to assist and educate participants and to support them physically, mentally, and emotionally. These camps offer service members, veterans and their families a fully-accessible camp experience and new skills to take home once they leave camp. As a family, our campers have the opportunity to reconnect and rebuild their foundation in a relaxing and supportive environment.
Participants enjoy camp programming individually and as a family with recreational activities like archery, boating, swimming, climbing wall and other challenge activities, and so much more. We also offer workshops and various skill-based programs in addition to outside resources to utilize once participants leave camp.
Family Warrior Weekends in 2021
Families of Fallen Soldiers Weekend 2021
If you're interested in registering for Family Warrior Weekend, kids summer camp, or Families of Fallen Soldiers, please click here. Please fill out all the questions as completely as possible. It is imperative that we know as much information about your family as possible so that we can safely serve you at the retreat. There is a refundable $50 per family registration fee (if your family attends more than a few times, we ask that you contribute to assist those families coming for the first time.) If you are in need, financial assistance is available. Please know that we want as many families as possible to participate in the FWW program. We are limiting each family to attend two weekend retreats a year, with priority going to new families. If you're interested in attending more than one of the weekend retreats, we'll add your family to our waiting list and will notify you if there is space to accommodate you.
Volunteer with Family Warrior Weekend or kids summer camp!
PLEASE NOTE: Our volunteer roles have changed due to COVID-19 to limit contact with families. We are only able to accept a few volunteers for each camp and require volunteers to screen for COVID-19 symptoms two weeks prior and during camp. Our applications for summer camp 2021 are not live yet, but we will update this page once they are available.
If you're interested in volunteering, please see below for our current opportunities. Volunteers must be at least 18 years-old. Once the application is complete, a staff member will follow up with you via email with waivers and consent forms. You must also consent to and pass a background check. Volunteer orientation will be held prior to the start of camp. Please note, completing an application does not guarantee your acceptance as a volunteer.
