Camp Twin Lakes is a network of camps providing life-changing camp experiences to thousands of Georgia's children with serious illnesses, disabilities and other challenges each year. We collaborate with over 50 different organizations (our Camp Partners), each serving a different population, 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 locations throughout the state of Georgia, including camps in Rutledge, Winder, Warm Springs, children's hospitals, and more.
Prior to Camp Twin Lakes' opening in 1993, special needs groups in Georgia lacked adequate facilities to hold their camp programs. Today, Camp Twin Lakes partners with these organizations to provide high quality, fully-accessible recreational activities in a medically supportive environment. Camp programs are customized for each group of campers.
Since its opening, Camp Twin Lakes has welcomed more than 50,000 children and volunteers. Each year, thousands of campers and volunteers head to CTL-Rutledge and CTL- Will-A-Way for weeklong summer sessions and year-round weekend retreats.
As our Director of Camping Services Dan Mathews puts it, “CTL campers constantly comment on how powerful it is to feel normal, to be one of the group, and not to stand out because of their various illnesses or challenges. Kids build camaraderie and friendships that will last a lifetime, not to mention support systems that will see them through their hard times back at home, which often entail doctor’s appointments, hospital visits and ongoing treatments.”
A medical coordinator is on permanent staff and all camp programming is overseen by a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. CTL Program Staff are specially trained in adaptable and accessible programming. We collaborate with each Camp Partner to ensure every child's needs, medical or otherwise, are attended to.
A national model for camps serving special populations, Camp Twin Lakes is accredited by the American Camp Association.
We provide places and paths for children with serious illnesses and life challenges to experience the joys of childhood and grow in their confidence and capabilities.
Camp Twin Lakes will be a vital statewide network of closely aligned partners that are united in providing year-round camping and other transformative experiences that deeply impact our children and support their families throughout childhood.
