Camp Twin Lakes: Camps for Kids with Challenges

I'm sharing information about Camp Twin Lakes because you just might know a child with challenges that needs a special camp. 

Here's why it's awesome. Camp Twin Lakes provides life-changing experiences to thousands of children with serious illnesses, disabilities and other life challenges. There are three fully accessible and medically-supportive campsites that provide week-long camps and year-round retreats. They cooperate with 60 different nonprofit organizations and subsidize 80% of the direct camp costs ($800) for every camper served!

Just click on the camp calendar to see if there is a camp for that special child in your life. Listen to these awesome titles!

Camp Twin Lakes Calendar and Camp Descriptions

Sunday I took my son to camp Twitch and Shout for the third summer. Camp T&S is a place for kids with Tourette Syndrome, a neurological disorder which produces involuntary movements called tics. What a blessing this camp  has been to our family!

My hope is that this information will be helpful to a child in your life. Support for these camps and specifically Camp Twitch and Shout is always appreciated!
