What is Camp To Belong?

The camp program is a six-day, five-night camp experience. Supervised by Camp To Belong – Georgia board members, Camp Twin Lakes staff and volunteer counselors. The campers' days are filled with fun and meaningful activities, giving siblings the opportunity to experience new things together, such as canoeing, swimming and wall climbing.

Each afternoon the children participate in our signature program activities, while nights are filled with activities for the entire camp, including motivational speakers, games, night swimming and of course campfires!

Sibling Scrapbook Each camper is provided a scrapbook, materials and printed photos of their week at camp allowing them to create a visual representation of their experiences and memories and use this take-home keepsake as a place to write messages to one another and personal reflections on the week.  For many, this scrapbook will contain the only pictures they have from their childhood.

Birthday Party One evening is dedicated to a camp-wide birthday party where sibling groups celebrate with individual family birthday cakes and gift exchanges. The party serves to make up for missed opportunities to celebrate important life occasions together. Siblings choose gifts for one another from donated and/or pre-purchased gifts, wrap them, and create birthday cards for their brother or sister.
