Twin Lakes Summer Camps have been voted as a yearly “Family Favorite” for the last 20 years! Twin Lakes is focused on providing an environment that is both safe and fun, while being intentionally grounded in Biblical teaching. For the past 47 years, Twin Lakes has shown the love of Christ to campers from a variety of backgrounds. During their session, each camper participates in each of our exciting activities – Horseback riding, Wild Wilderness Adventure, Games, Challenge Course, Riflery/Archery, Rock Climbing, Waterfront, Leather crafts and Kayaking. Biblical narratives serve as the theme each week, and come to life during assembly times as the whole camp experiences a Bible adventure. The loving, highly qualified staff are carefully selected and genuinely enjoy developing relationships with each child and seeking to help him/her make the most of their week at camp.
