Camp Strong4Life Volunteer Information

From Sunday, June 9, through Friday, June 14, campers will learn about the Strong4Life healthy habits and enjoy traditional overnight camp experiences, such as archery, rock climbing, swimming, sleeping in a group cabin and more! It’s where campers feel an instant sense of belonging and discover their own strengths.

Camp Strong4Life takes place at Camp Twin Lakes Rutledge West Campus in Rutledge, Georgia. The camp features 20 camper cabins, a lakeside amphitheater, fishing and boating dock, a state-of-the-art swimming pool with a waterslide, and 120 acres of farmland for gardening and farm education.

Camp Twin Lakes hosts a network of camps providing life-changing programs to children with serious illnesses, disabilities and other challenges.

For kids 8 to 12 years old who are above a healthy weight (BMI greater than the 85th percentile), Camp Strong4Life provides a unique opportunity to help jump-start a healthier future through a traditional summer camp experience. As a volunteer you have the opportunity to inspire and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Our camp teaches kids and parents about the four Strong4Life healthy habits:

  • Eat smarter, drink water
  • Screens away, go play
  • Get rest to be your best
  • Emotions are real, express how you feel

The team works our Strong4Life healthy habit sessions into the camp experience and helps your child build skills and boost confidence. Your child will have lots of opportunities to try new things, including:

  • Cooking challenges and nutrition demonstrations
  • Creative ways to build resilience
  • A ‘Be Active Day’ full of fun games

Our program would not be possible without the support and talent of our volunteers! We depend on volunteers to help campers develop friendships, try new things and discover their potential.

You’ll work with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta wellness experts to give back to the community, enhance your skills, learn more about the field of healthcare and gain resume-worthy experience.
