An Inside Look at Camp Twin Lakes, in Rutledge, GA, by Tour Guide Callie


Note:  I know this is an ART blog, but I just had to share a post about a cool camp in Rutledge, GA.  One thing for sure, there is hidden ART everywhere!
 
 
Here is the OFFICIAL Welcome from my daughter, Callie Ray
 

 
Like this cool Mosaic Sign-ART!

According to Callie, some SCAD students did these two totem poles

 
The letters on each sign are actually
ceramic and are made by the campers-ART
 
 
The tower is for all the climbers.
A pretty amazing ropes course for campers here
 
 
 
Smile ART!
 
The giant swing was cool.

What would a camp be without bugs?

Thanks to Camp Twin Lakes for inviting Callie to be a part of their Summer 2015 program.  Camp Twin Lakes claims that the camp is "life changing" for campers.  As a mother of a counselor, I believe the Camp Twin Lakes to be "life changing" for counselors, too.
