About 500 cyclists and 150 volunteers gathered at Camp Twin Lakes last Sunday for the annual Spin for Kids fundraiser.
Spin For Kids raises money for Camp Twin Lakes’ Camper Scholarship Program. These funds ensure each of the 10,000 children and teens served annually at Camp Twin Lakes have the opportunity to participate in year-round, transformative camp programs, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
For more than 25 years, Camp Twin Lakes has provided life-changing camp experiences to thousands of children and teens just through week-long summer camps and year-round weekend retreats at three fully-accessible and medically-supportive campsites, and through hospital-based Camp-To-Go programs across the state. Camp Twin Lakes collaborates with more than 60 nonprofit organizations, each serving a different population, to create customized programs that teach campers to overcome obstacles and grow in their confidence and capabilities.
