For Counselors

 

Camp Wannaklot is a week-long summer camp for children who have hemophilia or another inherited bleeding disorder. We have a medical staff on site for the entire week, so volunteers do not need a medical background, first aid courses, or CPR certification.

Hemophilia of Georgia partners with Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia to host Camp Wannaklot. Camp Twin Lakes is one hour east of Atlanta, off Interstate 20. Campers will participate in a variety of activities including horseback riding, archery, fishing, paddle boating, canoeing, and swimming.  We need counselors to help them have a fun, safe week.  This is a residential camp, which means we stay at camp the entire week. All lodging, activities, and meals are provided for counselors and campers.

So, What Do Camp Wannaklot Counselors Do?

  • Work with the Lead Counselor to guide and direct the campers in a variety of activities
  • Provide leadership and support to assigned cabin group
  • Know where assigned campers are at all times
  • Maintain a positive attitude
  • Participate in activities in a way that provides for the health, safety and well being of campers and staff
  • Have fun!

And, What Do Camp Counselors Need to Know?

Camp Wannaklot Counselors should be familiar with hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease, the bleeding disorders that affect most of the campers at Camp Wannaklot.
