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.
