We need counselors to help campers have a fun, safe week this summer at Camp Wannaklot. Camp Wannaklot is a weeklong summer camp for children with inherited bleeding disorders. Hemophilia of Georgia partners with Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge to host Camp Wannaklot. Campers will participate in a variety of activities including horseback riding, archery, fishing, paddle boating, canoeing, and swimming. 

This is a residential camp which means we stay at camp the entire week. All lodging, activities, and meals are provided. We have a medical staff on site, so volunteers do not need a medical background, first aid courses, or CPR certification.

What is expected of Camp Wannaklot counselors?
•    Work with the lead counselor to guide and direct the campers in activities.
•    Provide leadership and support to assigned cabin group.
•    Know the location of assigned campers at all times.
•    Participate in activities for the health, safety, and well-being of campers and staff.
•    Maintain a positive attitude.
•    Have fun!

Camp dates this summer are Sunday, July 15 to Friday, July 20. Counselors report a day early, on Saturday, July 14, for orientation and training.
