Programs and Retreat Facilities
The retreat consists of several activities geared to the spiritual,
social and recreational needs of special education students, youths and adults
and is held at Camp Twin Lakes. Twin Lakes is a recreation area in Rutledge,
Georgia, devoted solely to the needs of those with disabilities. Steep slopes,
steps, uneven walks and narrow doorways have been eliminated, allowing full
access to the facilities.
The emphasis during the weekend will be spiritual. Morning and
Evening prayer will be part of each day and Mass will be celebrated on Sunday.
