Toni's Camp Retreat
The retreat consists of several activities geared to the spiritual, social and recreational needs of special education students, youths and adults ages 14 and up 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 elimi- nated, 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.
Toni's Camp Retreat will be held May 2 - May 4, 2014.

Toni's Camp is very fun, and at times very loud this camp is not appropriate for campers who would become very agitated and/or aggressive in an over stimulating environment.
