It’s important that every child feel special, and a child with congenital or acquired heart defect is no different. At Camp Braveheart, we promote positive self-esteem with fun and learning. From team-building activities to individual support, this camp has something for everyone. We give every child the chance to experience camp, build friendships and make memories to last a lifetime.
Junior and teen camp sessions are held during the same week and share camp facilities. Junior campers, ages 7 to 13, will enjoy traditional camp activities such as boating, fishing, swimming, horseback riding, arts and crafts, and archery. All junior campers take part in exciting evening activities, such as a talent show and dance. Teen campers, ages 14 to 17, will enjoy a flexible schedule and advanced activities such as the high ropes course and zip line. Increased free time and extra evening activities give teens the chance to connect with peers.
As a parent, you can rest assured your child is exploring life in a safe and caring place. Camp Braveheart is held each year at Camp Twin Lakes. Camp Twin Lakes is a network of camps providing life-changing programs to Georgia's children with serious illnesses, disabilities and other challenges. The camp is located an hour east of Atlanta in Rutledge, Ga.
Founded in 1995 by Roger and Kathy Flynn, Camp Braveheart continues today in memory of their daughter Ansley.
