As a part of their philanthropic program, the Kids II Foundation has supported Camp Twin Lakes through monetary donations and through the hands-on volunteering of their employees. One of Kids II’s favorite experiences with CTL has been their volunteer workday in August 2010, where over 60 Kids II employees traveled to CTL-Rutledge and spent the day cleaning cabins in order to get camp recovered from 11 weeks of summer camp and ready for our year-round weekend programs. The enthusiastic employees worked so hard and the cabins were spotless! That same year, Kids II generously sponsored 50 campers for a full week of camp!
From cleaning cabins at volunteer workdays to sponsorship of Spin For Kids, more than 200 enthusiastic employees of Kids II have worked hard to help Camp Twin Lakes provide life changing experiences to our campers. Kids II purchased new aquatic wheelchairs as well as an accessible hayride wagon and a big inflatable slide. Our campers were thrilled!
