Spin For Kids is Camp Twin Lakes' annual fundraising bike ride that helps provide life-changing camp experiences for children with serious illnesses, disabilities, or other life challenges. On October 1st at Camp Twin Lakes Rutledge, our riders’ fundraising efforts culminate in a fun and fulfilling ride that winds through the scenic backroads of beautiful Morgan County, Georgia.
Spin For Kids offers multiple routes for riders of all skill levels. Participants can choose from six scenic road routes: 5, 15, 27, 47, 62 or 100 miles – or choose to ride from anywhere in the world, including your home, with our “SFK From Anywhere” option. Along each route, riders enjoy delicious goodies and local fare at our rest stops, while our dedicated team of first aid, route marshals, and bike technicians keeps riders safe.
After crossing the finish line, riders join family and friends in a celebration of their accomplishments including delicious food, beer, live music and a chance to explore Camp. After all, 100% of the funds raised by Spin For Kids riders help Camp Twin Lakes provide life-changing experiences for our campers, and that’s something to celebrate!
Over the past 17 years, Spin For Kids has raised over $5 million and sent more than 7,272 kids to camp. Join us as we celebrate 17 years of changing gears to change lives, and the 30th anniversary of Camp Twin Lakes!
This year is a special time at Camp Twin Lakes. Thanks to the incredible support of our community, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary serving children and families diagnosed with a serious illness, disability, or life challenge. Also, in our 30th year, we are opening our third campus that will serve up to 3,500 additional campers. We will continue to ensure every single camper has access to our life-changing program through our Camper Scholarship Program. Our community’s support is needed now, more than ever.
Camp Twin Lakes has provided week-long summer camps and year-round weekend retreats at fully-accessible and medically-supportive, state-of-the-art campuses located in Rutledge and Winder, Georgia for over 30 years.

“365 days a year I can’t walk, but at Camp Twin Lakes, I can fly,” said a young camper as she was gently lowered back into her wheelchair after flying down the zip line at Camp Twin Lakes.
