The Camp Twin Lakes treehouse is a newly built treetop structure nestled in Rutledge, Georgia, and part of the non-profit Camp Twin Lakes organization.

Camp Twin Lakes “provides places and paths for children with serious illnesses and life challenges to experience the joys of childhood and grow in their confidence and capabilities.” Designed by Amy Leathers of Lord, Aeck & Sargent, the Camp Twin Lakes treehouse is a new addition to the camp’s ‘Wild Side’ (a secluded part of the site) and is an eco-friendly and wheelchair-accessible structure with slides, a climbing net, zip line, and trap doors.

With sustainable elements including a green roof garden, solar array, and dry composting toilets, the Camp Twin Lakes treehouse lets campers have fun while also learning about sustainability and green living.
