Camp Twin Creeks, One Incredible Experience – Two Weeks at a Time

Camp Twin Creeks is a co-ed sleep-away camp located in Minnehaha Springs, West Virginia. Nestled in the Allegheny Mountains, the camp site has been home to summer fun for more than 60 years. Twin Creeks offers a truly unique program that features a complete camping experience with a beginning, middle, and end in just two weeks. Children experience the outdoors, develop lasting friendships and learn new skills as part of a community that fosters teamwork, fairness, and cooperation. Coupled with a caring and dedicated staff, Camp Twin Creeks is an excellent option for first-time campers and families looking for shorter session lengths.

The Camp Twin Creeks program is designed to expose campers to every activity while offering them elective opportunities in areas of interest. A campers schedule will vary based on their age; younger campers (entering grades 2-4) have four scheduled group activities and two elective activities each day. By contrast, older campers (entering grades 8-10) have two scheduled activities and four electives each day. Campers attend scheduled activities with their cabin while electives are grouped by age division.
