Even in the days when visiting Twin Rocks Friends Camp meant pitching a tent in a field, it was still marked by smiling faces and nature’s breathtaking beauty. Something about camp keeps us coming back. Below are a few photos of Twin Rocks’ development through the years that we hope elicit memories of your own transformative camp experience.
