Paddle Georgia Coordinator
Taylor works with the Georgia River Network to coordinate a unique, week-long experience for our teen campers. During this trip, campers paddle across hundreds of miles of Georgia rivers and camp at various locations along the way.
"I fell in love with Camp Horizon 10 years ago when I worked on Camp Twin Lakes summer staff. For four years, I got to witness the transformations that took place at Camp Horizon with their strong bonds to one another and their mission to Atlanta's children. As well as being a summer counselor, I was able to be on the first trip on Paddle GA in 2013. Since then, it has been my privilege to take our LDP campers on the adventure of a lifetime for 100 miles of paddling and camping every June."

"I’m inspired by our campers’ resilience during summer camp and watching them transition into peer leaders through our Leadership Development Program. I’m also inspired by seeing our volunteers transition from summer camp counselors into leaders within this organization"
