The Transition Robert Lipman's 35-Year Journey | Robert Lipman Atlanta Ga

Robert Lipman Atlanta Ga

It has been almost 10 years since Robert Lipman sold his successful practice in Atlanta and dedicated himself full-time to developing a children's retreat on a 450-acre property in Ellijay, Georgia. Over the years, the property has grown to include three mountains, two lakes, 12 miles of trails, and a full-service campground with a 9-bunk treehouse. Robert has always had a dream of providing a full-fledged camp for disadvantaged kids at the retreat, but until recently, he had no mentor or advisor to guide him in achieving this goal.

Just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jay Zipperman and his Mountain Wisdom Camp approached Robert about using the property. Mountain Wisdom Camp, which has been directed by Jay for over 20 years, is a wonderful camping experience for both boys and girls in a natural environment. However, due to the pandemic, they were displaced from their usual location in the national forest and saw the potential for using Robert's property as a new location.

This partnership was beneficial for both Jay and Robert, as it allowed Jay to continue his camp and gave Robert the opportunity to learn about camp operations.

Over the past year, with Jay's expertise and camp connections, Robert, Jay, and other knowledgeable individuals have visited camps throughout the southeast to gain a better understanding of how to develop and operate a new camp. Robert now realizes that expanding The Retreat into a full-time camp will be a long, difficult, and expensive process and will require the retreat to become a full-time business rather than just a weekend commitment.
