Day Camps

CT's traditional Day Camp from 4 years old through the fifth grade. Celebrating over 40 years of fun and adventure, campers experience our full range of age appropriate activities from swimming, group games, and challenge adventures.



Night Camps

Our Afternoon/Evening Camps give campers entering 7th, 8th, or 9th in fall 2015 a chance to see how fun the evening at CT can be. We have created a special atmosphere for our older campers with programs and activities just for their age, and now we are offering an Overnight Camp with that unique Camp Thurman touch for our 7th, 8th, and 9th graders.


Challenge Adventures

Adventure days are designed to create spaces for groups to build trust, improve communication, practice problem-solving, and develop closer relationships with one another.



Camp Thurman has a wide variety of activities, great location and is Christian based. The communication with our counselor was great, we were able to text, call and email him. Every day my child begged to go back to camp because he had so much fun! - David A

Rainy Day Information

Parents, Guardians and Campers:

We are monitoring the weather conditions very closely! At Camp Thurman safety is our highest priority!

In the case of a rainy day, camp will resume as usual.  Campers schedules will not be impacted by rain.  In the case of more severe weather such as lightning or thunder, all of our ropes activities and swimming pools will be closed until the all clear has been given to resume normal activities.

Campers will continue their day on rainy day schedules that are packed full of games, skits and silly songs under our shelters.  This makes for a fun and unique day at CT.  In the event of anything more severe than a thunderstorm, campers will be moved to our covered storm shelters.  Our primary goal is to make sure that your campers are always safe!

Our desire is to allow the camp day to continue as long as it is possible and safe. In the event that conditions deteriorate to the point that the camp property is no longer safe we will post information on our Facebook page and website.  Please check them regularly for updates.

**Please note, if parents/guardians/carpools begin picking up campers early on their own without notice from the CT staff it will seriously impact our ability to bring campers to you in a timely basis. Our staff is assigned to be with your children and there is no crew available to go and get campers a handful at a time during a regular/rainy day schedule.
