Frequently Asked Questions
What if I want to pick up their T-Shirt or make a snack deposit?
Before summer camp begins, May 18th will be T-Shirt Pickup Day. You will be assigned a particular time based on the account last name. That will be the only day before camp that T-Shirts will be distributed. During camp, in the morning or the afternoon you’ll need to park to come to the office area to pick up or purchase shirts or make snack deposits. On Monday mornings, please go to the snack shop by Broomtree (just to the right of the covered bleachers area) to make snack deposits. If you have not already pickup your T-shirts they may be picked up or purchased at Bambi’s Trading Post just south of the camp office, behind the gazebo.

What are your cancellation policies?
No refunds will be made for Cancellations or Change of Weeks in the last two weeks before your session date. If the staff has time to research and is successful in finding a replacement for your camper after a Cancellation or Change of Weeks request during the last two weeks, the cancellation/change fee for either will be $50.
REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF WEEKS POLICY: If you submit a CHANGE of WEEKS request at least two weeks before your camp session, as long as the week you are wanting to change to has availability, you may change weeks for your camper. Request for changing weeks must be made through your Parent Dashboard FORMS page. You will find a Change a Week request form in the list of forms. No changes will be made by phone, email, or notes. There is a $5 fee to make that change on the first request. Any subsequent changes would incur a $10 fee. Penalties: A Change of Weeks request in the last two weeks before your session date is treated like a Cancellation and the fees will not be transferred to the new week. If there is availability in the week you want to change to, you will need to pay the camp fees again. If the staff has time to research and is successful in finding a replacement for your camper after a Change of Weeks request during the last two weeks, the change fee will be $50.

Do you have programs for families who have children with special needs?
In order to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience at Camp Thurman for our campers with special needs, we offer weeks 2 through 9 in our Day Camp program only. Although we do not have staff specifically trained in special needs, we make every effort to help our campers have a successful experience at camp. As you register, please indicate your campers special needs and our Special Needs Coordinator will follow up with you to complete the special needs process.
Due to the considerable difference in the programming, grouping, and staffing, we are unable to offer campers with special needs the opportunity to participate in our afternoon/evening camps.

At Camp Thurman we may be able to serve some campers with special needs. If your camper is in a typical classroom, without an assistant, but has emotional or communication issues, please indicate that in the next question. We will need further information in order for the family and Camp Thurman to determine if CT is a fit for them. You MUST submit the Special Needs Forms for some additional information to help us provide a fun, successful week for them. You’ll find that form under the camper’s Forms tab on the Parent Dashboard.
In order to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience at Camp Thurman for our campers with special needs, we offer only weeks 2 through 9 in our Day Camp Program, with a 2 week maximum and no back to back weeks. In consideration of the special programming of our evening camps, ETC, Explosion, Breakout and Getaway are not available.
