Uncle Bill’s Kids Club

History of Uncle Bill’s

For more than 50 years Bill Sweaney (one of Camp Thurman’s founders) taught Sunday School to 2 and 3 year olds. He and his wife Nona wanted to be a part of helping these kids learn early that Jesus loves them. This pre-camp program has the same mission – sharing the love of Jesus in an exciting, safe, fun, outdoor camp with CT’s youngest.

With fewer total campers, smaller groups, and more individual time at each activity, Uncle Bill’s Kids Club is perfect for our little 4 and 5-year old campers.

What will my camper do?

More one-on-one interaction with staff gives many young campers more confidence to participate in activities such as ziplines at the Jordan Gully, archery and BB guns at the ranges, a petting zoo, crafts, a Slip ‘N Slide and more. Each day starts with a big group Bible lesson and ends together with Skits and Songs. All groups will also swim once a day and have a chance to visit our Snack Shop.

How much does it cost?

The registration fee for Uncle Bill’s is $220. This includes all camp activities and a photo package. Snacks and t-shirt are not included but can be pre-paid at the time of registration.

Uncle Bill’s is offered only the week of May 29 to June 2 from 9am to 12:30pm.

This optional come-and-go event is designed to give campers and parents the opportunity to meet their counselor before their camp week. It can help calm nerves of anxious campers and provides a chance for campers to become familiar with Camp Thurman before drop-off time on Monday morning. Uncle Bill’s camper t-shirts will also be available for pick-up this day.
