Drop-Off & Pick-Up Times

You may drop off your camper each day between 2:45 and 3:10 each day

  • Gates will not open until 2:45pm as our staff will be preparing for your campers arrival until then.
  • Pick-up time is 9:45pm.
  • Both drop-off and pick-up will be through the Camp Thurman gates on Smith Barry Road, located at 3100 Smith Barry Road, Pantego, TX 76013.


Late Arrival & Early Pick-Up

Parents must sign in/out campers that are arriving late or leaving early. This means you must park and come into the Night Camp Office. If you know that your camper will be leaving early, please let their counselor as well as the camp office know in advance so that the pick-up process will be effortless.


Camper Attire

  • Boys wear swimsuits and their t-shirt.
  • Girls should wear their swimsuit with shorts and shirt over it.
  • Girls that have finished 4th grade or higher are required to wear a tankini-style or one piece bathing suit.
  • All campers must wear closed-toe shoes.


Prepaid Snacks

If you have prepaid for snacks, you’ll see that amount listed on your information email you receive the week before camp or by viewing/downloading your statement on the Parent Dashboard. The snack shop will keep up with how much money each camper has left to spend during the camp week.

If you have not prepaid for snacks

The campers come to the snack shop each day as a group. It is one of their favorite activities. If you have not yet paid for snacks but wish to, you can still go online to your Parent Dashboard to prepay for snacks. We do not accept money from campers. Only adults may make deposits, and we do not accept cash at the snack shops, so please do not send money with your camper.


Pre-paid T-Shirts will be sent home with the camper on Monday evening. If you have not yet prepaid for a T-Shirt and would like to purchase one, you’ll find a T-Shirt Order Form on the Parent Dashboard FORMS tab in your camper’s list of forms. The last day to order a T-Shirt will be March 14th.  Between March 15th and April 15th, you may purchase one to be mailed by going to our campthurman.org Online Store.  After that you will not be able to prepay or purchase a T-Shirt online,  However, our onsite Bambi’s Trading Post will be open Tuesdays thru Fridays each day beginning June 2nd. At the Trading Post you may purchase other merchandise as well – hats, backpacks, towels, water bottles, etc.  Night Camp parents may park at drop-off or pick-up times and go to the Night Camp Office to purchase a T-Shirt for their camper during their camp week.
