Day campers enjoy a fun-filled, five-day program and participate in many age-appropriate activities. Travelling on the bus is included to and from camp. During registration you may select the location for pick up and drop off.  Once at camp, day campers spend time in groups of 8-10, learning outdoor skills such as canoeing, kayaking, swimming and archery while enjoying new friendships with fellow campers. This year some of our programs will differ from previous years. Campers will not be able to participate in any large group activities. They will stay in their small groups for their entire time at camp. That means Campfire, Swim and the ever popular DISCO programs will be altered or replaced, in order to maintain our physical distancing requirements.

For campers who have completed grades K-8 at the end of the current school year.  At this time we can not accommodate children who have not attended Kindergarten.

Day Camp Info Booklet


Registration in day camp INCLUDES bus transportation both ways each day. Campers may be driven by car to and from Camp Thunderbird by a parent or guardian.

COVID-19 Screening

Campers and 1 caregiver will be asked to arrive at the bus stop 15 minutes before the scheduled bus departure times, this will give staff enough time to review the pre-screening forms. Campers and care givers will need to line up with 2m spacing. Screening will also occur at camp for any one who is driven to camp directly by a parent or guardian.

Bus Protocols – Updated 

Every passenger on the bus will have their own seat. Mask wearing will be required for staff and campers. We encourage you to bring your own mask, if you do not have one we will provide one for you.  If your camper can not wear a mask for medical reasons please contact us.  Bus seats and handrails will be disinfected before anyone gets on the bus. All passengers will sanitize their hands before getting on the bus and will wash their hands when they arrive at camp.

Bus Departure and Arrival Times
Please be patient, screening will be new for all of us and we anticipate it may take longer to check in campers. PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY.
