Day campers enjoy a fun-filled, five-day program and participate in many age-appropriate activities. Travelling on the bus is part of the fun of going to Day Camp—we sing songs and play games to build excitement on the way to camp. Once at camp, day campers spend time in groups of 9-12  learning outdoor skills such as canoeing, kayaking and rock climbing and enjoying new friendships with fellow campers. Day campers participate in the same activities as overnight campers, and spend some time integrated with the overnight program. Participants can choose to stay for an optional one-night sleepover at camp. The overnight includes dinner in the dining hall, sleeping overnight at camp, and breakfast the next day.

For campers who have completed grades K-5

  • 6:1 camper to staff ratio
  • 5 days
  • Optional overnight sleepover at camp
  • Swimming, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, archery, orienteering, hiking and teambuilding
  • Music, creative programming, and  campfires


Information in this booklet is updated every year, and all of the information is vital for your camper(s) to have a successful experience. Please read carefully even if you have been to camp before! Life at camp is different from the routines and patterns of home. Taking the time to talk with your camper(s) about their upcoming experience is an important step in preparing. Setting a positive tone and clarifying expectations can really help your child make the adjustment. In doing this, your child will take the most out of their Camp Thunderbird opportunity.
