Camp Thayer Overview
We hope you join us for a relaxed and socially engaging summer at Camp Thayer!
Camp Thayer is for children – a place where dedicated teachers make the summer fun.
Our mission is to provide children with an opportunity to develop in an atmosphere of respect, trust, and friendship.
Lunch is provided in our air-conditioned dining hall. Water is available throughout the day.
- Our experienced head counselors are primarily teaching professionals.
- Our senior counselors are generally college students,.
- Our junior counselors are high school students.
- All members of the aquatic staff are certified lifeguards and water safety instructors.
- Our counselors are chosen for their dedication, enthusiasm, and ability to serve as positive role models.
Our programs, including all sports camps, are intentionally non-competitive, so that participants can strive for personal satisfaction and growth in whatever they do. Our diverse groups of campers bring their own unique talents and aptitudes to help create a fun and dynamic summer experience for all.
Each week offers a different variety of Sports and Specialty Programs from track & field to football to Photoshop and science.
Those wishing to attend one or several weeks of General Camps (Weeks 1-8), can select from one of four options:
Lower Camp (Ages 3.9 – 5)
General Camp (Ages 6-13/Grades 1 – 8)
CIT Program – Counselors In Training (Ages 14 – 16)
Extended Day (for all ages)
The Lower & General Camp sessions are complemented by a range of special events. This may include a Hawaiian luau, a carnival, or a battle of colors.
