Camp Thurman 2021

Make Memories You'll Never Forget

The internet is abuzz with rave reviews of Camp Thurman—from parent, from campers, from counselors, and from the community. One parent review that says it all, “This is our fourth year, and my kids love Camp Thurman every second. They not only have fun, but they learn about God. The staff is great and very attentive. Thank God for Camp Thurman!”

Investing in Kids

Established in 1969, Camp Thurman is a nonprofit, ministry-minded camp dedicated to sharing God’s love and helping people pursue their identity in Christ. Located on 14 verdant acres in Pantego, it offers summer sleepover camp, day camp, team building, and camp-style activities for kids throughout the year. Because of its lush, country setting, kids can feel far from home, when they may only be miles away. It’s no wonder one longtime Camp Thurman camper wrote, “Camp is my favorite part of the summer every single year.”

Investing in Families

Over the past 52 years, Camp Thurman has touched and molded the lives of approximately 128,000 campers. In 2000, they realized a longtime dream of extending the reach of the camp with a year-round challenge adventure program. More than 7,000 participants of all ages enjoy Camp Thurman’s specialized programming each year through outdoor activities, corporate retreats, team building workshops, and leadership and character development workshops. Each event is fully customized for each school, college, church, non-profit organization, corporation, or other special group to create an experience that’s life changing, not only for individuals but for our community. After each event, Camp Thurman continues to act as a resource for the group. One happy dad wrote, “Loved bringing the family on Family Day. Staff is super friendly and well trained. My family and I had a great time.”

Investing in Young Adults

Camp Thurman counselors are the cream of the crop chosen through an extensive application and interview process during which each potential counselor must pen a letter explaining what they can uniquely bring to camp life. As many of them hope to return as a counselor, after making their own memories there as a camper, they understand that being at Camp Thurman is being part of a loving, Christian family. After working there three years, one counselor said, “This is one of the most fun places I’ve ever worked and truly an incredible experience. The greatest group of people work here for one common goal—to draw closer to God together.”

Investing in our Community

Camp Thurman invests in the lives of their annual 350 counselors, helping them find, explore, and strengthen their identity in Christ. Many of them return to camp throughout the year for Bible study then return to share God’s love with our community—and our world. It can make that difference for your child or young adult in 2021.
