Enjoy A Unique Girls Overnight Camp Experience Every Year
Whether you’re coming to Thunderbird as one of the youngest campers or beginning your journey when you’re older, you’re going to grow at Thunderbird.
It’s easy to make friends your first year at camp, and those friendships grow quickly and stay strong from year to year. Sharing a cabin means friends know each other incredibly well. Often campers find themselves heading off on camp’s extended wilderness trips many years later with those best friends that they met that first year, or even first day, of camp.
If there’s an activity, like soccer or gymnastics, you do at home, you can choose to practice and play while at camp too. You’ll return home with new skills in activities that you’re familiar with or new ones that are special to camp. Our arts, pottery, blacksmithing, music and drama programs fuel the artistic and creative souls while we have the more common sports too.
The waterfront is full of endless possibilities. While most campers come to us with some swimming experience many find the waterfront to be an exciting place to try new activities and develop skills you never thought you’d have. You might choose to learn how to water ski, to sail a boat or canoe across the lake. You water skills will most definitely grow on Lake Plantagenet.
If you’re an experienced camper or a beginner, Thunderbird is the place to find your next adventure. We start with the basics of camping so you’ll be ready for the first trip. Before departing, you’ll learn the skills you need to be safe and comfortable while you’re away, things like how to set up a tent, cook a meal, and roast a marshmallow over a campfire. If you’re interested in bigger experiences, you can backpack, bike, canoe, fish, rock climb, or sail on three to nine day long trips. When you become a seasoned camper, at age 14 to 16, you can choose to travel on multi-week adventure programs throughout the United States and Canada. Our wilderness program has something for everyone.
