Frequently Asked Questions

What are your cancellation policies?
REQUEST FOR CANCELLATION POLICY: Cancellations/Penalties: 
A 50% refund is available if you cancel at least two weeks before your session date. 
 If it is at least two weeks before the session date, and we are able to replace your camper with someone from the waitlist, you will receive a full refund, less a $25 cancellation fee.
No refunds will be made for Cancellations or Change of Weeks in the last two weeks before your session date.  If the staff has time to research and is successful in finding a replacement for your camper after a Cancellation or Change of Weeks request during the last two weeks, the cancellation/change fee for either will be $50.
REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF WEEKS POLICY: If you submit a CHANGE of WEEKS request at least two weeks before your camp session, as long as the week you are wanting to change to has availability, you may change weeks for your camper. Request for changing weeks must be made through your Parent Dashboard FORMS page.  You will find a Change a Week request form in the list of forms. No changes will be made by phone, email, or notes. There is a $5 fee to make that change on the first request. Any subsequent changes would incur a $10 fee. Penalties: A Change of Weeks request in the last two weeks before your session date is treated like a Cancellation and the fees will not be transferred to the new week.  If there is availability in the week you want to change to, you will need to pay the camp fees again.  If the staff has time to research and is successful in finding a replacement for your camper after a Change of Weeks request during the last two weeks, the change fee will be $50.
Does CT offer scholarships?
Yes, we have scholarships available each year. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, when there are scholarship funds still available, you will need to enroll your camper with the normal registration process, choose the Extended Pay plan, and then submit a Scholarship Request Form, which you’ll find under the FORMS tab of your Parent Dashboard. Most of our scholarship budget has been distributed by March of each year, so be sure to register early if you are seeking a scholarship. We may also have a few scholarships that are given by our Camp Thurman Supporters which may still be available later in the year. Please email your desire to apply for one of those to info@campthurman.org.
Do you have payment plans available?
Yes, we do. During the registration process you will choose between Full Payment and the Extended Payment Plan. If you choose the payment plan, you will be asked to pay only the $5 payment plan fee at the time of registration. Then payments will be automatically charged each month remaining before your camp week begins. You will be able to see those payment dates during the payment process of registration.
What is the cost of the camps?
You’ll find camp costs on our registration page. Our fees range from $199 for Sunshine Camp to $515 for GetAway Camp. Regular Day Camp is $275.
Do you have programs for families who have children with special needs?

In order to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience at Camp Thurman for our campers with special needs, we offer weeks 2 through 9 in our Day Camp program only. Although we do not have staff specifically trained in special needs, we make every effort to help our campers have a successful experience at camp. As you register, please indicate your campers special needs and our Special Needs Coordinator will follow up with you to complete the special needs process.

We are unable to offer participation for campers with special needs if they are unable to participate independently, without a helper. Due to the considerable difference in the programming, grouping, and staffing, we are unable to offer campers with special needs the opportunity to participate in our afternoon/evening camps.

Are there times when parents can experience some of Camp Thurman's activities with the campers?

Absolutely! Each year in September, we offer a Family Fun Day, giving our camp families a chance to share Camp Thurman activities together. Then, in December, we have a special Camp Thurman Christmas event.

Policies

Camper Code of Conduct

In order to best serve our campers, there are certain expectations that need to be met for campers to experience a safe and fun environment here at Camp Thurman.

Special Needs

At Camp Thurman we may be able to serve some campers with special needs. If your camper is in a typical classroom, without an assistant, but has emotional or communication issues, please indicate that in the next question. We will need further information in order for the family and Camp Thurman to determine if CT is a fit for them. You MUST submit the Special Needs Forms for some additional information to help us provide a fun, successful week for them. You’ll find that form under the camper’s Forms tab on the Parent Dashboard.

In order to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience at Camp Thurman for our campers with special needs, we offer only weeks 2 through 9 in our Day Camp Program, with a 2 week maximum and no back to back weeks. In consideration of the special programming of our evening camps, ETC, Explosion, Breakout and Getaway are not available.

What Not to Bring

In order to continually maintain safety here at camp, we have a few guidelines and prohibited items on campgrounds.

Safety

In order to keep every child at camp safe, we ask that every parent keep in mind our safety policy detailed below.

Swim

Each week we do an evaluation of your camper’s swimming skills to determine how we can make your camper’s time with us as safe as possible.
