CAMP THURMAN has been providing the best day camp in the Arlington/Pantego area since 1969 and the most effective teambuilding adventures for eight years! Our mission is to provide for all ages safe, fun, wholesome outdoor programs, which demonstrate God's love, while helping individuals discover who they are in Christ.
Right in the heart of the city, we have 14 acres of trees, creeks, gullys and more! Our "fun in the woods" Day Camp is for children ages 4 through those finishing sixth grade. The kids are placed in groups of 10 to 12 children (all boys or all girls), with a Christian counselor and an assistant.
Camp Thurman's Day Camp program has been changing and growing "actively" in recent years! Each year brings new action to the day's schedule, and six years ago our "Screamer" Zip Line was extended to four lines, stretching from one side of the camp to the other. Designed for the older campers, this confidence builder remains a favorite! Added five years ago was the 9 element low ropes challenge course, giving all ages a chance to develop team cooperation and individual participation. A few seasons past we installed the Tarzan's Swing and the K-Klimb cargo net climb and the K-Klimb Zip for our mid-age campers. Just three years ago we installed the Roxburgh's Ropes Challenge in the Sky, and if you were here last season, you played on the many new elements at Kidron Valley, dodged balls in the Slap Dodge Ball Arena, and enjoyed skits at the newly renovated Marketplace stage.
