Day Camp

Day Camp (Grades K - 5)

Camp Thompson offers an authentic summer experience for children entering Kindergarten through fifth grade. On sunny days, campers will travel to Camp Thompson where they will engage in a variety of activities such as hiking, swimming, and playing outdoor games. Rainy days will be spent at the Norwich Family YMCA swimming, playing indoor games in the Kids’ Gym and Big Gym, and completing crafts. Children will be placed into age appropriate groups. Each group will have dedicated Camp counselors that will guide them as they make rotations to various activities throughout the day. A summer spent at camp is a summer full of new experiences, friendships, and loving the outdoors.    

Junior Leaders at Camp Thompson (Grades 6 - 8)

In our Junior Leaders Program, students in 6th – 8th grade will have the opportunity to participate in team building exercises, special projects at Camp Thompson, and a variety of outdoor activities such as canoeing and hiking. These campers will be able to enjoy the freedom of summer while having the guidance of a Camp Counselor. This program allows young teens to practice leadership skills through hands-on and engaging experiences.
