Camp Thompson Day Camp


If your day camper is looking for a little adventure this summer, we invite you to Camp Thompson for a one-of-a-kind, once-a-summer day camp experience! Camp Thompson has been a Y camping tradition for almost a century and is located between Laurel and Fuller lakes along the historic Appalachian Trail. Our facilities include a modern bath house, a wellness center with an on-site health care provider, dining hall, pavilion, volleyball court, two high ropes courses, paint ball course and much more. With all this and more, Camp Thompson is the perfect place for your camper to make new friends and explore all that Y camping has to offer. Join us for one special week of day camp at Camp Thompson! This camp fills very quickly! Campers will enjoy all of these activities and more: arts & crafts, swimming, low ropes initiative park, outdoor living skills, sports, tubing, canoeing, nature, archery and large group games.
