Who We Are!


Our vision is to create an intergenerational camp environment where everyone feels safe, secure and accepted.

  • We believe that campers and their families benefit through close interaction with a staff that is multi-cultural, caring, and committed to high quality care.
  • We value the contributions of full time and summer staff, and want them to have the best experience possible.
  • We recognize the importance of dedicated volunteers for the effective governance and support of Camp Thorpe.
  • We value high quality, accessible facilities for campers and staff.

Make A Difference By Showing Your Support!

Camp Thorpe strives to keep our camp and programs affordable for every camper, and to ensure that all campers who want to attend are able, regardless of financial ability. The tuition we charge covers approximately 1/2 of the cost for each camper to attend a session of camp.

With each generous gift, sponsorship, and bequest your help brings us closer to meeting our goals. No gift is too small… or too large!
