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 1/3 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!
