Free Time

At Thunderbird, we balance structure with downtime. Campers enjoy free time to hang out, play games like roof ball, gaga, tetherball, ultimate pong, nine-square-in-the-air, read, listen to music and much more. Campers’ creativity and imaginations flourish as they explore camp and choose how to spend their time with friends or staff. Campers make use of free time to feed the new kittens discovered under the log pile, jump in muddy puddles and be kids!
