CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Camp Thunderbird is an unforgettable experience that includes adventure, fun, and friendship! Located just 17 miles from Charlotte, N.C., Camp Thunderbird has nationally recognized water programs, including wakeboarding and water skiing.

We offer 28 land activities including horseback riding, skating, high and low ropes courses, sports, and crafts. Our resident camp provides boys and girls an exciting, safe experience that they will remember for a lifetime.

American Camping Association accreditation and a 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio creates an environment that helps children grow in spirit, mind, and body.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The Counselor In Training (CIT) program at YMCA Camp Thunderbird is designed to provide leadership experiences specific to camp counseling to rising high school juniors. Though most program participants have attended camp as campers, this is not necessarily a prerequisite.

However, it should be noted that CIT selection is competitive. Candidates must submit a written application (available upon request through the camp office) by December 31, and will be interviewed by telephone during January and February. Candidates are advised of their status early in March.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Contact office for availability.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Labor Day Weekend

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: Camp Thunderbird's Environmental Education program is conveniently located at YMCA Camp Thunderbird on Lake Wylie and offers more than 20 class topics taught by knowledgeable, exemplary staff.

During retreat weekends we offer an excellent team building program that can boost your team's productivity and morale while building upon each other's strengths. Our facilitators customize programs that accomplish your goals. Our team building experience focuses on communication, cooperation, and having fun as a team.
