About Camp Thrive.

Camp Thrive’s mission is to spark the imagination of all children in a spiritually rich, creative, and sustainable environment. The Camp Thrive program focuses on Communication (brainstorming, leadership, journaling), Recreation, Spiritual Reflection, and Technology (cloud computing, digital photography, website, blog). We offer a unique, safe, and creative environment in which self-directed learning is encouraged and allows an atmosphere for children to learn and grow. Our professional and caring staff is here to serve their needs by reading stories, working on group projects, or playing an outdoor game. The philosophy and the Camp Thrive way emphasizes community, group play, and friendships. The program helps children develop social skills and self-esteem. The atmosphere encourages children to make new discoveries and to learn about the world around them in a safe environment. Each week community projects are based on a theme. We strive to create a community that is cooperative, supportive, and positive. Children will have the opportunity to learn new skills and work in mixed age groups (6 – 12 years old).
