In response to COVID 19, Thorne has shifted to a small group size camp model for 2020. Our small group size camps will allow Boulder County youth to safely explore in nature and offer just the right mix of fun and hands-on learning.  Use the links below to learn more about our two new camps for youth ages 6 to 11.  Or, if you are ready to begin the registration process now, please complete the SMALL GROUP NATURE CAMP INTEREST FORM or the CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE NATURE CAMP INTEREST FORM. Thorne has been providing a safe and fun, high quality camp since 1957, and this summer will be no different!

As a result of COVID-19, we will reach 90% fewer campers in 2020. Our plan is to continue to offer full scholarships to 1 in every 5 Thorne campers and to focus our scholarship giving in Lafayette through the Nature Kids program.
