Summer Camp

Thorne Summer Camp has been connecting youth to nature for over 60 years and with this experience we know that KIDS GROW BETTER IN NATURE! Our day camps for children ages 3-15, in Boulder and Lafayette, focus on outdoor exploration, wilderness skills, and so much more. Thorne campers follow their passions, build confidence, and learn about and connect with nature, all while having a lot of FUN. Join us for your child’s best summer ever!  


Mark your calendars! Summer Camp 2023 registration opens January 11th at 5:30 pm.
