Welcome to Camp Thunderbird




Camp Thunderbird is the premier summer destination for children to make friends, and expand their talents, in a warm and safe setting. We are dedicated to each child feeling a sense of connection, accomplishment and independence, which in turn builds self-esteem and confidence. We are excited to give the children from Carlson, Monroe, and Southwest YMCA's communities the opportunity to come together for an experience of a lifetime.

Set on 800 spectacular acres located along the eastern banks of the Genesee River in the Genesee Valley Park, Camp Thunderbird provides campers ages 4-15 with a well-balanced program. Campers will experience a dynamic program weekly including swimming, sports, adventure and creative/performing arts. A flexible 10-week summer camp season accommodates the needs of our camp families. Our experienced staff and innovative program guarantees that Every Day is a Great Day at Camp Thunderbird!
