Q. What is Thunder Camp?
A. Thunder Camp is an explosive, fun-filled week-long creative arts and ministry camp in Nashville, Tennessee for students aged 13 to 18. Thunder Camp focuses on Biblical teaching, missions outreach, discipleship, encouragement, and creative interests. Students will have the opportunity to live in the dorms on campus, work together in teams and bands to write and perform music, drama, and/or dance, receive experience in missions and serving, and have a blast with their peers and staff leaders for a life-changing, inspiring, God-led week of growth and equipping.
Q. When should I apply?
A. As soon as possible! Applications are processed in the order that they are received and only 25 spaces are available.
Application Deadline is May 16th.
Q. What is the cost?
A. $350 per person
*If sent by February 1st tuition is $325
Q. Can I bring a friend or come with my youth group?
A. Yes! Group rates are as follows:
3 or more students - $300 per student
Q. How does the group rate work?
A. This discount is REALLY intended to bring in FIRST TIME campers that are friends of alumni, not to group already existing RETURNING CAMPERS .
This discount gives the opportunity and incentive for EACH camper to bring NEW friends each year. For example: In order for you to get a group discount, you need to bring a brand new friend.
Therefore, the group discount DOES NOT apply when returning campers (alumni) are grouped together with other returning campers. We do make an EXCEPTION for siblings with group discounts. Meaning that siblings CAN receive our group discount.
*Also please note that each family can use ONE discount but cannot combine discounts. For example: You cannot apply for a group discount AND a early registration discount. The camp fee is set to its lowest amount to help cover costs, so Thunder Camp will lose money by discounting more.
