    I have been checking here for several years, and I appreciate not only the website, but the input and ideas from everybody else! Keep up the great work!

    A theme we plan to do for 2014 is “Everyday Heroes.” We are a day camp and have many friends and parents that are EMS, Police, Fire and Military, and will be celebrating each of those areas with guest visitors, activities, games and contests.

  2. Big Mike says

    We do theme weeks at our camp, and every day we have a different theme related to the broader theme of the week. This year I plan to do a Muppets week, with Animal (music day), Miss Piggy (messy day), Bunsen and Beaker (science day), Swedish Chef (cooking day), and of course Kermit (field trip to the local marshlands).

  3. Karen Christman says

    This yer I’m doing Gilligan Island. We will run water events every day and have our own professor corner.

    I’ve used quite a few of these themes, or very similar themes, for our day camp! They’re always a huge hit with everyone- campers, parents, staff, you name it! :)
