Theme-of-the-Day is a daily post where we ask readers to leave their summer camp ideas, using the day’s theme, in the comments section. What ideas and suggestions do you haveĀ  for the Theme of the Day? What game, craft, apparel choice, theme meal, evening activity, special event, song, skit, or anything else would you do at camp if your theme was…


Below are my five suggestions. What’s yours?

  1. Create unique adventures in different areas of camp. Take a lesson from Disneyland. Each area of the theme park has a different theme; Tomorrowland, Frontierland, Fantasyland, Adventureland, Main Street, and ToonTown.
  2. Create a GeoCache route and have the older campers do it on horseback.
  3. Create an adventure race. In an adventure race you can have teams do a combination of the following – run, hike, bike, climb, kayak, sail, perform team challenges, answer trivia questions, swim, perform sports skills, etc.
  4. Have a treasure hunt of some kind.
  5. Go whitewater rafting.
