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 have  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…

Wild West

I will always kick off the theme with five suggestions.

  1. Ask the campers to bring bandanas, boots, cowboy hats, and overalls.
  2. A theme meal of franks and beans with everyone dressed up is a must.
  3. Desperado is a great camp song that would fit in nicely with the Wild West theme.
  4. A Hoe Down would make the perfect evening activity. Try line dancing to disco music. It’s a blast!
  5. Indian folklore provides great campfire stories.
