Theme of the Week is a post where we ask readers like you to comment with ideas for a particular theme. What ideas and suggestions do you have for an Amazing Race theme? 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…

Amazing Race

Below are my five suggestions. What’s yours?

  1. Set-up 10 challenges from different countries and have teams compete in all of them. Teams travel from “country to country” participating in different challenges. The team that finishes first wins. Make sure they have their passports with them.
  2. If you’re doing an amazing race make sure you add in detours (team has to choose between two tasks) and road blocks (only one person from each team performs the task).
  3. Any craft project representing another country would be appropriate.
  4. Video tape as much as possible and, after editing it, show it to the camp at the end of the week.
  5. If you have international staff have them either run the challenges that are “in their country” or have them be the ambassadors of that country, welcoming the teams.
