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 Animal Planet 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…

Animal Planet

Below are five ideas. Leave your suggestions in the comments area below.

  1. For a list of neat animal crafts visit the DLTK site.
  2. Have an animal handler bring animals to camp. This can be someone from the local zoo or a professional animal entertainer.
  3. Each cabin or group can be named after an animal. As you call the cabins or groups into the dining hall refer to them by their animal name, “Okay, Jaguars you can go next”.
  4. Decorate the dining hall like a jungle, forest or the sea. I guess a desert would work, too.
  5. Hold a contest for the best impression of whatever animal is picked out of a hat.
