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 a Construction 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…


Here are my five suggestions. Leave yours in the comments area below.

  1. Give each group blueprints on a structure and then have them build it out of Legos or Kinex.
  2. Have older campers construct a camp project, like a recycling center, a needed fence or some teambuilding equipment (like an all aboard platform).
  3. Have a construction job board. When the construction whistle blows teams race to the board and grab a project. Each project is worth a certain amount of points depending on the difficulty of the project. Some teams may want to tackle a hard project for more points. Another team might opt to finish as many easy projects as they can.
  4. If you have a tractor or a large construction vehicle, give rides to the campers.
  5. Let campers have fun with remote control construction vehicles.
