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 Cruise Ship 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…

Cruise Ship

As always I will kick off the theme with five suggestions. Then it’s your turn to leave your awesome suggestions and ideas in the comments area below.

  1. Set up the different areas of camp as the cruise ship – Use the pool as every cruise ship has at least one pool. Use a room for movies. Set-up a spa where campers can learn how to give a massage or give each other manicures and pedicures. Have the gift shop (trading post) open. Have snacks available. Set up a casino. Have a teens only area. Let the campers go where they want during the “cruise”. OF course, set limits. You don’t want anyone to go overboard (off-limits).
  2. Teach campers how to make towel animals. This is very popular on cruise ships.
  3. Have a casino night.
  4. Have the cruise ship “dock” at the island location. Then have a Caribbean or Hawaiian carnival/festival with games, water activities, luau and/or other island activities. Get a steel drum or two for the campers to try.
  5. Take photos of the cruise and island adventures. At the end of the week/session have a slideshow set to music. Start the slideshow off with some fun island music, maybe some Reggae or steel drums, and end it with Sarah McLachlan’s “I will Remember You”.
