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…
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.
- 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).
- Teach campers how to make towel animals. This is very popular on cruise ships.
- Have a casino night.
- 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.
- 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”.
