Theme-of-the-Day is a post where we ask readers to leave their summer camp ideas, using the day’s theme, in the comments section. What ideas and suggestions do you have  for the Theme of the Day? 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…

Fairy Tales

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

  1. Allice in Wonderland activities can be found here.
  2. Using the story of Cinderella campers can go on a glass slipper hunt, learn to ballroom dance and make small pumpkins into carriages.
  3. With Jack in the Beanstalk campers can go for a variety of hunts to look for magic beans, gold coins, golden eggs and a harp.
  4. Campers can follow the footsteps of Hansel and Gretel by following breadcrumbs to a shack. They must then take some candy and run away before they get caught by the witch. Making gingerbread houses would be fun as well.
  5. With a Snow White day you could have campers dress their counselor up as one of the seven dwarfs, eat apple treats and make apple crafts.
