Theme-of-the-Day is a daily 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 haveĀ  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…

Space is the Place

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. Create spaceships as a craft with sticks, foil, paint, paper and beads. The campers will come up with all kinds of interesting space “crafts”.
  2. Water rockets can be made from 2-liter soda bottles or you can buy the kits. Either way, they are a lot of fun and educational too.
  3. Alien Hunt – This is a counselor hunt where the counselors hide and the campers try to find them, earning their team or unit valuable points. Have the counselors dress up as aliens and send the Space Frontiers (campers) in search of the aliens that have specific intel on this new planet.
  4. Star gazing – need I say more?
  5. Have campers dress their counselors up like aliens from a distant galaxy.
