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 Safari 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…


Below are five of my ideas. Leave yours in the comments area below.

  1. Have staff dress as animals and space them out around camp. Then take the campers on a walking safari or use a camp bus.
  2. Get a bunch of small plastic animals and/or stuffed animals and place them along a trail. Then have two groups go on an animal hunt.
  3. Host a game show where the topics are all about animals you might see on a safari. The campers will have fun and learn some animal facts.
  4. Take a field trip to the zoo.
  5. Check out the safari activities here.

Okay, your turn. What are you great ideas?
