Theme of the Week – Outback

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? 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.

  1. I love treasure hunts. Hide plastic crocodiles, lizards, snakes, koalas, and kangaroos around your treasure hunt area or along a hiking trail.
  2. Get a few inflatable crocodiles and an Australian Flag for decorations. Of course, you can include anything with a kangaroo, koala and a picture of the Sydney Opera House as well.
  3. Get a couple of beginner boomerangs for a throwing class and competition. Boomerangs come in different types, sizes, and for right hand and left hand throwers.
  4. Have the staff create a good Crocodile Hunter skit.
  5. Play some traditional games of the indigenous people of Australia. For a list of games check out this Australian site.


    • “Surviving the Outback” a survival course, “How to Throw a Boomerang”, “Playing the Didgeradoo”, “Australian Wildlife”, Cooking Aussie Favorites”, a workshop on cultural differences, etc. are some suggestions. Are these the kind of workshops you are talking about?
