Yesterday, on Facebook, Karla asked me for some suggestions for a Medieval Times Camp. I recommended that she check out the Knights and Princesses post. I also have some other ideas…

  • Joust with fun noodles.
  • Each cabin group creates a castle with boxes, foam or any other objects you can find.
  • The groups now try to demolish the other castles with water balloon slingshots, paintballs, Frisbees or any other projectile.
  • If you are feeling like an engineering project then have the groups build small castles and small catapults to destroy the castles.
  • Instead of playing Bat and Moth, make it Dragon and Knight.
  • The compass was invented during the Medieval times. Create a fun orienteering course.
  • Have you heard of Merlin? Teach some magic.
  • Serve huge turkey legs for lunch or dinner.
  • Jesters juggle. Teach juggling.
  • Crown a king and queen of the day.
  • Have morning announcements read from a scroll.
  • Capture the Flag is now Capture the Crown. Get a couple of cheap crowns from a party store.
  • Check out these crafts.
  • Gather your knights and go on a Black Wizard hunt.
  • Gather the towns people (campers) and search for the King’s treasure.
  • Have groups create their own coat of arms.
  • Learn sword play for the stage. Bring in a sword expert or stuntman.
  • Have a falcon handler visit camp.
  • Use hour glasses and sundials to keep time.
  • Go over one value of the Knight’s Code every morning.

All for one and one for all!
