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 Desert Oasis 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…

Desert Oasis

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

  1. I love going to the fair and filling little bottles up with layers of colored sand.
  2. I’m all about a theme that gives me a reason to make some pet rocks. Take a walk around camp and let the campers find their perfect rock. Then grap some paint or markers and some googley eyes – and voila, pet rocks.
  3. Create a hunt where the treasure is a water bottle, or a well, or the pool (every camp’s oasis).
  4. Make some cactus crafts.
  5. What do you get when you add an “s” to desert? You get dessert. Have the campers make their own ice cream.
