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…

Knights and Princesses

Below are five suggestions. What are yours? Leave your ideas in the comments area below.

  1. Send the knights on a quest to find Merlin, Excalibur or a dragon egg.
  2. Play King or Queen Says (instead of Simon Says).
  3. Teach campers how to make swords out of balloons. If your really good you can make a balloon dragon.
  4. Have a Jester contest where campers (or staff) wear a jester’s hat and go in front of the King and Queen to perform magic, juggling or comedy act.
  5. Have a Masquerade Ball. Campers and staff all where masks and campers are taught traditional dances (or silly Knight and Princess dances from Wonderland).
