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…

Wind and Sea

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

  1. Have the campers try different types of fishing; pole, net, spear, deep sea, etc.
  2. Sailing, sailing and more sailing.
  3. Build a raft competition. Start with 15 minutes of planning.
  4. Poop Deck is one of my favorite games – and it’s perfect for this theme. Creat three areas/squares large enough for the whole group that is playing. The middle area is the “Main Deck”. The other two areas are either the “poop Deck” or the “Quarter Deck”. Everyone starts in the main deck. The leader calls out either “poop deck” or “quarter deck”. Everyone rushes to the appropriate deck. The last person to step across the line is out of the game. Play continues until only the winner remains. If the leader calls out the deck on which everyone is standing, anyone who steps across the line is out.
  5. Have a knot tying class.
