(Your State) Adventures

Since I live in California my 5 suggestions will be based on the theme – California Adventures

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

  1. Play the camp wide game Gold Rush.
  2. The state animal is the Grizzly Bear. Have a counselor dress up in a bear costume and hide somewhere in or near camp. Then have a hunt for the California Grizzly Bear.
  3. Hold a field trip to the beach. Offer surfing lessons.
  4. Make it a travel camp and discover the state. In California you might visit orange fields, the Golden Gate Bridge, any beach, Hollywood, Venice, Disneyland and Sea World.
  5. There is a strong Mexican influence in California so have a few meals highlight some good Mexican food.
