Counselors get ready! Campers are taking over during Camper’s Delight! With help from Summer Escape Counselors, campers will design their own games, contests, activities and much more! Don’t miss your chance to be inspired to create your own program!

1. Decorations

For this week I would have crafts that the kids have created throughout the summer as decorations. I would also have bright streamers and motivational posters placed throughout the camp.

2. Special Event

We could have a vote on the special event for this week that the kids could pick. We could have a choice between a water day, a picnic, or a field day and the campers could vote on which one they want and whichever one gets the most votes will be the special event for the week.

3. Guest Speaker

We could bring in a guidance counselor from a local school so that they can talk about the importance of being yourself and not putting other people down.

4. Arts and Crafts

Hand print art: paper and paint
A favorite Craft: we could ask the kids what their favorite crafts were so far and do a spin off of them

5. Games

Kickball: high active
Capture the Flag: high active
Tag: this would be high active and could be played in many different forms like freeze tag or pointer tag

DECORATIONS
Arts and crafts made by the kids throughout the summer
Giant KKSE banner made by kids and counselors
Specific site banner made by the kids with handprints from each child and counselor
Brightly colored streamers and balloons
Any other decorations the kids come up with

SPECIAL EVENT
After a summer run by the counselors, it’s time for the campers to call the shots! The kids can pick and the vote on a few fun ideas for a special event. This might be something like a water day or a special walking field trip, it’s all up to the kids as long as it’s within our ability to pull it off.

GUEST SPEAKER
I think it would be fun to have Mr. Ross, Katie or Cortney come in and talk to the kids about what they do and tell them everything they know about summer camp! They kids would be able to ask questions and give feedback about their experience. If the kids came up with another guest speaker we could look into and see what we could do!

CRAFTS
Puzzle piece picture frames: Popsicle sticks, hot glue gun, hot glue sticks, puzzles pieces, assorted paint colors, paint brushes. These could be used to put a picture of the kid’s favorite memory from KKSE.

Macramé friendship bracelets: assorted colors of thread, beads, jewels, tape, cardboard

GAMES
We can have the kids vote on their favorite games from the summer but here a few ideas!

Low activity - 1-2-3-Look: Everyone closes their eyes and lowers their heads, the leader calls out 1-2-3-Look! As the leader calls "look," the campers look up at one specific person. If that person is looking back at him/her, both players are out. If that person is looking at a different person, the campers put their heads back down and wait for the next call of "1-2-3 Look." Continue the game rapidly to close the circle and eventually you'll be
left with two people and the game is over.

High activity – Ninja: The rules of ninja are simple, and have only a few pivotal rules for play. In a game, players will stand in a circle, and place their hands together; the player leading the game will say "Bow to your sensei". There, the countdown begins, and each player must strike a pose. Players take turns attacking their opponents by swiping at their hands, and must freeze in place once their attack is finished. Defending players may dodge if they think they will be hit, and must also freeze once the attack is finished. If a player is hit, the hand that is hit is out but the other hand is still in. If a player misses, they must stop moving immediately. When both hands have been hit the player is out and must stand back until there is one player left. The only player left is the winner. However there have been variations to how children play the game, some exercise optional rules such as, the area that is hit, timed attacks or however the players want to change the game.

High activity – Clothes pin seven up: Give each person 7 clothes pins. On ‘go’ each person must get rid of their clothes pins by pinning them on someone
else. Only one pin per person!!

1.Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme.
-Get a big banner with kids klub logo on it to hang it around. Have different crafts that the kids have made throughout the last couple of weeks to hang around your site. Also get some streamers to make the site look fun and enjoyable.
2. An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success
-Since this week is for the kids and what they like, see what they would like to do for a special event. Either like a water day, or like have a day full of games and activities that they all enjoy to do.
3. A guest speaker for the week that would be accessible (no celebrities, unobtainable people/groups- people you can actually have a chance of booking without cost to the program)
-See if Katie or Courtney could come in and talk to them about summer camp and their experiences. Also if they were busy you could always just have the kids talk about their experiences and how they liked summer camp.
4. 2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed
-Have a vote of different crafts that they did during the summer to see which ones they enjoyed. Some new ideas could be friendship bracelets, designing kids klub t-shirts. Just some fun crafts that the kids enjoyed.
5. 3 high active/low active games specific to theme
-Same as the crafts have the kids vote on some games that were played. For example, dodge ball is always a favorite. But you could also play some spud, different tag games that they enjoyed. Also you could play some of the different games that we taught on that Saturday training.

1. Decorations: I would take a vote with our group of campers and ask if there is a theme that we have not done that they would like for us to use this week. We could then decorate based on the theme they select. We could also have a table out front for parents that display some of the different crafts the campers have completed throughout their time at camp.
2. Special Event: Camp wide talent show-Because this week is focused around the campers. We could do a talent show where they get to show all of their peers their talents. We could even have the counselors join in the fun!
3. Guest Speaker: We could have the campers tell us some people who they would like to learn more about in the community. We could help by giving them options or if they choose a theme to follow, we could find a person who would fit with the theme.
4. Arts and crafts: Splatter paint projects, make your own playdough, we could ask the kids for ideas for more projects or recreate projects we have completed throughout the summer.
5. Games: High active: Dodgeball tournament, basketball tournament, Kickball. We could also bring back some of the campers favorite games this week and turn them into a tournament where the kids would divide up into teams to play against each other

1. Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme:
Voting booth that they can use each day to vote for different things, pictures of the campers and posters that say "your choice".

2. An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success:
The campers can use the voting booth to decide a special event like game day, dress up day, picnics, field trips, etc.

3. A guest speaker for the week that would be accessible (no celebrities, unobtainable people/groups- people you can actually have a chance of booking without cost to the program):
Again, using the voting booth they can choose from a few different people. Maybe someone from a zoo, or a parent to talk about their job (like cop or firefighter)

4. 2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed:
-Decorative picture frame: Since its all about the campers we can take funny pictures of each one to put into a frame. We need a camera (disposable), foam frames, glue and foam pieces
-Your choice: a bunch of items like popsicle sticks, foam pieces, buttons, construction paper, etc.

5. 3 high active/low active games specific to theme:
The kids can vote from their 5 most popular games from previous weeks. This often would be dodgeball, kickball, or run the bases (all high active)

1. For decorations we could hang up all the crafts that the kids have done while here at summer camp to show all the work that they have done over the past weeks.

2. For a special event we could have the kids imitate their favorite counselors or play a counselor trivia game where they can earn points for their team aka being the name of their favorite counselor. They can also compete in games for their counselor team.

3. A guest speaker could be all of the counselors to talk about their lives and favorite memories as a kid and tell them about some of the things they do outside of Kids Klub as long as its appropriate.

4. We could make Kids Klub yearbooks/autograph books. We would need foam, string, paper, and decorations. The kids could sign them and write messages to each other.
We can also make bags for each of the kids (large bags) that they can decorate so after the week is over we can put all of the crafts they have made in their bags to bring home. They can be grocery paper bags or cheap duffel bags from a craft store. We would need markers, glitter, and other things to decorate them.

5. The kids can vote on their favorite games to play: kickball, dodgeball (vs. the counselors), run the bases, ghosts in the graveyard, pacman game, silent speedball, capture the flag, indian chief, obstacle courses, Titanic, etc.

1. Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme
Have posters from every week hung up since the campers will be choosing games from the previous theme weeks. Also, a huge banner where every camper can sign their name and the reason they love kids klub to hang up. 

2. An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success
Pie the Counselors! At the end of the week we can have a campers cook out with games they choose and end with putting a pie in the face of the counselor they vote on!


3. A guest speaker for the week that would be accessible (no celebrities, unobtainable people/groups- people you can actually have a chance of booking without cost to the program)
20 Questions with the Counselors. Each camper is allowed to write down a question and then the counselors will randomly draw some from a hat and answer them. This way we can choose which questions to answer. 

4. 2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed
Time for some Tie Dye - TieDye camp shirts. Using clear glue they can put any design they want on their shirt and the dye won't stick. 

Take Home Picture - Bring different things for each camper to dress up in. Jerseys, boas, sunglasses, etc then take a picture with them in front of the banner. They can take this home at the end of the week to remember all the fun they had this summer. 

5. 3 high active/low active games specific to theme

Games they liked from the other weeks, specific dodgeball games, kickball, races etc.
