DECORATIONS
Red/blue/yellow/green streamers
Cutouts for each of the 4 houses
Platform 9 ¾ sign
Lightning bolt flags
Flying keys
Wands
Sorting hat
Broomsticks
Hogwarts acceptance letters for all of the campers
Potion bottles

SPECIAL EVENT
KKSE Triwizard tournament!!! Just like in the 4th Harry Potter, KKSE will be hosting the Triwizard tournament! This tournament will include a camp wide quidditch game, followed by a scavenger hunt, and topped off with a team relay race through a maze. The winners will receive the Triwizard’s cup, i.e. a trophy filled with golden chocolate coins. After the tournament, KKSE will end the week by watching one of the Harry Potter movies that has a suitable rating for the age group.

GUEST SPEAKER
For this week we could have a magician come in and perform a magic show for the kids! I think that the campers will really enjoy watching a few tricks and maybe learning some magic!

CRAFTS
Magic wands: metallic colored paints, gold paint, hot glue gun, hot glue, chopsticks, assorted gems, paint brushes

Golden snitch: rubber or Styrofoam balls, gold paint, gold glitter, white construction paper, hot glue, white feathers

GAMES
Medium activity – Horcrux scavenger hunt: 7 horcruxes will be hidden around the playground or some large open area. The campers will be split into groups and the team that finds the most horcruxes wins!

High activity – Quidditch: Classic game of quidditch will be played between two teams made up of kids and counselors. We will need brooms, small bats, a variety of different sized balls, a golden snitch outfit, and goals.

Low active – Pin the lightning bolt on Harry Potter: This is a wizard variation of the classic pin the tail on the donkey but with a lightning bolt for Harry Potter’s forehead.

1.Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme.
-Get harry potter balloons and put them around the site. Also gets some wands and broom sticks to put around the site. Make some posters with lightning bolts on them to put around, also you could make a sign that says Hogwarts.
2.An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success
-Harry Potter theme day. I know many kids like Harry Potter so have people dress up as the characters of the movie and the that day we can watch one of the movies. Then when the kids start to get antsy we could play a huge game of Quidditch with everyone.
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)
-A guess speaker that could come in could be if someone knows magic. Kids always love magic tricks; they would all be very excited if we were able to find someone that knew how to do some magic tricks.
4. 2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed
-Make witches hats- black construction paper, stick on letters, glitter, markers. They can be creative and color whatever they want on it.
-Make your own wand- you would need sticks, hot glue gun, paint, paint brushes, glitter if some people wanted that.
5. 3 high active/low active games specific to theme
-high activity- Quidditch game, separate in two different teams, have some broom sticks, a set of goals, and a soft ball and the object of the game would be to get the ball into the goal.
-High activity-Harry Potter relay race, if you have props of either Harry Potter, wizards or witches we would bring them in and spread them around and each team would be in a line and take turns and which ever team has the most amount of items wins the relay race.
-high activity-Wand tag, since the kids made wands you could have them get tagged by that and the only way they can become untagged would have to cast a spell on them. This could be a little dangerous.

Decorations
o We are transforming North Salisbury into the Magical Land of Hogwarts. Everything from glow in the dark balloons to magic potions, the campers will feel like they are in a Harry Potter movie. Snacks will include chocolate covered pretzel wands and fizzy spell casting soda. Another cool add-in is to incorporate a “magic” word of the day, if anyone says the word, something peculiar has to be done.
Guest Speaker: David Coleman (Voodoo Illusions)
o This site-wide event is perfect for beginning or ending to this magical week! David Coleman is a local entertainer that specializes in illusions.
Arts & Crafts
o Magic Potion and Fizzy Formula
 The kids get a chance to be a wizard for the day. They get to add their own “secret” ingredient to the potion along with a story to add more fun. Another idea for snack is for the kids to enjoy Magic Color Changing Soda
o Make-Your-Own Magician Hats
 This pretty self-explanatory craft is great for all ages and quite simple. Add-in a magic wand and the campers have a whole outfit to sport for the entire week!
Games
o Magic Carpet Ride
 The campers will all be seated on a large carpet together with a large projector showing a realistic journey!
o Magician Tag
 This game is a fun twist on the familiar game tag! The camper who is “it” will be the magician (holding the magician wand) with the ability to cast a spell (tag) the other players in the game. Once a player has been tagged, they must sit on the floor. A fellow player who is not the magician may cast [/b]an opposing spell upon a person who is sitting and allow them to be mobile again. This is a high-active game.
o Magic Scavenger Hunt
 Several trivia themed clues will be hidden around the classroom or gym. Each team will have an opportunity to find each clue, the team that finds the most clues at the end will receive a prize. This is a low-active game.

1. Decorations: Flags with lightning bolt on them, balloons, 9 3/4 platfrom, trunks, snitches hanging from the ceiling, posters of characters and quotes from the books posted on the walls. Have different corners of the room set up into the different Houses and decorate them accordingly.
2. Special Event: "Dueling Houses" On Friday, have campers compete against each other in different magical events. At the beginning of the week, have a "sorting hat" ceremony, where each child randomly picks a piece of paper out of a magicians hat; this becomes their house for that week and their team for the competition. Have the houses create their own spells and act them out for all of camp, participate in the relay race (below), play Quidditch and more! Have campers dress up as a Wizard if they so choose for the competition. At the end of the day, play one of the Harry Potter movies (whichever is age appropriate, pending parent approval) and have "magical" snacks (pretzel rod wands, and possibly make butterbeer with cream soda, cream and butterscotch sauce)
3. Guest Speaker:Magic Show! Have a local magician perform a wizard/Harry Potter themed show for the campers OR I'm pretty sure people at SU play Quidditch on a fairly regular basis around campus, so have one of the players come in and "train" the campers in the sport.
4. Arts and Crafts:
-Make your own wand: Have kids make their own wand using an empty paper towel roll or sticks. Have kids paint and decorate their wands in whatever way they choose (use glitter, feathers, foam stickers, string, etc).
-"Fizzy Magic Potion": Have the campers complete this experiment outside on pavement to avoid major messes indoors! Have a clear cup for each camper and fill it halfway with vinegar. Have them add soap and a few drops of food dye to the cup and stir. Have them add one spoonful of the "secret ingredient" (baking soda) to the cup and watch the cup overflow with fizz!
5. Games:
-Quidditch:have the campers split into two teams. Riding on their broomsticks, the kids would aim to get a softball/tennis ball into the opposing teams goal. (high active)
-Harry Potter Relay Race: break the kids into groups by their assigned houses, and have them compete in a magical relay (ride a broomstick from one spot to another, put on a cloak and hat cast a spell then take it off, etc). (high active)
- "Four Houses": Spinoff of four corners. Since the room will be decorated based on the houses, have a person be "it" sitting in a chair in the middle of the room, eyes closed/covered. The campers will choose a corner of the room to stand in, thus choosing a house. The "it" person will say the name of one of the houses and whoever is standing in that corner is out. Continue until you have one winner (or a top four if is is taking too long). (low active)

1. Banners with the house names, witch and wizard hats, signs of 9 3/4, broomsticks, Harry Potter books, cobwebs, spiders, magic wands, golden snitches, potions, black cauldron.
2. Battle of the Houses: At the beginning of the week hold a “Sorting Hat” ceremony, just like the movie, a house will be randomly drawn out of a hat and will be announced to the whole camp. Throughout the week campers will work with their house to create a magic trick to show to the camp. Then they will compete in various types of relay races and a game of Quidditch.
3. Guest speaker: contact a local magician to see if they would be willing to do a magic show for the campers.
4. Golden Snitch- Small Styrofoam balls, yellow paint, gold glitter, yellow foam paper, hot glue gun, paint brushes. Cut out wing shapes on the yellow foam paper, campers can paint the Styrofoam balls and decorate them, then glue the wings onto the ball to complete the golden snitch.
Harry Potter eyeglasses- 4 black pipe cleaners. Campers will create eyeglasses just like Harry.
5. Giants wizards and Elves (high active)- Split group up into 2 teams, designate 2 safety zones, one on each teams side, and designate a middle area. Each team then gets in a huddle and picks what they want to be as a team, a giant, a wizard or an elf.
Giants put their hands up over their heads, wizards put their hands our straight in front of them wiggling their fingers, and elves make pointy ears on their head with their pointer fingers. Once the teams have decided their character they want to be, they come up to the center spot and line up face to face, then on a count of 3, everyone does whatever action their team picked. Giants beat elves, elves beat wizards and wizards beat giants, so the team that beats the winning team chases the other and tries to tag as many members on the other team as possible before they reach the safety zone. The members from the team that get tagged become a part of the other team. Repeat until all players are on one side.


Harry Potter: Who am I? (Low active) give each player a piece of paper with a Harry Potter character on it and tape it to their back. They must then go around to the other players asking questions to figure out what character they have been given.

Muggles Quidditch (high active) Broom sticks, or paper towel tubes (if playing inside), two soccer goals, a foam ball or a balloon. Campers will ride their broom sticks while they pick up the ball and throw it down the field toward their goal. If playing inside students can use the paper towel tubes and hit the ball with the paper towel tubes in attempt to get the ball in their goal.

DESCRIPTION: Muggles Beware! The Sorting Hat is assigning kids to Hogwarts Houses! Will you be in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin? Campers will pass through the Platform 9 ¾ entrance into a thrilling experience where they will test their skills at Quidditch, cast magical spells, and create their very own witchcraft and wizardry belongings. Parents look out! Your campers will solemnly swear that they are up to no good!

1. Decorations

For this I would decorate the camp like the way they had the great hall set up in Harry Potter. Each of the lunch tables would be decorated based on the house they are. I would also have posters of the characters from the movies on the walls. I would have broom sticks. I would also have some stuffed or cut out owls.

2. Special Event

I would have a sorting hat event that would lead into a field day that would have four teams to represent the four houses. The events in the field day would revolve around things like creating Potions, quidditch, and other Harry Potter themed games. If your team won an event you would be given a point and by the end of the day the team with the most points wins.

3. Guest Speaker

I would see if one of the members of the Salisbury Quidditch team would come and talk to the kids about how the game is played and why they like Harry Potter and playing the sport.

4. Arts and Crafts

Wand Making: a wooden stick, black or brown paint, a hot glue gun, and paint brushes
Golden Snitch: Styrofoam balls, yellow tissue paper, craft foam, glitter, and glue

5. Games

Quidditch: this would be a high active game. You would need two soft dodgeballs, two volleyballs, and 6 hoola hoops. The kids would all have brooms as well and they would try to get the volleyballs through the hoops. The team who gets the most points and finds the golden snitch (which would be hidden) wins.

Harry Potter Trivia: This would be a low-active game and test the kids knowledge of Harry Potter.

Berti Bott's Flavor Bean Tasting Contest: this would also be low-active and the kids would have to guess the flavor of the jelly bean they ate.

1. Have the symbols for the different houses hanging up.
Platform 9 3/4 sign hanging up
Diagon Alley sign and shop signs
-With Delmar bucks we can set up different shops for the students to go to on the first day where we can have a bank to get the money "does Mr. Harry Potter have his key?" beware of the sorcerers stone.
- Have a wand store. I made wands for one of my crafts, so the counselors can make them for the kids over the weekend since it involves hot glue and we can act out the movie and try to find the wand that "chooses the wizard"

We can label one of the doors in the room as the chamber of secrets or the closet where Harry hid

2. For a special event we can have a Quidditch tournament

3. We can have someone dressed as a Harry Potter character come in and act like their character from the movie.

4. Wands- wood dowels, hot glue, brown/black paint, and semi-gloss clear paint
Harry Potter Hats/Sorting hat- Construction paper, felt, glue, stapler
Hidden compartments- book, scissors, glue

5. Quidditch (High Active)

11 Re: Training #7 Homework 2 on June 6th 2014, 12:01 pm

1. Each corner of the room could be set up for a different house. We would need to use Red, Green, Blue, and Gold streamers, balloons, and other materials to crate each section. We could also use stuffed owls, wands, and other thing to help create the environment. The check-in table could be set up to look like Platform 9 ¾.

2. A special event for this week could be a “House Cup Challenge” where each house would earn points in team games, and by exhibiting positive behaviors, and can lose points by exhibiting negative behaviors. At the end of the week, the house with the most points could be rewarded with a special treat.

3. I think an author would be a good speaker for this week. They could talk about how they come up with stories, and the writing process.

4. Golden Snitches: Styrofoam balls (small/medium), white cardstock, metallic gold paint, glue. The campers paint the ball gold, then get out snitch wings from cardstock. Glue the wings to the ball, and you have your own golden snitch!

Wands: wooden craft sticks, brown paint, glitter, sequence, ribbon. The campers could create their own magical wand!

Puppets: felt, google eyes, yarn, glue. The campers could make a puppet of their favorite Harry Potter character.

5. Quidditch: High active, the campers are divided into teams to play this Harry Potter sport.

Broom Races: High Active, the campers can race each other on “broomsticks” in a relay style game.

- The big thing to do at hogwarts is to go to hogsmead so set up a simulation with harry potter themed foods and booths for the kids to go around and try.
