DECORATIONS
Red/blue/yellow/green/black streamers
Giant sheet banner for Westside
Inspirational posters that say things like #1, you can do it!, go team!
Little podiums for ‘award ceremony’
Giant torch
Start line
Gold/silver/bronze medals
Olympics logo
Olympic colored garlands

SPECIAL EVENT
Before the camp vs. camp big games we could have our own preliminary site games where all the kids get to compete to be on different teams. We could also watch an inspirational sports movie to get the kids into the spirit of sportsmanship and teamwork, something like Space Jam would be fun! Also to make sure that team spirit is high we could spend a day making banners and posters for our teams in order to show our site pride!!

GUEST SPEAKER
It would be fun to get a coach from the university to come talk to the kids about sportsmanship. Sometimes things get a little competitive but in the end it’s all about having fun with friends. A coach would be able to give a good little pep talk to the kids about how it takes more than one kid to make a solid team and everyone needs to work together.

CRAFTS
Foam finger: construction paper, markers, stapler staples, glue, glitter. This could be for the kids that don’t necessarily want to compete but that still want to cheer on their teammates!

Olympic torches: paper plates, toilet paper role, gold paint, orange/yellow/red tissue paper, glue, scissors

Olympic ring art: red/blue/green/yellow/black paint, white construction paper, different sized tubes

GAMES
High activity - Backyard gymnastics: Kids will compete to find out who the best gymnast of the bunch is! We would draw or lay down a white line which serves as the balance beam. The kids would then perform a variety of tricks, walking backwards, doing cartwheels, hopping on one foot, to see who can do their tricks without ‘falling’ off the ‘beam’.

Medium activity – Olympic ring bean bag toss: With 5 bean bag (red/blue/yellow/green/black of course, we would see who could get their bean bag into the highest Olympic ring (5 in the Olympic colors). The higher the ring the more points, the team with the most points wins!

High activity - European Dodge ball (European because it combines aspects of European handball, getting into the spirit of the worldly Olympics): Same rules as dodge ball except there are small hockey nets used to get goals on. They are placed on each team's side or evenly spaced apart if you play in a circle. The object of the game is to reach a certain number of goals per team by throwing a ball into the net. In addition to trying to score points, you try to get the other team's members out.
There are two ways to win:
1) Be the first team to reach the target number of points.
2) Get all of the other team's players out.

1.Providing a description of decorations you will need to ensure your space is fitting to the theme.
-Make banners for our site. You could just make the medals and put them around the site. Get some streamers of the Olympic colors; blue, yellow, black, green, and red. Also motivation quotes around the site. We could make those chains out of paper with the different colors and put them around the site. Also get a big picture of the rings from the Olympics and put that in your site.
2.An idea for a special event for the theme week and steps to ensure success
-Have a big competition game day. Where you have many different teams and you give them different countries. Play some games outside, have contests and the counselors could be the judges and then at the end see who has the most points and then whatever team comes in first would get a gold metal, second place silver, and third bronze.
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)
-You could bring in an athlete that plays a team sport and have them talk about what it is like participating in sports with other people. Since I play basketball I could talk about how it is like to have sportsmanship and how you have to be competitive but at the same time be respectful. But you could also bring in a coach to also talk about sportsmanship and how players have to be respectful to each other.
4.2 arts and crafts projects specific to theme and supplies needed
-Make your own metals- construction paper, glitter, string, markers or paint.
-Make your own torches- Construction paper, toilet paper rolls, red and yellow tissue paper, markers
5.3 high active/low active games specific to theme.
-Low activity-Ring toss, get the different color rings that make up the Olympics and then get bottles and have the kids try to through the rings on the bottles.
-high activity-Balancing beam, have a line represented as a balance beam and have judges to see who has the best tricks, you would have to be careful with this because you would have to tell them no flips.
-high activity-Obstacle course, make all different stations of different activities for the kids to do and you could make this into a competition.

1. Decorations: Banner, streamers in Olympic colors, Olympic rings posted on the wall/hanging from the ceiling, fake torches, posters of Olympic athletes and sports, motivational quotes (i.e. "You're #1, etc.), a podium to make announcements and hand out awards.
2. Special Event: Camp Wide Olympics! Since we will be at the Civic Center this week, have each site compete against one another in a few Olympic events. Have an opening ceremony where each team gets to march around the center with their banner and in uniform, and have someone or a group of kids sing the national anthem. Then compete in various events and sports, like Pool Relays at the pool on Friday, Ultimate Frisbee, Soccer, other relay races, and more. Have kids participate in the events they are interested in, and have the other kids be the cheerleaders on the sidelines!
3. Guest Speaker: Have a coach or an athlete from SU come talk to the campers about good sportsmanship. Having this reminder towards the beginning of the week should help alleviate some issues of poor sportsmanship during the Olympics.
4. Crafts:
-Jerseys: Have the campers create t-shirts or Jerseys for their site. Use the camp name and mascot, and put their name/nickname and a number on the back (if these were made at your site during Sports Week, either those same shirts can be used, or another one can be made).
-Banners, posters, noisemakers, etc: Have campers make signs and noisemakers (fill empty water bottles with some beads and decorate) to use when cheering on teammates.
-Torches: have the campers make paper torches to hold as they enter for opening ceremonies. Roll up a sheet of paper as the cone/base to hold, and cut strips of yellow, orange and red paper or tissue paper to stick out for the flame.
5. Games:
-Pool Relays: have the campers compete in pool relays at the end of the week. These can be swimming, paddling on a boogie board and more! (high active)
-Javelin Toss: Use pool noodles to make the Olympic Rings (tape or paint them accordingly) and then tape them together and then to two poles to create a structure that can be hammered into the ground (it helps to use broom handles for the base and then put pool noodles over top with the rings attached to that). Then, have campers throw a pool noodle at the rings trying to get it through, with different rings being different point values or prizes. (low active)
-"Crab Walk Scramble": instead of a traditional race, have the kids compete in a crab walk relay. This way, it is fun for everyone because crab walking (walking on hands and feet with stomach up towards the sky, head dropped back looking upside down) is challenging for most, so even the campers who don't enjoy running will have fun with this.

1. Decorations

I would have the Olympic rings displayed this week. I would also have streamers the colors of the Olympic rings on the ceiling. I would have posters of Olympic athletes and sports on the walls. I would also have an Olympic torch displayed during the week.

2. Special Event

We could have a mini Olympics held throughout the week. We could play sports that are played during the summer Olympics but simplify them if need/make some of the game safer.

3. Guest Speaker

I would have one of the athletes from SU come and talk to the kids about what it is like to play a sport and be on a team. I would also have them talk about being a team player even if they play a more individual sport.

4. Arts and Crafts

Olympic torch: red, yellow, and orange tissue paper, glue, white construction paper, and tape.
Medals: Paper plates, glue, gold cupcake holders, streamers, and tissue paper

5. Games

Volleyball: this would be a high active game
Discus throwing: low active and the kids would use Frisbees instead. The child who throws the Frisbee the furthest will win the event
Basketball: this would be a high active game

1. Decorations: A giant banner with that says Fruitland and has all of the campers names on it and maybe their handprints. Hula hoops that are the colors of the Olympic rings. Giant torch. Green, yellow, red, blue, and black streamers and balloons to represent the Olympic colors.

2. Special Event: At the beginning of the week do a "torch lighting" ceremony. Each of the sites could parade in just like they do during the opening ceremonies. Each site could do a dance or skit once everyone enters to kick off the opening of the games. At the end of the week medals could be handed out for participating and recognize a those who displayed good sportsmanship throughout the week. There could also be a closing ceremony just like in the real Olympics where the "flame" is put out and the athletes parade around one last time.

3. Guest Speaker: Possibly somebody who competes in the special Olympics or the person who organizes the Special Olympics in this community.

4. Crafts: Olympic Medals- Supplies: paper plates, glitter paint, paint brush, ribbon, scissors, tape.

Olympic rings: 5 paper plates per person, glue, blue, black, yellow, green, and red paint, paint brushes

Olympic Torches: red, orange, and yellow tissue paper. Paper towel tubes (one per camper), tinfoil, glue

5. Games: low active: Olympic Bean Bag toss-red, green, yellow, blue, and black hula hoop. Campers will be awarded a point value of 1-5 depending on the hoop that the bag lands in. Each camper will get 5 beanbags and their score will be kept on a sheet. Highest score wins.

Pool races: campers can compete against each other and the other sites in various types of races. It could be a relay race or an individual competition.

Volleyball: Sites could compete in a large game of volleyball. To make it more fun a large ball could be used so that the campers can hit it better. We could set up a double elimination tournament.

1. Have streamers with the colors of Olympic rings going across the room. Assign different tables to different Olympic categories, and have fake medals hanging on the walls.

2. I would have an Olympic field day for the kids with different games and such in Kids Klub style. We could do a water balloon toss, hula-hoop races, egg/spoon races, etc. The team with the most "medals" can either choose an activity, get free canteen, or get Delmar bucks.

3. I would have multiple athletes from the University to talk about the sports they play and discuss some of their favorite Olympians. We could also pull up some of the best Olympic videos of all time on a projector screen and watch them with the kids.

4. "Why I'm a gold medalist" - each child can get a poster board and write down their accomplishments, goals, and dreams as to why they are their own gold medalist. It would be a great way to show the kids the great qualities they have and parents love those types of crafts! We would need poster board, glue, construction paper, markers, and anything else to decorate them.

Flags- we can have the children make flags to show which team/country they represent in the Olympic games that we have for them during the Olympic field day as our special event. We will need construction paper, glue, scissors, and markers.

5. Water balloon toss (low active)
Relay Race (High active game)
Tug of War (low active)
