2019 Summer Camp Themes
Each year, camp selects themes for each week of summer. We are happy to announce this year’s themes:
Session 1: Epic Week-Our first week of summer starts with a bang. Big games, live music and more.
Session 2: Superhero-Bring your favorite superhero gear and join us in saving the world
Session 3: Halloween-Trick or treating in your costume can be expected during Halloween Week and a return of our Tree Haunted House
Session 4: Animal Craze-It’s a zoo here at Flat Rock with campers dressing as animals and bringing their favorite stuffed ones.
Session 5: International-We celebrate American Independence and celebrate the cultures of our international staff. This is also the week we have color wars at camp. During Color Wars, campers are divided into four teams- blue, red, yellow, or green– where they compete in contests, games, and relay races for points awarded from our official judges.
Session 6: Pirates-Arrrrrhhhhh matey! Bring yer best pirate gear and watch your favorite counselor walk the plank
Session 7: Christmas-Celebrate Christmas in July, complete with lights, trees and a visit from Santa!
Session 8: Performing Arts-Bring your dancing shoes and voices to our specialty week. This week has more performing arts clinics than any other and campers will have the chance to perform their work at the closing campfire.
Session 9: Survival-Learn to build fires, live outdoors and sleep under the starts. Campers this week have extra chances to hone their outdoor skills.
During the week, the theme is used to tie activities together. Campers should pack a few things related to the theme that they can use throughout the week, or come prepared to join in specialty programming. For example, for Halloween Week a costume, or for Christmas week some holiday PJs, and Survival week you can pack camouflage. These can all be things you can find at home. If you do not have items for the theme, don’t worry. All activities include supplies to make sure every camper can participate.
