Thanks for all the ideas. I have used and adapted some of the powerpoints that I have found on here. They may/may not be useful for anyone else. My camps were 1.5 hours long for 3rd grade and then i used the same lesson for 4th grade.

Everyday i played different icebreaker games I found that some days I had over/under estimated my time so was always prepared with games to fill the time.

I have attached some of the materials that I have used as well.

Day 1 - Introductions to each other, classroom rules and the topic of around the world. Activities*** icebreaker game, vocabulary sheet (to be added to over the course of the week), four corners game, colouring continents map and making a passport.

Day 2 - Korea and Australia
Activities*** I used this website for worksheets
http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/free_printables.htm

Day 3 - Africa
Activities*** http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/africa/

Day 4 - continued and finished crafts from yesterday (only 1.5. hour lessons)

Day 5 - England + English birthday party + games
Activities****** Pass the parcel, pin the tail on the donkey, Winner gets to blow out the candles on the birthday cake,  watched Mr Bean whilst eating party food.

WOW well done. Definitely like some of the activities and may use them with a few alterations. :)
Your lesson plans are also impeccably detailed, your school is definitely lucky to have you.

Also, if anyone has a way to make or buy a pinata I strongly suggest doing so because my kids LOVED the video on pinatas!

What video did you use?

The youtube video should be linked in my powerpoint. For the slide on pinatas just click on the picture. If not, I don't remember the exact video I just searched pinata in youtube I think. Sorry! Hope this helps!

Thank you to all the previous posters; your materials are fantastic!

I did this camp with a mixed group of 3, 4, and 5th graders, 90 minutes a day for four days.  I put a lot of work into this camp, and I hope other teachers can use these resources.

I encourage anyone doing a Exploring the World camp to check out WorldTour_Notes. It has links to videos, instructions for passport stamps and a pinata, and outlines of each day.

Most helpful to other teachers, I think, is the PPT workbook. Some of the pages are lifted from Waygook, some from other websites, and some I made myself. You'll find it all to be at a very low level.

The Day 2 through 4 power points are just my versions of the other power points posted here. Maybe you'll like them more, maybe you won't, but I hope that there are a few things at least you can steal off them.

Thanks for everything, Sheila! I know what camp I'll be doing next week!  :D

Edited to add a cryptograms worksheet I created for medium-level middle school students.
The answers are:
1. There are 53 countries in Africa.
2. The Nile is the longest river in the world.
3. The Sahara is such a big desert!
4. Africa has many animals like lions and giraffes.

All of these sentences are in the powerpoint from the beginning of the class.

I used the animaniacs video with my middle-schoolers during summer camp. Showed the video, then told them to write down as many countries as they can. And then showed the video again.

Was hilarious to see them writing down frantically

Where I live book

Go through the ppt first to discuss geography a bit in English. Next, have students create their own book about where they live, going from very general (the Earth) to specific (their address).

Chung Kayguri and Inuit games lessons for world fravel camp thing
« Reply #110 on: April 08, 2011, 10:42:53 PM »
had to have own material for a structured winter camp (science, reading comp., arts and crafts., games...), and these two went well with a mixed level grade 4 class

Used the Simpsons game to test their reading comprehension....

*not sure if the hockey vids will work for the Inuit games PPT, but used those to discuss a bit of Canadian culture before getting them to compete

vid for Chung Kayguri intro

That's a great camp plan!  I'm going to use some elements of 'Around the World' with my camp.  The PPT questions weren't too tough?  Pretty much evrything I submit to my co teacher for 3rd grade is always too tough she says.

Around the World camp
« Reply #115 on: June 23, 2011, 12:45:01 PM »
I used these materials for Winter camp and it went really well. The focus is on the different continents. I got the continent ppts from the "Around the world camp" thread and added games. The kids got a stamp in their passport for a country from each continent we studied. On the last day, the kids with all the stamps in their passports got a cookie. This was for Grade 3-4 mixed level english camp. I had the kids for 3 periods a day for 5 days.

I've been thinking about doing this for my Summer Camp as well.  Thanks for the super awesome ideas!  I've been trying to think of a movie for the kids to watch at the end.  I was thinking something cute, animated, and recent, like Madagascar or Up.

Also, aybe it's just my computer, but about half of the ppts weren't able to be uploaded.  Any idea why?  I'm not very computer savvy.
"-Isms in my opinion are not good.  A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself.  I quote John Lennon, 'I don't believe in Beatles.  I just believe in me.'  A good point there.  After all, he was the walrus.  I could be the walrus, I'd still have to bum rides off of people."

Hmm no idea. I just tried and was able to download all of the ones I tried.

As far as movies, you could try Gnomeo and Juliet, it's new and apparently a hit with the kids.
