American Summer Camp theme
« on: August 03, 2018, 02:39:18 pm »
Hey everyone,

My English summer camp my theme was the "American summer camp experience". I wanted my kids to get a feel of what it would be like if they attended a summer camp in America. My original inspiration came from a Camp Wakanda summer camp posted by schuettl. I edited some materials and have added my own. I've incorporated typical classroom English activities and added in some games that have nothing to do with English and some crafts/cultural experiences. We also watched the 1998 Parent Trap movie, about 40 minutes each day with some time built in to go over the worksheet questions.

My students loved this camp so much and I had fun as well

My schedule was as follows...

5 Days, 4 classes a day.
40 minutes~ combined 5th/6th grade
40 minutes~ combined 3rd/4th grade
40 minutes~ all grades
40 minutes~ all grades

There are alot of files, so I'll upload each Day together starting with DAY 1

I used this for my summer camp this year! Thanks for the inspiration. I made this cute intro video to go with it to spark interest

I think if you really want to have the kids get a true feel of current American summer camp, try sticking them in cages and giving them foil blankets.  Also for added fun withhold bathroom breaks and food.   :wink:
