Camp Themes

All themes are general and will be suited to fit each age group accordingly. Camp activities listed are approximate.

Session 1 (June 12-16) Shipwrecked
Ahoy Matey! Climb aboard our pirate ship and join our crazy crew as we start this summer off! In this exciting first week of camp, we’ll be sailing the Seven Seas in search of lost treasure! This week will be packed with all sorts of activities like making pirate costumes and decorating our own treasure boxes, and we will finish off with an epic treasure hunt that will leave our little pirates with treasures of their own. Careful, if you don’t listen to our counselors, you may need to walk the plank!

Session 2 (June 19-23) Game Show Mania
Are you smarter than a… Marinwood camper? Find out this week as we bring game shows and board games to life! Campers will become part of life-sized versions of their favorite boardgames and participate as contestants on game shows like Jeopardy and Camper Feud. This week is one packed with games, competitions, and challenges of all kinds, so get your game face on and put your best foot forward!

Session 3 (June 26- 30) Fairytales and Fantasy
This week we find ourselves as characters in our favorite storybooks and legends! The magic at Marinwood can be felt as wizards, dragons, and elves join us at camp this week. Campers will get to hunt for fairies in the enchanted forest and solve riddles to avoid the troll under the Miler Creek bridge, and we’ll get to share our favorite stories with our fellow campers. This week is full of imagination and fantasy, so prepare to feel the magic!

Session 4 (July 3-7) Star Spangled Spectacular
Oh say can you see… all the fun we’ll be having this week celebrating the USA! We’ll be showing off our reds, whites, and blues all week while we compete in potato sack races, tug o’ war, and water balloon baseball games. We’ll end the patriotic celebration on Friday with an all-American blow out including bounce houses, snow cones, and hot dogs galore.

Session 5 (July 10-14) Animal Planet
Welcome to Marinwood’s Animal Kingdom! This week, campers will discover all of the wildlife around us on our safari search around camp. Campers will then get to see animals we would never see around Marinwood in an animal show, where we will get a visit from all kinds of exotic creatures. Get ready to see paws, tails, and scales everywhere you look!

Session 6 (July 17-21) Crazy Camp Carnival
Grab your tickets, the carnival is back in town! This week campers get to experience a whole week at the carnival, practicing their skills at carnival tricks like juggling and face painting. All of the fun will come together at the end of the week at our annual Camp Carnival, which will be full of games, prizes, costumes, and cotton candy!

Session 7 (July 24-28) Marinwood’s Got Talent|
Quick to center stage! All week-long campers will get to showcase all of their amazing talents, from showing off their singing and dancing abilities, to whipping out some cartwheels, or even performing a scene from their favorite play. At the end of the week, these skills will be showcased in a talent show where we can all cheer each other on while putting on an impressive show!

Session 8 (July 31- August 4) Decades, Discos, and Dinosaurs
This week we are traveling back in time for an adventure through the decades! Campers may get to hunt for dinosaur eggs, show off their dance moves at the disco, or try their hand at jousting in a medieval tournament. Bring on the tie-dye and flower power this week while we travel through time and party in the past!

Session 9 (August 7-11) Tropical Oasis? No-way-sis!
We’re finishing out the summer on a tropical island where we’re going to soak up the last bits of sun and fun from our crazy summer! This week will be spent doing limbo contests, hula hooping with friends, and swimming like mermaids in the pool. We will play all of our favorite games that we learned over the summer and spend one last week will all the new friends we made, and camp will come to a close with our favorite treat to cool us down in the heat: sno-cones!
