You Belong In Pictures

A Winter Camp theme for Guides

Depending on which activities you ran this theme could work well for the Performing Arts, Picture This and/or Singing badges.


You can decorate with Movie posters or some of the posters from Lights, Camera, Action.  Make a marquee for each door with the names of the girls sleeping there.

Outdoor Activities

Go on a photo hike – Have each girl bring a camera with her to camp.  Take a hike around your site stopping where there are interesting things to take photos of.  You can give the girls tips on taking the best photos.  Don’t forget to include: natural, landscape, action and portrait shots.

Indoor Activities

  • Watch a film: You could show an old silent film like The Golden Eaglet or a newer popular film
  • Have a karaoke party
  • Skits or puppet shows



Thoughts for the Day

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams

“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”
― Abraham Lincoln

“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” ~ Steven Furtick
