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.
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.
- 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
- One Word Stories
- Sock puppets
- Decorated frames
- Flip book Animation
- Stop Action Animation
- Group camp scrapbook – have each girl make one page with photos she took
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
