Camp Awards

It is often good fun to hand out awards to your campers at the end of a camp.  This is a little easier to do at a smaller camp or a longer (ie week long) camp when it is a little easier to observe all the girls.  Although it is a good idea to have a list of award ideas before you go to camp, it is best to stay flexible.  For example, I once saw a girl awarded a “night nurse” award for following a roommate who was sleep walking around the building to make sure she didn’t trip over something.  Awards can be themed to your camp or more generic.  If you look online it is easy to find candy bar themed awards but I would stick to certificates or small hat crafts as awards.  The trick is to catch the girls being good.  When possible you want to recognize each girl for something she did that was exceptional, which can be harder for the quiet girls that exist in each unit.

Here are some ideas:

  • Tidy camper
  • Positive camper
  • Accident magnet (for the most bumps and bruises)
  • Loudest laugh
  • Busy Beaver
  • Book Worm
  • Peacemaker
  • Early Bird
  • Night Owl
  • Persistent Award  (for the girl who was homesick but stayed at camp anyways)
  • etc.
