Camplified is gearing up to kick off their 2014 summer tour this Sunday!
The Camplified experience is not just about a rock concert but an opportunity to have campers and bands interacting with one another in a more intimate and informal setting that allows for everyone to get acquainted, be themselves and partake in activities that encourage communication and high level energy. Throughout the day,campers will participate in the many exciting activities that Camplified has to offer with the bands. The day culminates with a private rock concert on camp property featuring these bands (typically 3 or 4 acts) on the verge of becoming breakout performers. An insider’s view of Camplified at summer camp:
BRANDED ACTIVITIES FOR CAMPERS
Day Camps/Activities (Approx 9AM to 11:30AM)
Resident Camps/Activities (Approx 2PM to 5PM)
1st activity: Scholastic (Ages 7 to 12)
Wings of Fire
An interactive scavenger hunt. We will split the bunks into five teams to that will represent the five dragon tribes provided on tattoo sheets supplied by us. Bunks split up around property will have to find a member of the other four tribes. Once a team is formed of five original dragons they will make their way back to the Scholastic tent. Winning team will be rewarded.
As aspects of this book have to do with personality, character and skill sets of the mice, we will set up a game whereby campers, utilizing clues will need to identify which counselor/staff member is being described. Campers will be challenged to hunt down tips through other counselors and staff members to find the correct counselor/staff member that represents a specific persona. The counselor will have a lanyard around his/her neck with a pass on it, hidden under their shirt, identifying the counselor as that persona (ie. Comedic counselor, athletic counselor, basketball specialist/counselor) Clue example – this counselor/staff member is always bouncing a ball, doing stretches, has a whistle etc. This counselor would have a tag that states basketball coach. First team to grab X amount of tags, heads back to the station where the game started and rewarded.
Campers would have photos of each of the character mice in the book. Campers by teams would go on a mouse hunt to locate all the mice based on clues. When all mice are collected, the teams will come back to the start of the hunt (back to the pop up tent). The team who collects the most mice will be declared winners. If we choose to not put plastic mice around property, we can put balloons with the characters printed on them, having campers collect the most balloons featuring a variety of characters. The clues can also prove to be a bit challenging just like the challenges faced in the books.
Relay Races- 5 Teams of 5 campers will compete in a quick series of fairy tale-related challenges for a “fairy tale field day.” The team that finishes first wins! Each team should have their own “course” laid out with camp admins to assist. The game station shall be laid out around the Scholastic tent with cones.
Station 1: Snow White. Balance an apple on your head as you race to the next station. Start over if it falls!
Station 2: Sleeping Beauty. Camper must get into a sleeping bag, zip it all the way up and have his or her other four teammates carry them to the next station.
Station 3: Rapunzel- all campers on the team must make a human chain ( when the chain is formed, the last camper must run to the front of the chain and so on) until the 3rd camper reaches the next cone where they must yell “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let down your hair!”
Station 4: Cinderella- hopping one foot, camper must weave between 5 smaller cones to reach the next station.
Station 5: The Little Mermaid- This is the last station. Between the last cone and the Scholastic tent there will be two buckets. The bucket at the tent will be empty, while the one at the last cone will be filled with water and have a sponge inside. The last camper must fill soak the sponge and run between the two buckets until the second bucket’s water reaches a certain line.
Utilizing a comic story starter provided by Scholastic, campers will have a chance to complete the comic at a designated station.
In a similar fashion to the quest that occurs in the graphic novel, campers will participate in a multi-layered scavenger hunt that will take place throughout the camp property. Starting at the Scholastic tent, campers in teams of 3-5 will be given an “Amulet”. On the back of the Amulet there will be a single clue that will lead the teams around property to a multitude of locations where they will find the rest of the clues leading them to the end. The campers that reach the end first will receive a reward.
Lifesize canvas with multi-colored markers provided. Campers will take turns having a chance to quote or illustrate a standout memory on the sheet involving camp experiences, something that represents an unforgettable moment at camp from happy to funny to embarrassing. It will be done anonymously and at the end, the campers together will have a canvas of quotes and memories created by them.
