  • I worked at a camp last summer that was based on Harry Potter it was called "Care of Magical Creatures Camp" not that you need to do a wizzard theamed camp, but it was so much fun basing a camp on fairy tales and magic, the kids made fairy circles, we made juice in a couldron, a reptile lady came in with snakes (because they are related to dragons don't you know) we made wands and we had a blast. There are a ton of hit books and movies I bet you could come up with something easily that would be fun. I know the carnival theam is big right now, how fun would that be? You could do pop corn and have games, maybe get a magician one of the days??
