    So, I'm the director of our school's summer camp this year. Last year was the first year our school was open, and the summer camp wasn't very successful. (We are a PreSchool - 5th grade private Christian school.) They've asked me to run it this year - and I'm determined to make it successful! This can be a big recruitment time for our school - as we have lots of community kids interested in the summer program, that are in the public schools or other schools without summer programs. I have a lot of fun ideas planned for the kids - but need to come up with a catchy name for the camp. Last year it was called Camp Falcon (for our school mascot) but we want to re-name it this year. #1 reason is so there aren't any negative memories associated with it and #2 so it sounds more exciting!

    Which brings me to all of you fabulous folks! I've got a great line up (I think at least!) of themes:
    X-treme Science
    Proud to Be an American
    Around the World in 5 days or Celebration of Nations (need to decide what to call it)
    Furry, Scaly, Feathery – Awesome Animals!
    Camp _________’s Got Talent
    Kids in the Kitchen
    The Great Outdoors
    Let’s Go Green!
    Sports (need clever name)
    Summer of Service

    Now, I just need an awesome name for the camp. I am drawing a blank - some of the kids suggested "Kids Rule Camp" or "Kids Rock" something like that - I like the idea of that - something fun and exciting for kids - but not sure that's the right name! HELP!!!! :help:

    I love 'Summer Safari'. You could be adventuring through different themes. You could give everything a really cool jungle twist. Plus, it just rolls off the tongue. What are you doing this summer? I'm going on a Safari!

    lol Irishdave - they'd have lots to write about come the beginning of the school year! :)

    Jem - that's a good one - I'll put it on the list! We could decorate the school like a rainforest or something!

    Keep the ideas coming folks!!
