We do a schedule every year, but stay flexible. The timing is always off and we change around the order of things, but try to at least start the projects. 

We have songbooks that we print up each year.  Each kid needs their own, even if they can't read, and we have to find the page number. If you can get songs with a 'bad' word here or there, so much the better!
A-Rootie-Choot ( I don't know how you spell it)
We had a bike rodeo because we had one a few years ago, and the kids wanted another one.  This involves streamers and the Middle School track… and getting one kid to learn to ride his bike!
Lunch was made by the lunch committee and the afternoon snack was the ever popular Poop on Ice. 

Crafting… Painting, Dream Catchers, Paperclip Jewelry...

 Decorating our camp buckets...
Pay no attention to Addie's face, I tell her that someday she's going to regret all the pics with that frown!
The theme this year is Explorers.  We use the theme for the basis of the t-shirts.  We planned on making a trail of small footprints on the back of the shirts in a trail, but the kids wanted to put their own footprints/feetprint? on the back of the shirt.
 Of course there were hijinks...
After the pics were taken, they turned the P in BPA to a R.  Now that's wild!

And we finished up with more camp songs.
