Camp Meal Themes
Food is an integral part of any camp. Meal time is when the whole camp can come together to recount stories of the day, engage in sing-along songs, or brainstorm camp skit ideas for that night’s campfire. Campers and counselors can bond at meal time – whether a cabin group sits together, or the entire camp mixes and matches at each table, meal time can allow new friendships to form and community to build. Meal time is also a great time to sing themed food songs. Maybe you sing the camp song, “Yeah Toast” at breakfast, or maybe you sing “peanut butter reeses cup” at lunch time. No matter what, we’re always having fun when food is involved.
Whether your camp is a weeklong or an entire summer long, you will want to add some diversity to your daily meals. We all like routine, but themed meals can be fun, easy, and will certainly add a flavor to your camp session (pun intended…). From pajama breakfast to medieval feast dinner, from birthday lunch to camp counselor switch dinner, there are a ton of ideas you can incorporate into your next camp session.
