The “Hunger Games” books and movie are extremely popular with teens and pre-teens.
So naturally summer camps are thinking about how to incorporate “Hunger Games” themes and activities into their programming.
There is, of course, some concern that the content is too violent. But with some adaptation, you can bring the excitement and pageantry to your camp.
Curt “Moose” Jackson of Summer Camp Program Director has put some thought into a “Hunger Games”-themed camp, and shares his ideas on his blog: http://bit.ly/ITw3vL
Obviously, no one is suggesting that campers battle it out to the death. But there are non-violent ways to earn points and come away with a final winner: crafts, races, and, of course, archery.
A “Hunger Games” camp also opens a door to teaching survival skills, teammwork, and theater and costuming skills.
