I'm a cub scout leader in England, and the next camp we go on happens to be on 4th July, so we thought we'd do it American themed.
Just wondering if you guys had any ideas of stuff we could do? We're planning on having a kinda cowboy and indian theme because it's the one kids will have fun with the most, but we want proper American food of the time to go with it.
We're going to try making some proper burgers and some jerky over a fire, and pankakes for breakfast. That's obviously only one proper meal and snacks though.
Also what could we do to make our campsite American like? It's in quite a wooded area in a set or plataus. One of the other leaders works as a tree surgeon and is making us a totem pole. Beyond that though I'm kinda stuck for ideas.
Game wise we're just going to do standard team games like capture the flag, but have a cowboy team and an indian team.
We'll also be doing fire lighting and a bit of absailing and stuff, but there isn't really anyway that can be thememed.
So basically any ideas to make our camp as American feeling as possible would be good. All the stuff has got to be suitable for 8-10 year old kids though.
Thanks in advance.
