THEME and DETAILS
Your Group color and group name is already assigned before camp as a country participating in olympics;
On the first day of crafts, you will design a Group flag. All the materials will be provided. But, you need to have some creative ideas and your entire group must participate. (if you are a counselor for the two youngest groups please come up with some good ideas beforehand, since the youngest kids are usually very indecisive…lol)
Group beat/song/rhyme: you’ll need to create a beat/song/rhyme for your group. This should be a short, catchy tune. You can use clapping, stomping, beat-boxing, etc. If you have a drum, tambourine or another auxiliary instrument, bring it along!
Throughout the first 2 days you will be presenting in evening services, your group will have 2 minutes to present your name, flag, and beat. You will be judged for creativity and participation. This is a great opportunity to score lots of points for your group!
