Individuals preparing lessons for a summer camp can create a summer reading program with quizzes and interactive activities such as plays or musical skits related to the theme of the chosen book. Lesson plans can also include scavenger hunts throughout wooded areas to find types of trees or bugs.
Summer camp instructors can take advantage of the hot weather by creating lesson plans that revolve around water activities such as swimming lessons and water safety. Students can estimate the speed of a water slide and time one another while swimming in pools and lakes at a camp facility. Summer camp lesson plans can also include cooking lessons that result in home-cooked meals by camp participants.
