YMCA Camp Flaming Arrow


Summer Camp Session Themes

Why Session Themes?

Session themes are designed to add a little individuality and excitement to each session. The themes will mainly be used on opening days, closing days and for our dances. For each theme, we encourage staff and campers to dress the part for the dance, so we have included examples of what to pack below.

Parents and Campers: there is no need to go out and buy new things— look around, see what you have (Old Halloween costumes or school spirit day items?) or plan to just dress normally!  Not everyone gets dressed up.  Also, counselors and other campers are often willing to lend out items.  Make whatever you bring fun, stress free and silly.  

Session 1: Aloha Summer (Camp Corral) 

Join us as we heat things up this summer... Hawaiian-style. Bring your leis, pirate gear, grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, and coconuts for our Hawaiian Luau week! So if you love Lilo and Stitch, Moana, or Pirates this is the week for you! 

Session 2:
Superheros (Camp Corral) 

Who do you consider a hero? Have you the power to save the world from certain destruction? Have you an outfit made of lyrca? Is your hero Superman, a soldier, a coach, a parent or a teacher? If so, then this is the session theme for you! Be sure to dress as your hero for the dance. You can also make up your own hero!

Session 3: Holiday Hullabaloo

Come all ye faithful to a week surrounded in holiday fun! Celebrate Valentine's day, Halloween, and Christmas... and who knows what else we might cook up! Bring your costume for the Halloween Monster Mash dance night!

Session 4: Animation Domination

Are you a Disney fan or a Cartoon Network fan? Do you prefer Bugs Bunny or Scooby Doo? Or are you just like us where you can't just choose one animation to love because you love them all! Join us for a week of celebrating cartoons and animations.

Session 5: Around the World

Do you want to be a world traveler? If you want to see the world, look no further than camp! This week we are going to bring all the different countries to you. From England to Mexico to China, we plan on having them all! So pick a country and pack some clothes to celebrate here at CFA! And of course Independence Day is happening this week, so don't forget to bring some Red, White and Blue to watch the fireworks show in!

Session 6:
Wizard Week

Prepare your wands, hats, capes, and broomsticks! Whether you are a fan of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Merlin, Sabrina, Dumbledore, Gandalf, or any other type of wizard or witch, this week has magical surprises in store!
Session 7:
Wild Wild West

Howdy! Throw on your boots and chaps because this week is going to be full of Western fun! Whether your inspiration for this week is Jesse and Woody, your favorite Western movie or some good ole Rodeo fun this is bound to be a fun week. Yee-Haw! 

Session 8:
Back to the Future

From Caveman to Futuristic Astronauts, there are so many eras and we want to celebrate them all! With the help of Marty McFly and Doc Brown we plan on traveling through time! Pick your favorite era, or three, and get ready to dress the part. It's going to be a blast from the past!
