What educators are saying

I used this resource during the last few weeks of school. It was low prep and the students enjoyed it.
I used this resources for my grade 3-5 students over the last two weeds of school. They were all so excited to create their own camp and were so engaged with the task!


For many kids, one of the staples of growing up is attending camps in the summer. It doesn't matter the type, length, or location--but most kids have been to at least one. Summer camps give students unlimited opportunities to be kids.


See below for more details on using it with Google Slides.

This year, instead of sending students to a summer camp, let students create their own. If kids could create the perfect summer camp--what would it be? What would they do? Where would they go? How would they design it?

Create A Summer Camp does this. It asks students to design their perfect summer camp. This project integrates elements of planning, design, and organization with cross curricular activities for students to create their own summer camp. At the end of this PBL students will have completely developed unique and personalized summer camp.

There are 20 activities (most are 1 page each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research. As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.

What's Included


7 Title Page - Introduction

9 Camp Brainstorm

Students brainstorm what they know about summer camps. (This is two pages long.)

11 Summer Camp Types

Students write about what happens at different types of camps (sports, art, academics).

12 What To Do

Students list four activities they’d like at their own summer camp and include why they chose it.

13 Thinking of

Students answer open ended questions about summer camps based on their own preferences.

14 Make It Official

Students will give their camp a title, create a logo, and add a slogan.

15 Camp Theme

Students develop a theme for their camp along with activities that will go with it.

16 Job position

Students pick kids that would work with them at the summer camp.

17 Camp Activities

Students must think of over 20 activities that kids can participate in at the camp.

-Students will illustrate 4-8 of those activities look like.

20 Pack Their Bags

Students must list 8 essential items that campers need to bring when they come to camp.

21 Menu For The Week

Students create a menu for the entire week (three meals a day, food and drink).

22 Essentials

Students develop what resources are needed at the camp site. They will pick from a group, along with add in their own options (if they have them).

23 Flyers

Students create a flyer for the camp that includes the camp name, logo, and activities for kids to do. This can be replaced with students creating a tri-fold with a regular sheet of paper.

24 Campstagram

Students share photos (drawing) of what life is like at camp with the social media app.

25 Schedules

Students will create a single day schedule of camp. There are requirements for the day that must be included. Students can also try to create a week-long schedule (on the following page) using the same rules.

27 A Letter Home

Students write a letter home that tells all about their summer camp experience.

28 Top Draw

Students must design, label, and draw an illustration of a world-class obstacle course that the summer camp has.

29 Camp Design

This is a two-part activity for creating a map of the summer camp. Students will create a map and map key with activities and locations around the camp.

33 Problem Solver

Students must be able to problem solve six situations that could happen during summer camp such as bears invading, poison ivy, and thunderstorms.

All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions. Students may choose to use multiple resources to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, but you get final say on that.
