Here at JetBands®, we love summer. But what are the best ways for your kids to spend their free time during these free beautiful months? If you happen to be a summer camp director or counselor, you would agree that camp is an invaluable opportunity for kids to gain greater responsibility, learn teamwork, and master skills – all while having fun outdoors.
Below, we share a few of our favorite aspects of summer camp and how JetBands® can offer a new twist to your planned activities and skill-building for your campers.
Let campers wear their accomplishments loud and proud
Showcase your campers as they take on new heights – literally and figuratively – with DIY JetBands® wristbands.
Customize your activity bracelets down to every detail, including things such as: bunk name, age group, and even details about their new accomplishment.
When a camper completes a difficult challenge, let them design their own printable wristbands that they can proudly wear for the entire week. Some ideas include:
- Pass an open water swim test
- Complete a series of tennis or rock-climbing lessons
- Finish a sailing certification
With all of the available sports and activities available to your campers, it’s likely that a wristband will need to hold up for several days while they swim, sweat, and play. It’s a good thing that JetBands® are both water-resistant and durable for days of wear.
let creativity run wild at camp
Planning and organizing the right activities for the upcoming camp session can be stressful. Luckily, JetBands® can be used for hundreds of things in addition to wristbands and they can even be designed by your campers all on their own.
Below are a few easy examples you can try out:
- Keep track of which campers received their s’more, ice cream, t-shirt, etc. at the Bonfire Party
- Help campers from losing their reusable water bottle by wrapping a wristband label on it
- Friendship bracelets
- A hiking-friendly scavenger hunt
