Disney Channel’s Camp Rock movie is hot! People of all ages enjoy this upbeat, fun movie that ends with a great message. Just like the other popular Disney Channel characters, shows and movies, Camp Rock will inspire birthday parties for children, preteens and teens. This is the third part in a 3 part series of articles where I give you tons of ideas to create a fantastic homemade Camp Rock birthday party. In Part 1, I focused on Camp Rock birthday party decorations. Part 2 was all about Camp Rock birthday party invitations and food ideas. This 3rd part will explore all the possible Camp Rock birthday party activities, games and party favors that you can plan and create.
For all the Camp Rock birthday party ideas, I used a Camp meets Rock Star theme. I also implemented as many homemade touches as possible. Anytime we use homemade touches, we are enhancing our parties so that they are more memorable, less expensive and much more unique.
Camp Rock birthday party Activity and Game ideas:
- Karaoke: You can borrow or rent a karaoke machine and have the party guest sing Camp Rock songs as well as any camp related songs.
- Sleeping Bag Relay: Divide your Camp Rock birthday party guests into 2 groups and set them up for a relay. Give each team a sleeping bag and have one team member lay in the sleeping bag while another drags him/her across the floor to the rest of their team in a race while switching members at the end of each line.
- Dance Mat: Borrow or buy a commercial dance mat and set it up in your Camp Rock birthday party space. An activity like this one is more fun the more people you have ,
- Decorate T-Shirts: No matter the age of your Camp Rock birthday party guests, everyone loves to make t-shirts. You can have “Camp Rock” ironed on the shirts before hand so the guest just decorate them, or you can let them start from scratch. Have plenty of supplies to work with like fabric paints, fabric pens, and Camp Rock inspired sponge or cookie cutter shapes like microphones or trees to use to paint their shirts.
- Decorate Bucket Hats, Flip Flops, or Camp laundry sacks. You can use the same supplies as you would with the t-shirts and allow the Camp Rock birthday party guest to create however they would like. Fake gems and jewels add the Rock Star element nicely.
- Mitchie Serving Relay: Since Mitchie, the Camp Rock movie’s main character, works in the dining hall, you could have a fun tray relay. Just set up a tray with various meal items like a plastic plate, utensils, a plastic cup etc. and have the players run without spilling the items before handing them off to the next person in line. Have the Camp Rock birthday party guests wear aprons for a better picture opportunity.
- Camp Rock Pie Eating Contest:
- Don’t Forget the Lyrics: Play a game where your Camp Rock birthday party guest have to remember and recite the lyrics to either Camp Rock movie songs or the lyrics to other favorite camp songs.
- Camp Rock 3 legged Race
- Camp Rock Sack Race
- Camp Rock Star Homemade Picture Frame: Precut cardboard frames from any sturdy cardboard. Have the guests hot glue twigs to the entire cardboard surface leaving the photo window open. Set out fake jewels and gems for decorating to mesh the feel of camp with the style of rock star.
- Tye Dye bandannas and/or t-shirts
- Final Jam- Just like the movie ended in a contest of talent called Final Jam, your Camp Rock birthday party can too. Use your stage that you created from the ideas in my first part of How to Create a Homemade Camp Rock birthday party and allow the party guests to perform however they feel comfortable. You can go simply and just allow them to perform or you can have judges and a winner. Either way, keep it light and fun.
At the end of your Camp Rock birthday party, send all the guests home with a party favor or 2. Below is a list of some ideas for Camp Rock birthday party favors.
Camp Rock birthday party favor ideas:
- Blow up guitars with Sharpies for all the guests to sign
- Pre-made t-shirts with C-A-M-P R-O-C-K spelled out in gems
- Bucket hats, flip flops, or bandannas
- Homemade S’more packs
- Flash lights
You could stuff many of these items in a white pillowcase and tie with rustic looking cording for a “camper going home” look.
Whatever Camp Rock birthday party ideas you decide to use, have fun with it! Good Luck.
