The announcement of awards is an essential element of the whole youth summer camp experience and is as universal as camp songs, awkward uniforms, and cold swimming pools. As such, it can be worth putting thought into exactly what your camp’s contests and awards will be for this year. In this month’s post, we at Spike’s Trophies, the go-to trophy company for the DE area, are offering a helping hand by pitching some ideas for summer camp awards and challenges.
- The Cheerleader Award. This doesn’t have to refer to an actual cheerleader. A Cheerleader Award could also designate the camper who is the biggest “cheerleader” and supporter of kids, whether they’re giving emotional support to the other campers, helping them out with tasks and crafts, or offering encouragement to others in their personal goals. As for the perfect award, you might consider our 2” 3D Cheerleader Medal.
- The Drama Award. This can be taken figuratively or literally. At a drama camp, this award could be given to the camper who is the most talented, practiced the most, or showed the most improvement. Otherwise, the Drama Award could even be affectionately given to the most drama-prone kid in the form of our 3D Drama Medal.
- The Peacemaker Award. This could go to a camper who has distinguished themselves in their conflict mediation skills. Indeed, quarrels between kids tend to flare up quite a lot in many summer camps. Kids who have demonstrated an ability to intervene by calming down both sides, talking through their issues, and facilitating peace among campers are certainly deserving of an award for their developed social skills. The 3D Shaking Hands Medal from Spike’s Trophies might be just the ticket.
- The Most Improved Award. This could be for anything, really. Whichever camper showed the most improvement in fitness, behavior, some sort of skill or craft, attitude, or who showed the most progress in sports or drama could be a contender for Most Improved. As for a tangible reward, our 3D Achievement Medal featuring a hand triumphantly holding an Olympic torch aloft may be an excellent fit.
This is not to mention Spike’s Trophies also offers customized medals, trophies, and sports plaques for New Jersey, Delaware, Philadelphia, and surrounding communities. Are you interested in learning more? Give Spike’s Trophies a call today at 855-652-4030!
