Camping Classroom Theme Ideas

WHY CHOOSE A CAMPING CLASSROOM THEME

A camping classroom theme helps you create a nature-inspired elementary classroom. Your students will feel like they are going on a fun adventure in the summer to the forest whenever they enter your classroom!

Teachers love this theme because it’s simple and can be done on a budget by pulling in natural elements like pinecones, acorns, leaves, and sticks. You can also bring camping items from home, which makes it so you won’t need to store your camping gear in your house during the school year. That’s a win-win!

This theme works well for both lower and upper elementary classroom decor.

BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS

BULLETIN BOARD BACKGROUNDS

You can contact various parks and request trail maps that you can be used as bulletin board backgrounds. You can also use burlap, flannel and denim as bulletin board backings to create a rustic DIY vibe. If you choose to use fabric as your bulletin board background, natural tones like brown, green and beige provide a nice neutral backdrop.

BULLETIN BOARD TRIM

  • pine christmas garland
  • scrunched-up burlap
  • wrinkled brown construction paper
  • green tissue paper
  • leaves

BULLETIN BOARD TITLES

  • “S’more Good Work”
  • “Camp Out With a Good Book”
  • “Fired up for (grade)”
  • “Welcome Happy Campers”
  • When creating your own titles, use words like s’more, fire or adventure.

OTHER IDEAS FOR A SCHOOL CLASSROOM THEME

  • Hang fishing bobs and fish cutouts from some fishing line attached to the ceiling.
  • Bring in coolers, artificial Christmas trees, sleeping bags, a small tent and camping chairs.
  • Set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
  • Take pictures of the students wearing plaid shirts and tan “camper hats” and use those photos as labels for lockers/cubbies, student work boards, or simply display them in the classroom.
  • Use fishing buckets to hold supplies.
