You can charge admission to the singing festivities (or ask for a love offering or donation) and sell concessions throughout the event.
You can also create a request system where guests can ask for particular songs by donating a few dollars to the choir director or song leader.
Fill a room with balloons. Hide small pieces of paper inside them that designate prizes (e.g., gift cards, free car wash, plate of home made brownies, etc.).
Sell tickets to get inside. Each ticket is worth a needle and each needle is allowed to pop one balloon. “Pop for prizes!”
Camp Memories Night
Plan an evening of sharing for all ages about “memories of times a camp”. Collect a love offering at the event.
Here are some ideas for things you could do to make the event special:
Collect pictures from people who have been to camp and create a slide show. (How far back can you get pictures? 1950? 1960? 1970?)
Make a short video of pictures of camp and interviews of people who have fond memories of camp.
Host the event outside around a campfire (or make a mock campfire indoors)
Invite someone to lead the singing of camp songs.
Make (and sell?) s’mores!
