2019 Theme Weeks
Each week, we have a specific theme that shows up in our nightly skits, night games, and Wednesday night dance! Counselors will dress up according to the theme during these activities, and there are a number of campers that dress up in that theme for the dance too! If you have something you want to bring, come rep your week's theme!
Week 1 - Looney Pines
Panda season! Man season! Panda season! Man season! FIRE! Let’s kick camp off in the right way --- with some cartoony, zany hijinks! Join the Theme Team as they try to get themselves out of a number of crazy situations throughout the week. For the dance, represent your favorite cartoon!
Week 2 - Pirates of East Texas
Avast ye scalliwags! Be ye brave enough to set sail with the Theme Team as they traverse the vast seas of Lake Lou Ann? Everyone’s got a job to do if we’re to find the precious treasure of The Pines. For the dance, ye would be wise to bring your best pirate garb in order to fit in. Eye patches, peg legs, bandanas, it all works on our ship. At attention, captain’s coming!
Week 3 - How to Train Your Panda
There’s some trouble brewing at camp, and it looks like we may actually have to call in help from our Panda reserves! Problem is...the pandas have become more wild lately. We’ll get these Pandas on our side, but we’ll need to help of the Theme Team! For the dance, medieval garb would fit right in!
Week 4 - Pines X Games
RADICAL! Join us for a week of spectacular stunts and fierce competition as our theme team competes in a different take on some extreme sports. For the dance, go over the top with helmets, kneepads, or whatever else you think might fit in at an X Games competition!
Week 5 - National Paradise: The Stolen Fireworks
“I’m gonna steal the fireworks from The Pines.” You know that won’t do. Join Theme Team through a fun, cheesy adventure with a hilarious cast as we celebrate America’s birthday! For the dance, be as patriotic and over the top as possible. Red, white, and blue, baby!
Week 6 - Wild Wild East
“This camp ain’t big enough for the two of us.” Join us on a journey back to a simpler, but more dangerous time. Larger than life villains and heroic deputies engage in a battle of wits in a fun western take on Theme Team. For the dance, get those cowboy hats, fake mustaches, and other cowboy/cowgirl gear on that packing list!
Week 7 - Legends of the Hidden Campground
At The Pines, mysterious legends have been passed down through generations. The only connection we have with those tales are hidden, ancient artifacts. Join the Theme Team as we search for the hidden artifacts that will tell us more about how The Pines Catholic Camp began! For the dance, bring your best explorer or safari gear!
Week 8 - Big Sandy 500
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! There’s a trophy to be won, and our competing Theme Team is willing to go to whatever means necessary to bring home the gold. Whose side will you be on? For the dance, get creative and wear whatever you think conveys speed. Gotta go fast!
Week 9 - Where in the World is The Man?
The Man is up to something mischievous, and it’s up to us to put a stop to him! Join Theme Team in a globetrotting adventure as we search for him and try to put an end to his fiendish plans. For the dance, wear something unique from any country of your choice!
Week 10 - Back to the Past
Trails? Where we’re going, we don’t need trails! The Theme Team is prepping for a wild, time-travelling journey and they’re enlisting you to help them! You’re sure to see interesting places from the past as well as unreal possibilities of the far future! For the dance, dress up in the time of any era that you’d like --- past or future!
