Boasting beautiful forests and lakes, schedules jam-packed with outdoor activities, and not an ounce of homework, camps are the ultimate summer setting. They’re ripe for making memories, like sleeping in cabins and learning how to shoot a bow and arrow, and they’re full of famous and fun traditions like the morning flag-raising ceremony, Carnival day, storytelling at bonfires, and camp Olympics.
At Flutter FETTI, we realize that many of these great traditions could use an extra dose of excitement from our famous confetti, which is fun, colorful, and perfect for getting campers pumped up! Best of all our tissue FETTI is 100% biodegradable and flame retardant, so camp counselors and directors need not worry about cleaning up the campgrounds!
Color War Breaks
Color Wars are huge multi-day inter-camp competitions. The “break” is the surprising and often outrageous start to the event. Color War breaks at summer camps have involved everything from people parachuting out of helicopters and commandos in scuba gear emerging from a lake to knights jousting on horseback and celebrities arriving in stretch limos.
While hiring celebrities or a team of professionals to partake in the break can be dramatic, it can also be expensive. If you want the same excitement factor, but at a fraction of the cost, rent Master Blaster Confetti Launchers to shoot off streamers and confetti up to 100 feet into the air. You can customize the streamer and confetti to match the summer camp team colors and pair the launch with a video, skit, or flash mob dance to make it a truly astonishing and unexpected break!
Theater and Stage Productions
Some summer camps are dedicated to acting while others have theater as one of the optional activities. Even camps without a dedicated theater department will often do cabin skits or talent shows. Regardless, productions take a lot of coordination and patience in order to assemble, rehearse, and eventually present on stage. After putting in so much time and energy, you want to celebrate your hard work! As the final act comes to a close, hand out 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks to everyone standing on stage. Then as you prepare to take a bow, flick the sticks with your wrists and send a flurry on confetti into the crowd below. What a spectacular ending!
The origins of the name may be a mystery, but the name itself conjures up images of campers racing around the summer camp property. The Apache Relay is a classic event where campers are divided into teams and sent on a relay race using their bodies, minds, and plenty of teamwork in order to win. Running in potato sack races, solving puzzles, canoeing across the lake, playing the “Fuzzy Bunny” challenge, and making human pyramids are all part of the relay race fun. When your team takes the lead at a big event or wins the entire Apache Relay, celebrate the moment by shooting off 6” Flutter Flicker Confetti Launchers. Everyone will know you’re the new team to beat!
