The Canteen is a tribute to all things Jewish sleepaway camp. Hosted by the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC), this blog is written by campers, alumni, parents, and camp professionals and is a place to talk about parenting, camp fun, projects, crafts, recipes, and more – all tied back to Jewish holidays, traditions and, of course, camp!
Purim’s getting close, so we’re sharing some camp-themed costume ideas for you to enjoy!
One of the most delicious memories of camp is s’mores roasting over a fire, so why not dress as one? Your toddler will be so yummy in this S’more Costume!
Channel your inner counselor! Get dressed up as your favorite madrich or madricha with these
. Bonus: You can use them in place of a grogger during the Megillah reading!
Continuing with the counselor theme, how about adding a backpack to round out the costume? This cool
tye-dye Jansport backpack
will also be perfect for carrying and delivering mishloach manot, or Purim food gifts.
Round out your counselor costume with this
Columbia Bora Bora sun hat
. It may not necessarily be sunny this Purim, but it sure will get you in the mood for summer (and of course, summer camp!)
Share your Purim fun with family and friends! Send this Purim gift basket full of kosher hamatashen, adorable masks and other fun activities.
We hope you enjoy our camp-themed Purim picks, and chag sameach!
