This year is the fourth annual Kamp Kappa Delta! Kamp KΔ is a leadership retreat for my fellow sorority advisors and I to spend time with the newly elected collegiate chapter officers of the Kappa Delta chapter at WSU as they prepare for their term.
In 2012, the retreat was a one-day event, but the advisors and I quickly realized that we wanted more time with the officers, so we designed an overnight event and once we settled on Girl Scout camp as our location, a theme was born! We held our first Kamp in January 2013 and it’s been a tradition ever since (we’ve only missed one year).
Since I love any excuse to plan a themed event, I get to be in charge of the decor and fun! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite things about this year’s Kamp KΔ.
My first favorite is the printables set I got from Anders Ruff. This is definitely a favorite year after year! Here’s a peek at the printables.
Each year, I use the printables in a different way. Here’s a look back at some of the ways I’ve used them in the past!
I always utilize the “trail mix” tags, and this year I’m changing it up a bit and doing a whole Trail Mix bar! The bar is my next favorite and you can check out the details here.
I love that it’s Whole30 compliant and delicious, and I think the Kampers will have fun creating combinations.
My next favorite is our camp craft. Last year’s craft was such a hit that we’re repeating it again this year – it’s Make Your Own Soap! I set out the scents, exfoliates, and have the soap melting in a crockpot. Everyone can come up with their own combination or choose one from the menu I created.
Last year a couple of the popular combinations were the “Apple Pie” and “Morning Sunrise.” Can’t wait to see what everyone creates this year!
Each year at Kamp, we do a gift. In the past I’ve done a shirt and a water bottle. This year, it’s a sweatshirt blanket from one of my favorite Greek shops, Boutique Greek, and that’s my next favorite!
And my final favorite is getting to spend time with my sisters! It’s always such a fun weekend and something I look forward to every January!
