I have yet another great resource from Hugh in North Carolina!
In a past post I asked people for their input about weekend camp activities. Hugh mentioned the “Clubble”. The Clubble is Club in a bubble (of course).
Basically imagine club in a huge plastic tent blown up by fans.
Then inside of the “clubble” you can have club. The projector can simply be projected on the inside of the bubble. Also, since it is an enclosed place it is a great location to do a messy club. At Hugh’s club they have done food smashing skits with the sledge-o-matic (ala Gallagher for those of you who remember, or maybe you tried to forget).
I liked the idea so much that while I was doing program last summer at Lost Canyon I tired to get the whole camp into a clubble for the messy games. That didn’t work out but we did use it as part of the obstacle course. It was a ton of fun. The only problem is that Lost Canyon is in,well, a canyon, and thus it can get windy at times. So the clubble almost blew away a few times. We had Summer Staff holding the clubble down while kids were in it, sometimes in the dark… well at least we tried it.
Hugh was nice enough to give great detailed instructions about how to build a clubble, complete with links to the Home Depot website so you can see exactly what you need and the cost.
This could be a great event to do in the midst of a long Spring semester to mix things up.

Clubble is a great idea, but kill it if the weather forecast is for wind above 15mph. We pulled it off this year, in rain and wind, but it took all we had to keep from joining Dorothy in the Land of Oz.
Everyone should try a clubble once. It’s a lot of work but totally worth it in awesomeness. We kept ours a surprise and then ran everyone outside to the clubble. At night with music pumping and lights going it looked amazing. Hours of building and setting up are definitely worth an hour or so of showing kids how special they are.
