Camp Cinderella: Part 2

Camp Cinderella: Activities for a princess-inspired camping party

When Jenna first suggested a camping and Cinderella themed party, I immediately loved the idea. I wasn’t exactly sure how to pull it off, but I knew it would be fun to try. Jenna had a few requests – like wanting to dress up like princesses and wanting to make necklaces – so that was my starting point and I added on from there.

Here’s what a day at Camp Cinderella turned out to be:

When guests arrived, they entered into the ‘costume area where they could gear up with all of the necessary clothing and equipment for the day (capes, tutus, sunglasses, tiaras, etc.).

After getting dressed up, the guests moved out to the backyard where they could choose from our ‘camp activities.’

Camp activities included:

  • Archery – we had a couple of sets of the Brave archery bow and arrows and a hula hoop hanging from a tree to serve as the target.
  • Horse Riding – it doesn’t get much better than a pink pony with lots of sparkles galloping through your yard.
  • Necklace-Making
  • Sword Fighting
  • S’mores – see Part 1 for the camp menu
  • Tent “Clean-Up” – I purchased these castle tents and then decided at the last minute to add a few toy brooms so that the kids could clean their castles, just as Cinderella was required to do before going to the ball.
  • Camp Photos – I purchased a frame at Michaels, spray painted it Cinderella blue and suspended it from the ceiling using pink tulle. I added some tulle along the wall behind it for an easy photo opp set-up.

I think the highlight, at least for Jenna, was definitely the horse. There’s something pretty magical about a sparkly pink pony wandering around in your yard.
