Paula Hrbacek (phrbacek) | 5 comments If you're looking for camp crafts and activities to use in a recreational program, summer school, or summer camp, here is a great resource. Day Camp in Hawaii has 132 pages of ideas including sports, crafts, art, Hawaiian lore, geology, and more. It uses a lot of recycled materials to help cut the cost of a program. It can be used by a number of youth groups including Cub Scouts, Junior Girl Scouts, YMCA and Campfire. Just adapt and choose to make it fit your situation. Yes, it's my book. I also write a newspaper column about arts and crafts for The Examiner.

I'm known for being thrifty. Here's the url for my newspaper column, if you're looking for group crafts that are cheap and easy to do.

Paula Hrbacek (phrbacek) | 5 comments I'm looking for reviews of this book. I've sent out at least a dozen copies to camping professionals, but one of them told me he can't write a review because of his contract. I'm wondering if all of these people have a clause that says they can't sell something using the company name. So, now I'd like to ask if you'd be willing to write a review. I'm looking for someone who has some experience working with youth groups, recreational programs, after school care, that sort of thing. I'm willing to send you a Kindle or Nook. Sorry, but my spam filter won't let me email a pdf. Send me a direct message, and I'll get back to you. thanks.

Jim (jimmaclachlan) | 1387 comments Day Camp in Hawaii by Paula Knoderer Hrbacek is for grades 1 - 6 according to the title page. I disagree. It's not just for day camp, Hawaii, or those ages. With very little imagination, it gives any parent a lot of fun ideas of things to do with kids singly or in groups cheaply, whether you're on a trip, have a rainy vacation day, or a birthday party. Baby sitters should read it, too.

My 5 star review is here:

Paula Hrbacek (phrbacek) | 5 comments For those of you looking for camp crafts and ideas that pertain to the Girl Scout/4H/Heritage Girl religious emblem, I Am Living My Faith, I have a free ebook you can download. It contains games, activities and service project ideas, and tips on how to run the emblem during a campout or retreat.
