Summer Camp Journal Printable

My kids are heading off to camp soon.  We have been busy making last minute purchases (bug spray, postcards, etc.) and packing all their gear.

When we travel together, we enjoy keeping a journal or scrapbook.  We include photographs, ticket stubs, and receipts. When time allows, we also create sketches of the flora and fauna.

Often we use a blank sketch book for our journal.  Other times we use a ruled journal.  For summer camp, I thought it would be fun to have a fun journal with lots of prompts and cute graphics.

I looked for a summer camp journal both locally and online but have been unable to find one that is gender neutral.  I thus decided to create my own.

This 36 page journal is the perfect way for the kids to record their experiences at summer camp.  It is full of fun journaling prompts and has ample space for photographs, autographs, and even a sketch of the camp.

Here is a peak at the Table of Contents:

The Summer Camp Journal is now available from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

    • Hello;
      I am a Summer Camp Director and I just love what you’ve done. I am thinking about making my own for our camp but I love the set up and gender neutral set up that you have.


      • Thank you so much! My kids really enjoyed using it! My daughter has never liked pink and girlie things, hence my inspiration to create something gender neutral. 🙂

  1. I attended a summer camp as a 6th grader at Okoboji Lakes. That was enough for me. My kids have been to AWANA camp several times now and they are 12 & 13. So much more socialized than I ever was, that’s for sure. They’ve also been attending grandparent’s camp each summer individually for years. When one is out of the line up, the whole family is exponentially more peaceful (go figure). Thanks for this format. I love your fonts and this TOC.

  2. Thank you so much, Dee! I attended church camp and 4H camp as a child and have such fond memories. I think the stories I shared with the kids is what excited them about going themselves. My youngest has only ever been to “grandma’s camp” so this will be a first for him.

  3. Yes, I attended church camp when I was young, I still attend church camp, as a teacher. In fact in just 2 weeks my family and I will be heading out to camp for the 4th year. I look forward to seeing this and utilizing it with my son.

  7. I’m hoping to create a Grandma & Grandpa camp for my 6 and 9 year old granddaughters and want them to create a journal for the days they will spend with us.

  8. I might be camp counselor next summer and was trying to get camp journals together but your idea can to mine

  9. I love this journal. My daughter is awesome at writing everything she does down in paper. I would love to have this download. Thanks so much.
