10 Ways to Propose at Summer Camp


Since so many people meet at summer camp, it’s only natural that some couples who meet at camp would also think it would be really cool to get engaged and even married at the place where their love began and/or blossomed. For a guy looking to impress with his proposal, summer camp does offer a range of possibilities.

Here are 10 of them that have happened and been shared with the world on YouTube.

Unwrap a painting and hand it to her in the dining hall

Get the other guy staff members to break tradition by serenading the girls with love songs and then drop to one knee

Act like it’s all just part of a performance and then drop to one knee when you get her on stage

Make it part of a skit

Pop the question on signs and make your campers hold them

Fake a twisted ankle

Show a video professing your love during staff appreciation night while hiding out in the kitchen

Sway side to side and drop down on one knee by the campfire while wearing firefighter pants and suspenders

Sing a song (to get an item you lost on purpose back from Lost & Found)

Write a poem and read it in front of the whole camp during circle time
