One year, rather than having an individual theme for each day, we decided to have the entire week with the theme of “Pirates”.
Our wonderful son-in-law designed the T-shirts (thank you again, Mark) and we were off!!
Any pirate worth his (or her) salt needs to be able to “talk the talk”. So, before Camp got rolling, we had a session on Pirate Talk.
I have attached a pdf for you to use for your Pirate Day, but here are a few of the most popular to get you started….
To instantly become “pirate-like,” just add “arrrrrr” at the end of your sentence–it’s the one thing EVERY pirate says.
It isn’t a mistake that there are three ways to say Friend in our Pirate Dictionary…
BRINEY DEEP: The bottom of the ocean
BUCKO: “My friend.”
CAP’N: Captain of the Ship
CROW’S NEST: A small platform near the top of a mast
LAD: Young Boy
LANDLUBBER: A non-sailor
LASSIE: Young Girl
ME HEARTY: “My friend.”
POOPDECK: The highest deck at the back of the ship (and kids just like to say it)
WALK THE PLANK: A dire punishment in which one must walk off a wooden board on the side of a ship and fall into the ocean.
YO –HO-HO: A very piratical thing to say, whether it actually means anything or not.
