Beach Themed Recruitment... Help!

Hello Fabulous Kappa Ladies!!!

Our chapter is completely redoing our recruitment theme for next year - we have decided to go with a beach theme...

our first round is "A Day at the Beach"
our second round is "Under the Sea" (The Little Mermaid)
and our third round is "Catch the Kappa Wave" (The Beach Boys)

We are trying to write completely new songs/skits...

I figure that somewhere a Kappa chapter has used some sort of beach related recruitment theme... I'm looking for help of any kind!

skit ideas/scripts, song lyrics, song ideas, decoration ideas, outfit suggestions, shirt designs, slogans... comments/input in general

Thanks so much girls!

I'm sorry to crash, and I'm sure it's been done before somewhere...but you should do "Kappa Cabana!!"

Great Idea!

I've been doing some research and it sounds like a ton of you girls have done a "Kappa Cabana" type theme...

Does anyone have lyrics/skit ideas that might be helpful?...
I might still try to tie in the Beach Boys with Kappa Cabana.
Does anyone have suggestions for other beach related songs that could potentially be used too?

Here are the lyrics my chapter used at UCF last year. They sang this on Video Day, and it turned out really cute. It was my first time helping out as an alum, and I really enjoyed holding the door and watching the girls sing!

Her name is Lola
She is a freshman
With confusion on her mind
There was one place she could find
She came to Kappa
Kappa Cabana
And when she saw all of our fun,
She knew that our house was the one
Where she could fit right in
And wear our golden pin
Right then she knew that KKG
Was the place to be
At the Kappa
Kappa Cabana
It's the hottest spot in all of Central Florida
Here at the Kappa
Kappa Cabana
Friendship and laughter
At the Kappa....(repeat)

My chapter also wrote lyrics for Kappa Kabana several years ago. They're pretty similar to the ones already posted, but my advisor, who was a charter member of the chapter, sent them to me this year:

"Her name was Lola
She was a Kappa
With two blue ribbons in her hair
And a key she'd always wear
It was in springtime
She joined Recruitment
And at the end of those four nights
She felt that Kappa fit just right
Into her life at school
She finds her sisters cool
They are young and they have each other
Who could ask for more?
At the Kappa
Kappa Kabana
We want you to join Kappa Gamma
At the Kappa
Kappa Kabana
Style, grace, and laughter
Are part of our chapter
And at Kappa.....
You'll fall in love! "

I also have still have a t-shirt design for the theme somewhere, in case anyone is interested.

Its been forever since I did recruitment/rush but my chapter did a beach theme (Actually, the theme was around the world, our second party was beach themed). Instead of the Kappa Kabana theme, we had a "MTV Beach Party" for our skit... we had big inflatable rafts, beach balls, etc hanging on the walls and ceiling, grass skirts for table skirts, etc. We also had pictures of kappas together at the beach from spring break, summer trips, and such posted around the room.

For our skit.. since we had the MTV spring break style theme, we went with whatever current songs we could think up kappa words too. It probably helped that one of our sisters was absolutely improv-style hilarious and could seriously entertain a room, and we had a few amazing singers too.

We also had a reality-television style hula-hoop contest with potential members trying to out hula-hoop the chapter president. That was fun - I think it helped our house set the tone that we were not as "stuffy" as some of the other chapters.

I also remember making these cute little yellow suns for name tags. Beyond that, its been too long for me to offer what else we did..

Good Luck!

Paula
