Easy Summer Ideas that Will Work for Any Youth Ministry Group
It is important to plan your youth mission trip before summer sets in. There are many ideas you can incorporate in your trip that do not cost an arm and a leg. These simple ideas can help you minister and spread your message to other people in an effective manner. Planning summer activities can take quite a long time. When planning the trip, make sure the activities you include will be suitable for everyone. This usually means opting for shorter, cheaper and simpler activities that are close to home.
It is important to ensure the activities you plan help to continue the ministry message you may have started. Since the members will have time, come up with activities that can help to build them to become better citizens. With the excitement that summer usually brings, you may end up not doing many of the activities you may have planned. This is the reason why it is crucial to plan ahead.
Here are two ideas that you can include in your summer youth group trip and that will not cost any money.
There are a variety of activities you can do which do not require you to spend any money. For example, you can choose to hang out at local food joints on Fridays or any other day you prefer. To do this, you will need to come up with a list of restaurants in your area and plan when you will be available, perhaps from 11am to 1pm. After deciding on the places and dates when you will be available, you can then let other students know of your schedule. You can use such meetings to bond and minister to other students.
Meet at the Park
Meeting at the local parks is also another way in which you can bond with members of your youth group. Simply ask the group members to carry packed lunch on the specific days and meet at the park for an afternoon of fun and games. You can provide a cooler full of drinks to increase the chances of even more people coming to the meeting. You can play kickball, Frisbee or any other game you may like. This is one of the activities that is both cheap and make it easy for your group members to bond with each other.
You do not need to spend a lot of money with your youth group to have fun during the summer. It is important to plan ahead if you want to make the most of the summer. Generally, the success of your trip is likely to be high if you plan activities that do not cost any money.
