This is one of the best youth ministry activities around. Your attendance is sure to rise by doing a fun teen activity like this. All you need to do is rent a karaoke machine and let them be the stars! Bonus tip: Rent a smoke machine as well to add a bit more fun to the evening!
Video Scavenger Hunt
Be sure to have a couple of adult chaperones on hand and a large vehicle per team. End the hunt at the local pizza shop or ice cream parlor for a fun treat. If you make an end of the year video for your group, you will surely have some fun footage from this event. Here are some great video scavenger hunt ideas.
This is a youth group staple. It's basically a game of "hide and seek" with a twist. One person, "It" goes and hides while everyone else counts to 100, 500, or however long you want "It" to have to hide. All the other players then go in search of "It" and when they find him/her they stay and hide with them. The last person to find the group at the end is "It" for the next round of play. This is a great game to do in a YMCA, an old building or a church since the more nooks and crannies there are the more fun it becomes.
Build your own pizza. Or build your own sundae.
Activities involving food make great youth ministry activities and always go over well with teenagers. Simply have all the supplies on hand and let them have at it.
Organize a community service activity for your youth group. Ideas include: visiting the local nursing home, cooking a meal for the families at the Ronald McDonald House, volunteering with a local trail restoration crew, etc. This is a great way to get your group out into the community and learning to make a difference in the lives of others.
