Two Easy Summer Youth Mission Trip Ideas

When summer is approaching, you should start planning your youth group mission trip. There are many ideas you can incorporate in your trip that do not cost an arm and a leg. But even more important, the ideas will help you minister to other people and spread the message of love. If you are the team leader of your youth group, you know how long planning summer activities can take. 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.

When you have planned your summer youth group trip, make sure you include other activities to continue the ministry you may have started during the school year. Ideally, you should come up with activities that can help to build and bond the members so that they become better citizens of the community. Many of the activities you may have planned may not come to fruition given the excitement you may have during summer. This is why you should plan ahead.

Here are some ideas you can consider for your summer youth mission trip.

Fast Food Fridays
There are many free and exciting activities you can do without spending 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. You can then let students know your schedule after deciding on the places and dates when you will be available. Such informal meetings are great for bonding with other students and ministering to them.

Park Meetings
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 a cheap way to get your youth group members to meet and enjoy ministry without having to spend any money.

Your youth group can engage in different activities during the summer without spending a lot of money. Planning is important as you want to make the most of summer. In most cases, planning activities that do not cost a lot of money will lead to the success of your trip.
