Two Easy Summer Youth Mission Trip Ideas

It is important to plan your youth mission trip before summer sets in. There are a number of cheap activities that are fun and can be easily included in your trip. While these ideas may be simple, they will help you minister and spread your message to other people. If you are the team leader of your youth group, you know how long planning summer activities can take. It’s important to ensure the trip you plan will be suitable for all your group members. You can do this by ensuring the activities you come up with are simple, cheap and short.

It is important to ensure the activities you plan help to continue the ministry message you may have started. Since the group members will be having time during the summer, make sure you come up with activities that can help bond the group together and make them active citizens of the community. With the excitement that summer usually brings, you may end up not doing many of the activities you may have planned. This is why you should plan ahead.

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

Friday Meetings
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. For example, you can make a list of food joints in your neighborhood and schedule your appearance every Friday from 11.30am to 1.30pm. 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.

Meetings at the Park
You can also meet at the park on specific days to engage with the group members. You can ask your group members to carry packed lunch to the park. To entice the members to come, you can opt to provide a cooler full of drinks. You can make the park meeting a fun event by playing kickball, Frisbee or other games. You can be sure your group members will be happy and can bond with each other in such meetings.

You do not need to spend a lot of money with your youth group to have fun during the summer. Planning is important as you want to make the most of summer. Generally, the success of your trip is likely to be high if you plan activities that do not cost any money.
