Looking for new ideas for your youth group? Chances are you already have your own resources but here are activities that some of our youth leaders have done and are willing to share with you.
Have some activities that you'd like to share with others?

Photo Scavenger Hunt
This idea was submitted by Julie Alewine to Ministry to Youth.
How to Play: Combine as many items listed as possible into one picture and text it to the leader. First to respond with the most points wins!
Items posted on the pictured list include: pillow, toilet paper, Bible, adult, mismatched socks, stuffed animal, keys, spoons, coins, and food. Extra points for pet, musical instrument, etc.
Feel free to modify the items on the list or the points awarded.
Youth Mission Project: Walk-a-thon
This activity teaches about Mission in a way that youth have to do more than just ask for money; they have to earn it (e.g., by walking 4 km or baking/selling, etc.):
Youth Mission Project: Chili Lunch
Again, the point is not to have the youth ask for money but to have them do something to raise funds.
