11. Frisbee Golf (or Frolf)
Take a group of teens to play disc golf.
12. Ultimate Frisbee
I’ll be the referee. I really don’t want to run that much.
13. Happy Hour
Meet teens at a nearby Sonic for “happy hour” and half-price drinks.
14. 7/11 Road Trip
Every year on July 11, all the 7/11 stores in our area give away free small Slurpees. So it only makes sense to take a road trip with teens to every 7/11 in our area.
I’ve always wanted to do a big slip-n-slide on the parish front lawn. I’m not sure how our Facility Director would feel about it. (Ask permission or beg forgiveness?)
16. Mega Water Balloon Fight
Last year we had 4,500 water balloons at our water balloon fight. This year, we’re going for the 5,000 mark! Ask parents and parishioners to fill the balloons for you. Then invite the fire department to bring a truck out and shower the kids after the fight.
17. Worship and Breakfast
Attend a worship service with teens and then enjoy donuts at a local bakery.
18. Family Movie Night
Invite the families to your church soccer fields, pop popcorn, and enjoy! (Note: Be sure you have proper licensing permission to show a movie to a group.)
19. Book Club
Meet with the teens once a month to talk about a faith-based book that everyone reads.
20. Great Mattress Race
Race mattresses, or anything for that matter, around town in the form of a scavenger hunt.
However you fill your “lazy” summer days, maybe find a new adventure to enjoy with the teens sometime during these months. Having a bucket list for teens every summer is a great opportunity for awesome relational ministry!
What’s on your bucket list for teens this summer? Share your ideas in the comments!
