5 Spring Break Ideas for Teens

1. Monday: Broomball Tournament

Head to the ice indoors or outdoors (depending on where you live). Take brooms and a ball, and set some wacky rules. End with a pizza party and a group devotion.

2. Tuesday: Service Day

Contact your local homeless shelter, food pantry, or nursing home. The options for youth service projects are endless! Ask how you can best serve. Depending on how large your group is, send different teams to various locations. Then come back together and share stories from the day while enjoying snacks.

3. Wednesday: Scavenger Hunt

Hit a local mall for an afternoon scavenger hunt. Then grab dinner together as a group. Be sure to call the mall beforehand to let them know what you’re planning.

4. Thursday: Fundraise and Babysit

Offer babysitting for an afternoon. Parents can drop off their younger children for a few hours. Teens can play games with the children, do crafts, sing songs, etc. Be sure to have plenty of adult volunteers who have had background checks. Optional: Take donations for upcoming mission trips or youth ministry activities.
