Summer Youth Camp - Copycat Summer Youth Camp - Copycat Presentation Transcript

  • Summer Youth Camp - Copycat In this youth game idea, a person in the center of a group of youth must identify the leader who begins an action that everyone else in the youth group imitates www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • Optimal Youth Group Size for Game 10-20 people but it can be played with less or more. For very large groups you may wish to split the youth group up into multiple circles. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • Game Venue This youth game can be played in any open area, indoors or outdoors Game Preparation Set up the game by getting everyone in the youth group to stand in a circle facing inwards. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • Game Play 1. Ask one of the youth to leave the room for a minute. This youth will be “it” or the person who will try to identify the leader. 2. While he or she is out of the room, the rest of the group decides who will be the “leader.” The leader will be the youth who initiates the movements for that round of the game. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • 3. When the leader has been chosen, invite the youth who left the room back to stand in the center of the circle. 4. Each round begins with all the youth in the circle swinging their arms up and down. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • 5. The leader will initiate other movements, which the rest of the youth must copy. They must be careful to copy the leader without revealing who the leader is. They should not stare at the leader or identify the leader in any way. 6. The leader can do just about anything he or she wants. The more crazy the action, the more fun! www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com 7. Here are some basic ideas: clapping, making a funny face, doing a karate kick, stamping a foot, act like a monkey, jump up and down, spin in place, pat his or her head, rub his or her belly, do a dance move, cross arms, pick his or her nose, etc.
  • 8. The person in the center of the circle is allowed to make up to three guesses. If a guess is incorrect, the round continues. If the guess is correct, the leader takes the center position for the next round and must leave the room while a new leader is chosen from among the remaining youth. If all three guesses are used up and the leader is not correctly guessed, you can have the person in the center do a forfeit then select a new leader. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com

What is an area where you need to rise to the challenge of being a leader? www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com www.CreativeScavengerHunts.com
  • Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only. This youth camp curriculum was designed to teach the basic truths of obedience in addition to evangelism in the context of a Biblical character. The advantage of going through a book and looking at one man's story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real!

  • Creative Youth Ideas Camp Bible Study Series “Who Do You Say that I AM?” www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/whodoyousay.html -> Tell me about “Who Do You Say that I AM?” Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do others say that I am?" It was easy to answer because it required no conviction, no commitment, and no risk. But then he follows that question with another, "Who do YOU say that I am?" www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com
  • Live the Fruitful, Abundant Life Jesus Promised. Great for youth camps or weekly Youth Bible Study. There are 7 Primary Bible study Sessions in the series. www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/fruitofthespirit.html -> Tell me about “Fruit Of the Spirit” Creative Youth Ideas Youth Camp Bible Study Series “Fruit Of the Spirit” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com
  • "The Great Adventure" is western themed Bible study series loosely based around the song of the same name by Steven Curtis Chapman. It was initially written for a large Texas Church to use for their Summer Youth Camp but has since then proven popular around the world.
