Youth Camp - A Whale of A Tale

  1. 1. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Camp Curriculum“ A Whale of a Tale” Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only By Creative Youth Ideas http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  2. 2. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comDear Friend,"A Whale of a Tale" is one of my favoritecamp Bible studies. I initially wrote it anumber of years back for a large church inTexas, but since then it has been used bychurches around the world! http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  3. 3. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• 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 mans story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real! Youth relate more to stories than to the bare facts. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  4. 4. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• The story of Jonah is the primary framework of this series. The key to making this series come to life is to help youth relate with Jonah in each narrative. Explore how principle characters probably felt. Explore how youth would feel in similar circumstances. Explore how youth would respond in similar situations. Explore the things that youth can learn from these characters. Special learning activities might be to have youth rewrite the stories in a modern situation, act them out, etc. A creative teacher could dress up as Jonah or one of the other characters and tell the story from a first person perspective. Be creative. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  5. 5. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• The other advantage of using a Bible Narrative is the continuity between studies. We are able to see Jonah from beginning to end, his disobedience and his obedience, his faults and his triumphs, his bad attitudes and his good ones. The passage itself is the primary illustration. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  6. 6. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• Many of the questions take the form of multiple choice with options. At times the options provided are humorous and then when applied we discover that while we would laugh at Jonah if he did something, we actually do the same thing ourselves. Use the multiple choice answers to create discussion. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  7. 7. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Here are the Key Teaching Points from the lessons:• Jonah 1:1-3 God says "effect." Jonah says "defect”• Jonah 1:4-5 God sent lightning rods. Each man sought his gods.• Jonah 1:5-8 Jonah closed his eyes while the men asked "why?”• Jonah 1:9-13 Jonah says "throw" and the sailors say "row”• Jonah 1:14-17 The sailors picked up and threw and the storm was through.• God didnt just stop the storm he wanted Jonah to reform. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  8. 8. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• Jonah 1:17 Jonah didnt follow so God told the fish to swallow• Jonah 1:1-17 Though Jonah ran away, God used him anyway!• Jonah 2:1-9 For disobedience Jonah prayed, and thus Jonah prayed.• Jonah 2:10 Im sure Jonah stunk when the whale blew chunks• Jonah 3:1-9 Jonah finally went and Ninevah repents• Jonah 3:10 Ninevah repents and God relents http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  9. 9. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com• Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah says "NO!" because Gods anger is too slow.• Jonah 4:4 Jonah puts up a fight. God says you have no right.• Jonah 4:3,8 Jonah would rather not try. Hed rather give up and die.• Jonah 4:6 Jonah sat down to whine and God sent a vine• Jonah 4:6 While Jonah sat in shade, his bad attitude began to fade.• Jonah 4:5-8 Jonah sat in comfort to wait so God sent fishbait.• Jonah 4:9-11 Jonah is still mad so God points to the lad. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
  10. 10. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.comEach key point takes the form of a rhymeand is applied both to Jonahs situationand to ours.I have created it an ebook (PDF) formatthat includes both a teachers guide andstudent worksheets. The Teachers guideexplains the options and comes with anadditional commentary on the book ofJonah. The student worksheets are foundat the end of the teachers guide and areintended to be printed on three sheets ofletter-size paper (front and back) andfolded in half. Make as many copies as youneed of the teachers guide and studentworksheets. It couldnt be easier! http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html

  13. 13. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Whats a resource like this worth?• This is a complete Bible Study Series that is reproducible - you can make as many copies as you need for your camp. Most camp materials from bookstores require you to buy one copy for each youth at the camp. Depending on the size of your youth group, it could cost you 100s of dollars!• I have been paid US$500 to write customized camp Bible study materials like this for church youth camps that were similar in format to this study on Jonah. http://www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/order5.html
