socially-distanced

youth

Many of us are back in our buildings, but we still can't be together. What can we do while remaining distanced?

Updated 14/10/20

We can no longer cram in a phone box, but team photo challenges work really well in small groups which need to remain socially distanced. Here are some ideas for challenges to set. Do send me your best ideas.

Creative ideas:

You may have to wear masks indoors but young people could still gather round a fire pit outside to keep warm. Don't use a gazebo with a fire pit - what's the Worst Case Scenario? And always keep a fire extinguisher close at hand.

You may not be able to share food with the youth group, but you could still:

 

  • Have young people bring their own marshmallows to toast (one or two at a time round the fire pit might be best to encourage distance keeping)

  • Get individual portions of chips delivered

  • Ask an ice cream van to visit (yes, it's cold in winter, but is it ever too cold for ice cream?!)

Dave Thornton has written a hugely practical 392-page handbook as a resource for youth ministry. It's £10 to buy. You should be able to get it delivered anywhere in the world for under £20.
