Lost on a Deserted Island is a fun icebreaker for VBS or youth ministry. Our Vacation Bible School program includes a middle school age group. For this group we create our own program. We always start the first day with some simple teambuilding activities like this one.
Guard the Treasure is an active game for youth which can be played in a relativity small indoor area. One youth guards the “treasure” while the thieves try to steal it.
Mutiny is a game which I have also heard called “human pinata”. In this game, the little pirates chase around the captain and steal his candy. This is a great outdoor game for VBS or youth group. If you play this for a themed vacation bible school or youth ministry meeting, have the captain dress up if possible.
Recycling activities for kids help youth understand the importance of taking care of God’s creation. We did a recycled raingutter regatta at our middle school VBS last year. Many of the student said this was their favorite activity of the week.
Wild Wet Wiffle Ball is a fun summer option for a youth group game. It is just like regular wiffle ball, only wetter.
Davy Jones Locker is a simple game for young children at Vacation Bible School or church camp. In this game you fish men and treasure out of the sea. Even the youngest children at VBS will enjoy this one. Everyone gets to keep whatever they fish out. #ShipwreckedVBS #VBS #campgames #churchcamp
