I’m not a big fan of overwhelming kids with a bunch of rules the first night of camp, but I get definitely understand why communicating rules are necessary. This weekend I’ve been speaking at a camp in NY and I enjoyed watching how the leadership team chose to communicate their rules. It’s a clever video (and like most youth ministry videos, it’s at least a 1 minute too long) that reveals an easy-to-steal idea.

I really enjoyed this time-elapsed video showing students the amount of work that went into putting the stage design together. It’s pretty remarkable amount of hours that some adult volunteers did to make this happen. Also an easy way to expose adults to youth ministry–some of these guys came to camp just to use their gifts to build the set and are now interested in being part of the youth ministry team. Good leadership move!
