Quick Help & Hint #2: "SEAT SWITCHERS" (trip/travel)


LOOKING FOR A WAY TO BOND YOUR GROUP, BREAK UP SOME OF THE CLIQUES, AND MAKE THIS SUMMER'S MISSION TRIP OR TRIP TO CAMP MORE INTERESTING??

MAKE IT A SEAT SWITCHER TRIP!





During your summer trips, as you travel to and from camp, missions trips, and activities. Make it part of the trip, that every time a vehicle pulls over everyone, but the driver must switch seats.

Every rest stop, food stop, or location every person has to sit by at least one new person. Even make intentional stops a couple times, just to make everyone switch. It will allow students to get to know more than just their friends and will quickly build community.


I have done this for years on and off, it  is also especially great for those shuttles back and forth from service project locations on mission trips.

  1. We always do this, for that same reason. Great for breaking up cliques.
