I have enjoyed many of the activities that my church back home has done. Back in high school, we'd go on beach trips, Airsoft/paintball, and other general mayhem. The girls tried to talk us into salsa dancing. We had this one thing on Good Friday where after the service, we'd set up sleeping bags in the community building's dining area and rotate turns in a vigil, reading passages into the morning where people coming for the Holy Saturday services would then take over. It was a good bonding experience and one of my favorite memories from my youth group days.
Over last summer, some of us that were still in town before everyone started heading back to college or work went on a mountain hiking trip in the Mt. Hood wilderness area.

These squirrels are seriously not afraid of anything. If you put your gear down, they will try to look for food in it
But the thing that I liked best is an annual ski trip up to Mt. Hood in the winter. One family at our parish is part of a co-op lodge on the mountain, and we crash there for three days during ski season.
What are some of the activities that you have enjoyed at your churches? Leave comments; this should be interesting since everyone has their own background.
