As youth group leaders know, it can be a very challenging job to teach, inspire, guide, mentor and reward the good behavior in today’s youth. Whether you are a youth pastor or a youth organization director, it can be challenging to successfully attract and keep the targeted youth in your area or even reward existing members. To get and to keep their attention, you’ll need a high level of interest, interactive entertainment and the ability to associate something FUN with your church or organization.
Whether it’s a small youth event or a huge community festival-fund raiser, you want to offer fun activities that keep the youth wanting more! Bouncy castles, inflatable games and other interactive items offer that cutting edge interactive entertainment experience. Games like the Big Glove boxing (bouncy boxing), Sumo Wrestling suits, Gladiator Jousting, Bungee Runs, Giant Slides, Mechanical Rides (such as rodeo bulls & surf simulators) are something that the average youth doesn’t have access to unless it’s at a fair or festival. Using this type of safe yet challenging equipment is something that can attract youth from all around your area. Are you planning a lock in? How about a Halloween Alternative Event? Or perhaps a New Year’s Eve Party? The object of all these type of events is not only to offer safe, Christian alternatives to outside events, but also to show that being part of a Christian Youth Group is anything but boring. There are two ways to offer inflatables and interactives to your youth. Most organizations start out by renting their equipment.
