Teen Summer Fun Ideas?

My friend and I are 15 and 16, we are looking for fun ideas to do during the summer with our friends (boys and girls). We have access to some driving. We would appreciate any ideas! Thank you.

Picnics in a local park, swimming, going for walks/hikes, just get together at somebody's house and sit around visiting, listening to music, dancing, playing board games. You don't need to drive in order to have fun. You can do all kinds of things within walking distance.

When I was young fun basically consisted of the kids walking the street on Saturday night. This was usually in groups of 2-4. Occasionally there was something else to do, but at that time Kids were kept so busy they didn't have to worry about having fun.

None of the kids had cars where I lived. It was very rare when they had access to the parent's car. We were also good at making our own fun, on our own, without being with any of our friends. Fun is whatever you make of what you are doing at the time. Just don't do things that will get you into trouble. In other words "look before you leap."

Check out opportunities to do fun "work"! Things like helping at Vacation Bible School, community projects like planting flowers and painting curbs can be lots of fun for teenagers (especially if you get to squirt each other with a hose), hold a car wash to raise money for your band/cheerleaders/charity etc, volunteer to read to kids at the local library and put on skits for them with your friends, organize a block party in your neighborhood.


After each one of these activities, have a jammin' picnic in a local park or pool, playing your own music (surely someone has speakers for their i-Pod!) and dancing, shooting hoops etc.

When you do have a car, visit some nearby "tourist" thing, attend fireman's carnivals and community days, go to free movies where you take a blanket and sit on the grass.

Most of these things are very low cost and can be a blast for teens who are good friends and like to hang out. Have a great summer! (and don't forget to spend a little time reading - that's a great get-away!)
