Split into groups of 4-5 (make sure there's one leader in each group), and give each group a camera (or they can use their phones if they want).
Draw up a list of things / objects / situations they need to try to capture on film. Be creative with the list - make sure you include some simple tasks, but also some trickier things to find (or do).
Allocate points to each item depending on the difficulty.
|10||A red four wheel drive|
|20||Members of your group squashed into a public phonebox (if you can find one!)|
|20||A members of your group on a swing|
|30||A member of your group shaking hands with an old man|
|5||A McDonalds sign|
|30||A member of your group behind the counter at McDonalds|
|30||A member of your group holding a cat|
|5||A stop sign|
|10||A personalized numberplate|
|5||Members of your group at a bus stop|
|5||Members of your group on a pedestrian crossing|
|30||A member of your group in a swimming pool|
|10||Your whole group 'planking' in a park|
Be sure to set a time limit when people need to meet back. Tally up the points and whomever has the most is the winner! If you have time, share the photos on a big screen.
Other variations include using a video cameras (rather than still photos), or tagging photos on Instagram using a predetermined hashtag, and/or tweeting on Twitter for 'live' updates during the night.
Make sure to add all the photos to Facebook or your youth group web site!
