‘Merica Club

August 31, 2012

Our Young Life team asked the seniors how they wanted to kick off the semester and it was unanimous, ‘Merica Club.

We’re still finalizing the details, but here’s our working list below. Please chime in and share your ideas in the comments section. Our first club is Sept 17th. Afterwards, I’ll post pics and let you know what went well and what didn’t.

Mixer Ideas

  • US Outline: teams form outline of US with their bodies laying on ground.
  • Contest for the most American attire

Game Ideas

  • Sunflower Seed Spittin’ Contest
  • Hot dog eating contest
  • Presidential Debates over silly topics
  • Accent Contest: Drawing states out of a hat and having to say a phrase with that state’s accent.

Song Ideas

  • Proud To Be An American
  • Star Spangled Banner
  • My Country Tis Of Thee
  • Party in USA
  • Born in the USA
  • Good Time


  • Sparklers: tunnel of seniors waving sparklers as underclassmen enter club
