Social Events: Family Photos

Contributed by: Carol Trotter, Diocese of Christchurch

familyphotosThis photo challenge will get your group working together and thinking creatively! Based around song titles and sayings, this is a great intergenerational activity – perfect for a church camp (but it works equally well with a youth group). Print these Instructions which contain the following information and 30 photo themes – you’ll need one copy for each group.


Your mission is to take group photos on the themes listed below (choose 10). Be as creative as you want.

  • Your whole group (except for the photographer) must appear in every photo.
  • You will need to take turns at being the photographer so that everyone is in some of the photos.
  • Tick/circle the photos you have taken.
