Every year I do shirts for my camp cabin recreation competitions. My students love them. I keep the design a secret until we arrive at camp and hand them out. I also like to taunt them with a fake “reveal” a couple of days before camp to help get them excited and frustrated that they have to wait. Gotta have fun in youth ministry, right?

BTW: Several churches, schools, etc. use me to print their shirts, banners, wall decals, etc. That’s how I support myself doing youth ministry. If I can do jobs for you, please send a message to me at dbeckner@volunteeryouthministry.com.
