Teens practically live online, so a youth camp promo video is a wonderful way to reach out to them in a way that’s not just likely to get seen but also likely to grab their attention.
The Bible calls us to spread the Gospel (Mark 16:15), but the way our ancestors did this doesn’t really translate well today. If there’s ever been a time that the younger generation needs to hear about the Word of Jesus Christ, it’s today.
Teens are living in a world where their self-image is shaped by likes and masked in filters, so showing them a truth that they can use to rise above the pressures of an increasingly egocentric society is critical.
Here are 15 amazing youth camp promotional videos to draw inspiration from!
Something to remember as you watch these: It doesn’t matter if you have a full video team or shooting your youth camp promo video on your smartphone. The bottom line is, you should be doing it! More info on this is at the bottom of this article.

5 Reasons Your Youth Camp Needs A Promo Video
Connect In a Way Teens Are Comfortable With
Print ads still work in the right setting, but nowadays teenagers are glued to their smartphones and tablets. The best way to reach them is by engaging on a visual level.
A video that showcases your youth camp’s highlights and shows teens that it’s not just about memorizing scripture, but meeting new people, making new memories, and discovering exciting new experiences is an ideal way to connect on a level they’re familiar with.
Embrace the Times and Show the Timelessness of the Gospel
Society makes it difficult for youth to disengage from everything going on around them and feel equally interested in the church. Outdated approaches and methods have created a chasm between many teenagers and Christ.
A youth camp promo video can demonstrate that Christianity comes in many forms and can be just as miraculous and life-changing to them as it’s preached about during Sunday sermons.
Reach New People
Many youth camps have a highly specific demographic, but it’s time to broaden your horizons and reach outside the walls of your church’s community. A well-done youth camp promotional video that isn’t boring but looks like a great time and poses some thoughtful questions has the potential to attract an entirely different crowd.
Your youth camp is one-of-a-kind, but that probably won’t come across to most people who stumble across your site or read a flyer. A promotional video gives you the opportunity to show your church’s unique spirit to reach people instead of just telling them about it.
Making a video aimed at teens will require you to work with ones already active in your church. Drafting, filming, and producing a youth camp promotional video is an all-hands-on-deck endeavor, and if there’s anything that can bring people closer together, it’s fellowship and teamwork.
A Call to Action for Your Youth Camp Promo Video
Start recording awesome moments at your youth camps NOW! You can use the footage for future videos. Record testimonials (reviews) from excited youth and adults alike.
Do NOT get caught up with the “is my video good enough” loop. I can tell you from experience, that if you do this you will end up recording nothing. Do your best this year and you will see that your youth camp promo video will get better with each event.
