This is a fun activity that also raises money for the youth group. We have a very small youth group, so I don’t know how well it would work for larger groups.
Three weeks before we go apple-picking, we pre-sell the 5-pound bags of the types of apples we know will be available. Then, on a Saturday, we drive to the You-Pick Farm and pick apples. We buy them in 20 pound bags and also get a 10% discount for being a youth group, and then go back to the church and repack and label everyone’s order in 5 pound bags. All the old ladies of the church love the oppurtunity to have fresh apples for pies!
