20 Fun Games for Virtual Youth Group or Small Group Meetings

Fun and creative youth group games to play on skype, zoom or any video call app

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has had a global impact to the way people are meeting with social distancing and self-isolation practices in place. Churches, small groups and youth groups are quickly adapting and "virtual youth groups" are becoming commonplace.

While virtual youth group meetings will never be able to fully replace physicial face-to-face events, they are still a great way for leaders and kids from youth groups to stay connected. Talking, reading, singing and praying will obviously work fine via video chat - but what about games (another key ingredient in a youth group meeting)?

We've put together a list of 20 youth group games that are ready-made for video calls over skype or zoom at your next virtual youth group meeting.
