Salt Lake Cemetery Activity

Ever wondered what you could do for an activity - that is so "out of the box"?  Visit a cemetery!  That's right - the Salt Lake City Cemetery.  This is where many of the recent, and past, prominent church members are buried - including Brigham Young, Eliza Snow, President Hinckley, and more.
For a big youth activity - like youth conference or girls camp - have actors at a few of the graves in costume portraying that particular person thru stories, scriptures, music, etc... This could be a very powerful experience for your youth group.

  1. We did this for youth conference two years ago. We had our kids research a prophet and when we got to their site they told about the things they had learned. It was really a great activity and everyone learned a lot.
