Summer Activities for Teenagers

Girija Shinde
Summer vacations can be long and boring if one does not have any specific plans in mind. Read on to know some of the coolest summer activities for teenagers which will convert your holidays into a fun ride.
Students look forward to spending a gala time during their summer vacations. After all, it is the time when kids have full freedom and when parents do not restrict them from doing anything. The planning for vacation goes on for a long time, but the enthusiasm disappears in just a week after it starts.
That is because sleeping, fooling around, watching television, and playing video games also become a routine after a few days. Especially for teenagers, as they do the same things every vacation. What they need is some cool summer activities that not only provide entertainment, but are also a learning experience.

Fun Activities


Summer is a great time to explore your surroundings. Gather your friends and go for a day trek to a nearby location. It can even be a picnic plus trek! 
Make a list of all the trekking spots around your city and visit each one during the vacations. By the end of the holidays, you will have developed a new hobby. There are also many trekking groups that visit difficult and remote trekking locations. If you wish to have an adventurous vacation, you can join such a group.

Music Video

Teenagers and music go hand in hand, as tween and teens spend most of their time listening to music. Instead of just listening to music, why not try to make your own music video this summer. 
You don't need to have expensive systems for it; just a single instrument and a video camera is enough. In fact, try to make a video that is different from the typical videos by making full use of your creativity. Who knows, you might just discover a hidden artist in yourself!


Summer vacations are the best time to learn how to dance. This is one skill that every person should acquire, especially teens. 
 And besides, dancing is fun. Also, everyone has a natural tendency to make some movements in response to music, and learning how to dance simply provides some easy and fun techniques to do so. You can opt for a cha-cha, slide, or street dancing, depending on your interest.


Vacation is the only time when you get a chance to enter the magical world of books. There is hardly anything that can be done in hot summer afternoons, so grab an interesting novel and start reading. 
It might take a little time to find your genre, so experiment with different types of books. Teenagers generally like thriller, romance, or fantasy novels. Even comics are fun to read. If you cannot buy books, you can still read them online for free.

Innovative Activities

Why not create something yourself? The joy of making something innovative by using your own efforts and imagination is unmatchable. Creating something is one of the most interesting activities for teenagers.
 Now, what to create will depend entirely on your interests. For example, girls who are interested in fashion can buy old fashion magazines and try creating dresses with the help of it. You can also make some science fair projects during the vacations.
These were some of the best summer activities for teenagers. Cooking, camping, learning a musical instrument, etc., are some other fun activities that you can try. So, now that you have some good ideas at hand, call your friends and decide which activity to undertake immediately.
