Teens started the second day of camp with scripture reflections and small groups introducing them to each other and to the “Behold the Mystery” theme. They were sent out on Mission Adventure, where teens and chaperones had to complete different tasks to get clues and solve the mystery of what each “Agent of Change” did with what holy item at what holy place. After lunch, teens bonded over a game of flag tag and their choice of hiking, basketball, Frisbee golf, Ga ga, or rosary making. Since the teens protected their chaperones Monday night through the obstacle course, the chaperones got a chance to serve their teens by washing the feet of each teen during the night session. Once the group commemorated Christ’s washing of His disciples feet, it reenacted the Last Supper with Mass celebrated by Fr. Matt Williams followed by Adoration. Host Joe Chernowksi and musician Chris Taucar led the teens deeper into their faith.

The last full day of camp began with a skit, and Scripture. The middle of the day consisted of getting hot, sweaty, messy and muddy with flag tag, messy games, and the infamous mud pit. After getting cleaned up, the group attended Mass celebrated by guest priest Fr. Chris Dunlap. Walking out of the chapel, middle schoolers and chaperones were given their “Behold the Mystery” T-shirts and took their group photo. The night ended as all nights and weeks should end with prayer, praise and worship and Adoration.
Day three of “Behold the Mystery” Life Teen camp was full of fun and games and team-building activities such as low ropes, mountain boarding, paintball and flag tag. After playing in the sun all day, the teens and their chaperones learned of the mystery of Mother Mary and the of the saints. Joe Farris knew how to keep the teens’ attention with his stories and passion. Jackie Francois followed suit with her passionate voice and spirit during praise and worship and Mass.
