Mt. Katahdin - Teen Camp 2011

This year was the first year that we have put on a 'teen camp' for the teens in our church. We were offered the use of a camp on Plunkett Pond in Benedicta, so we jumped on that opportunity and started organizing camp. I'm not an organizer, but my wife is, so together (also with Pastor Mike's help) we put together a 4 day camp with the theme being "Exodus." Each devotional came from the book of Exodus and we sought to see the many parallels between Exodus and the Christian life. Alicia and I took 4 teens, and also Pastor Mike (he just stayed for the climb). It was a great time.

One of the activities that we were privileged to do was climb Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park. Katahdin stands 5,268 ft high. It was quite a trip, but we all made it up the mountain. All of us, except one, are looking forward to doing the mountain again next year.

Mt. Katahdin is quite spectacular! I hope to do it again soon.
