For Teens

From frustrating game to golden opportunity

I have attended a summer camp for Christian Scientists for five years now, and throughout those five years I have always been in the horse programs. For the past three summers, I have participated in the polocrosse program for high schoolers, where you learn the rules in order to play, and later on in the session you even participate in a real tournament outside of camp.

It was a spontaneous idea. My mom and I decided to go for a hike.

Horsemanship and healing

I find it amazing how God’s love is always present, always surrounding and protecting us. This summer, I went to a camp for Christian Scientists, where I got to ride a horse named Remington.

The whole picture

This past summer I was a counselor-in-training (CIT) at a summer camp for Christian Scientists. The summer was filled with new experiences, revelations, and lots of new chances to demonstrate Christian Science.

Peace and confidence on test day

Last April, as the end of the school year approached, I was feeling nervous about two upcoming AP (Advanced Placement) exams.   Although I had been preparing, I questioned this preparation and tried to cram in extra studying.

God’s care while scuba diving

Last year my mom, dad, brother Ali­stair, and I visited the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia. My dad and I planned to scuba dive.
