There are plenty of different camps throughout the summer that high schoolers can be a part of, and this particular group of 10th through 12th graders are spending the week growing in their faith.

It's called "The Well", hosted by the University of Findlay and funded with the Lilly Endowment Inc.'s High School Theology Institute's Initiative, with the main goal of exploring the students' faith lives and how that intersects with other parts of their day to day activities and possible career choices.

"It definitely helps us here at the Findlay ReStore - we're really busy this part of the season with donations, customer service, so having every hand on deck that we can really helps," said Ted Spencer, manager of the Habitat For Humanity ReStore Findlay.

Students from all walks of life joined in on the Christian-based initiative with the hope of growing spiritually, socially, and in their community.

"Being able to have a strong foundation going into college is important, and then coming to Habitat for Humanity - it’s really nice just to be able to know that you’re here to serve others, this is what I’ve been called to do, spreading love and helping anyone in any way I can?," said Liana Burk.

"I was just hoping that I would have a stronger foundation with my faith, with everything kind of transitioning from high school to college, having my faith ss the foundation and knowing that that’s not changing, and getting to meet great people with the Campus Ministry Program - it’s just been an awesome experience and I’m really excited to see what happens next," said Jessica Lafontaine.

The camp also focused on asking contemporary issues that the teens may face and encouraging them to explore some theological traditions.
