Camp Quest - Atheist Summer Camp
Cheers to ABC's Nightline for the great video!

Atheist Summer Camp Is Heaven on Earth for Nonbelievers

http://abcnews.go.com/US/atheist-summer-...Dd31qMkqTa

Most summer camps host kayaking, arts and crafts classes and campfires, but what makes Camp Quest Northwest different is that it is literally "beyond belief."

Located just north of Seattle, Camp Quest Northwest is a summer camp for atheists or children of atheists, self-described "freethinkers" or people not otherwise traditionally religious.

"We would encourage them to read, to go to church," said Chuck Wolber, one of Camp Quest Northwest's founders. "The best way to become an atheist is to study the Bible, and I definitely recommend the kids do that."

I watched it last night. I found some of the commentary and questions to be a bit biased or condescending. Still, I'm glad they did the bit.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

That's not at all expensive for a summer camp.

But it would buy a lot of pizza.Yes

That's great.

I have never understood summer camps... wtf is the point? You really don't get many of them over here, but they are constantly brought up in American TV shows. Hmm...

Once a year, the kids get farmed out to camps so that the parents can get out their gimp suits.
