Jesus Camp

For a summer back in '94 I worked at a Christian camp. Though it was nothing like Jesus Camp we probably did some similar things as what will probably be shown on this film (I have yet to see it, but I want to). Having spent the better part of a decade working in both youth and young adult ministries I do often ask myself an I doing too much to try to push my faith onto these guys or too little? Sadly, it's just as easy manipulate adults as it is children. I do not want to give any sort of judgment for this film one way or another without having seen it. If it comes around my area I'll make sure to do so.

I, too, want to see this film. I don't want to make up my mind until I see it, but the previews do look a little radical.

As a parent, based on the previews alone, I don't think I would send my kids to that camp. I am fine with my children learning about Christianity, but I do not want them taught a political agenda. I even try not to push my own political opinions on them.

I guess we'll have to watch to find out.

I saw a short clip of this on the net and have to say that it weirded me out a bit. Then again, editing can play a major role in that. I too worked at a Christian camp for years (6 in fact) and we had all ages 7-18. I wonder with selective editing and out of context shots if my camp experience might look a bit distrubing. The part I find interesting is that this is even a topic of a film, that someone sought out to make a statement about it.
