Presbyterians Stage Fake Atheist Raid on Youth Camp

At Camp Ojibway, a Presbyterian youth camp, church leaders stage a fake "atheist militia" raid to teach campers about life in atheist societies. Six men, one armed with a shotgun, barge in and tell the 60 youths that they had to stop practicing their religion and return to their cabins.

Camp director Warren Camp, who is also a public school teacher in Richfield, says:

"Our intent is to make kids grapple with their own faith, so they wouldn't be just saying what they've heard from their parents."
