A "Bible" Camp for Atheists

I know. You atheists don't proselytize. You don't organize meetings, hold seminars, form support groups, or write books. And you certainly don't hold any beliefs based on faith. No, atheism is not like a religion in any way.

Still, if your kids are looking for a Bible camp experience without the Bible part, you might want to check out Camp Quest. The camp aims to:
  • Develop supportive communities for freethinking families

  • Foster curiosity, scientific inquiry, and critical thinking in young people to enable them to draw their own conclusions

  • Cultivate reason and empathy as foundations of an ethical, productive and fulfilling life

  • Provide a safe and fun environment for personal and social growth

  • Encourage exploration of the natural world

  • Promote open dialogue that is marked by challenging each other’s ideas while treating each other with respect

  • Raise awareness of positive contributions made by atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, and other nontheistic people to our society

  • Demonstrate atheism and humanism as positive, family-friendly worldviews
  • Bill Nye would be proud.
