Religiously oriented camps have been around since almost the very beginning of organized camp. According to Jennifer Burch, M. Div., and Nancy Ferguson, M. Div., M. A. Ed., "Today, religious camp thrives in many forms, from conference-style youth assemblies to small-group rustic camps, day camps and travel camps, intergenerational and interfaith experiences, in a dazzling array of denominational and religious traditions."
Read more about the history of religious camps in the article "Religious Camps: Common Roots and New Sprouts," by Burch and Ferguson in the November/December issue of Camping Magazine.
