Freethinkers Camp In UK

From The Guardian, via The Reason Project

Stein said the camp was not only for the offspring of atheists or “irreligious” parents. “It is a secular alternative open to children of parents of all faiths and none,” she said.

“It is not about changing what they think, but the way that they think. There is very little that attacks religion; we are not a rival to religious camps.”

The £275 all-inclusive adventure break is supported, Stein says, by a one-off donation from the Richard Dawkins Foundation, but he is not personally involved.

Camp Quest UK’s website says its counsellors and volunteers will lead activities teaching eight to 17-year-olds “about science, free thought and humanist principles. Activities cover critical thinking, science, history, human rights and ethics”.

The camp will have a Darwinist theme because is the 200th anniversary of naturalist Charles Darwin‘s birth.
