Summer Camp Explores Religions

Religious strife has dominated global headlines in recent months, with images of violence and destruction in the Middle East. But at a summer camp in New Hampshire, religious difference is something to celebrate and study.

The New England branch of the Jewish non-profit Anti-Defamation League is teaching teens to fight prejudice by learning about each other's spiritual traditions. Muslim, Jewish and Christian high school students from the Boston area, work with the Anti-Defamation League on projects that build interfaith understanding in their communities. The program, called "Camp If," that's short for inter-faith, begins with a week in the New Hampshire
woods.

This program aired on August 22, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
