Summer Camp Explores Religions

This article is more than 13 years old.

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.
