JESUS CAMP

Dir: Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady
United States / 2006 / 87mins

The film is a first-ever look into an intense training ground that recruits born-again Christian children to become an active part of America's political future.

A growing number of evangelical Christians believe there is a revival underway in America that requires Christian youth to assume leadership roles in advocating the causes of their religious movement. Jesus Camp follows a group of young children to Pastor Becky Fischer's "Kids on Fire Summer Camp", where kids are taught to become dedicated Christian soldiers in God's army and are schooled in how to take back America for Christ.
