    I can't make it but I saw this one last year, incredibly disturbing. And also ripe for satire, it's almost so horrible you have to laugh to keep from screaming at the screen. How wackos like this can take money for child abuse, and share my oxygen is appalling. The camp really was a sanctioned cult. Worth seeing at least once.

    This film should not be missed! I saw it a couple of years ago and WAS APPALLED. Dennis Horvitz was there and he was LIVID at the mistreatment of children in this camp by their religious teachers. One little boy, probably about 5, lay on the floor screaming with fear about hell. (Dennis is active in SNAP, the group advocating protecting children against abuse.)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
