Jun. 24–The middle schoolers who hope to spend Aug. 27 through Sept. 1 at the first session of Puget Sound Interfaith Youth Camp at Camp Seymour want more than the usual from their summer camp experience.
Sure, they want boating, campfires and hiking. They also want to talk about the Bible, the Torah and the Koran. They want to run around and be silly, and they want to discuss their faith and understand their friends’ beliefs.
There are 50 spots for boys and girls going into the seventh and eighth grades, and applications will be accepted until they are filled. The goal is to have an even mix of religions represented. The camp is free, though there is a refundable $50 application fee. (To find out more, click onto www.sound interfaithcamp.org.)
