Jesus Camp Closes

While the controversial documentary “Jesus Camp” has inspired plenty of criticism and little box office success, the film has had one significant impact for the director of the camp depicted in the film, Becky Fisher: The camp, Kids on Fire, is temporarily shut down.

Fisher has been running her camp at a site in Devils Lake, North Dakota, that is owned by the Assemblies of God. However, after a recent vandalism attack in which windows were broken and the camp’s church was damaged, Fisher has announced her camp will not return to the Devils Lake location. The news doesn’t exactly seem to disappoint the campground’s administrator, Reverend Winston Titus, who has indicated in interviews that he would like the publicity surrounding the denomination’s facility–which rents its property to various church groups–to simply go away.


However, while the Devils Lake camp administration may be rid of Fisher, I am predicting that her problems will only continue. Fisher has not announced where she will relocate the camp–for obvious reasons–but sadly, I think this incident of vandalism will most likely be only one small chapter in an ongoing saga for Fisher and her campers, with more examples of intolerance and media hype breeding more intolerance and media hype.

    Maybe it is a good thing to relocate. Best Luck.
