An unusual summer camp is the focus for this documentary from filmmaking team Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady. The North Dakota camp teaches kids Christian values, and the filmmakers show how they try to integrate these beliefs into their young lives. Regardless of the religious beliefs of the viewer, JESUS CAMP is sure to promote plenty of thought and discussion in its audience.
