Looks like the Sam Davis Youth Camp is stepping up efforts to recruit children for their summer camp program. Any time an instructor proudly proclaims that participants will learn the “truth of history” you know that good old indoctrination is what is really taking place.
So, is this program right for your kids?
Today, General Cleburne’s words, quoted above, ring all too true. There is no question that the youth of today must run a terrible gauntlet, and that many are struck down along the way by one or more of the politically correct influences which flourish in our schools. Sometimes these youths are from the best homes, with strong families and religious training. With even the most conscientious parenting though, oftentimes in high school or college, even these best & brightest finally succumb to the liberal, politically correct view of history.
This summer, you can help turn the tide. For one week, our Southern young men and ladies (ages 12-20) will gather to hear the truths about the War for Southern Independence. This camp (named for the great young Confederate Sam Davis) will combine fun and recreation with thoughtful instruction in Southern history, the War Between the States, the theology of the South during the War, lessons on Southern heroes, examples of great men of the Faith, and for the first year, special programs and sessions for our Southern ladies!
I suspect that the central problem for institutions like this is that they are catering to an incredibly narrow clientele. This youth camp has all the trappings of a cult. The kids are entertained with water balloon fights, live fire demonstrations, horseback riding, etc. and along the way they are told that their way of life is being attacked. The younger participants are helpless in such an environment.
Glad to see that the kids are at least having a little fun on their summer vacations even if they are being taught to salute the Confederate flag.
