Understanding a Spiritual Youth Camp as a Consciousness Raising Group: The Effects of a Subculture's Communication.
Schnell, Jim
This paper defines a spiritual youth camp as a consciousness raising group. The camp, founded in 1956 as a community church camp, has been independent of any religious denomination since disassociating from the founding community church in 1986. Communication processes are described as they relate to primary aspects of the camp experience. Primary aspects include the role of religion, utopian influences, self-examination, effects of the camp founders/directors, diversity, and camp activities. (Author/EH)
