    Ah yes only the nazi have political camps!

    Teen Age Republicans or "TAR" is a political youth organization that is an official auxiliary to the United States Republican Party. There are various TAR clubs throughout the United States, at county and state levels. TAR has a presence in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, and has membership in the tens of thousands. Clubs are organized on and off campus into middle school, high school, home-schooled, county and city clubs.[citation needed] The oldest recorded Teen Age Republican Federation is in South Dakota. This Federation was formed in 1960.[1]

    TAR provides support to the Republican party and its candidates. TAR members work across the United States to perform community service, develop leadership skills, gain first-hand knowledge of practical political process and apply all these to sway elections in the favor of the Republican Party.[citation needed]

    [edit] OrganizationTAR is organized in chapters across United States. There are federations in most states, and clubs in counties and high schools. The organization structure consists of:

    National TAR office - serves only two main functions:
    1.provide information on existing clubs and/or provide resources and advice on starting a club in areas that do not already have one
    2.organise the national Teenage Leadership Conference (TLC) and awards ceremony
    State TAR federations - similar to the Republican Party, the majority of TAR activity takes place on the State level:
    receive some financial support from their state Party
    most have an elected executive board with its own constitution
    organise statewide events (e.g. summer camp, mock legislative sessions)
    County and Local Clubs - sub-ordinate to state organizaions
    formed at county, city or school level
    similar structure and activities to state federations, albeit at a more local levelhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Republicans
    Hmmm????

    Of course they don't. Those camps are their side.

    Can only agree fully with this.

    And these camps are just like most other summer camps I have ever been on except they have political debates (often with other parties present as well) and workshops, both political and non political... plus of course parties and loads of fun

I can't imagine that anyone would actually defend his asinine behavior other than for partisan reasons.
    Actually, I'm not speculating, but I know you're going to go off on whatever tangent the voices tell you to.

    The 68 victims killed on Utya were participating in a "youth camp" for the Labor Party. What happens at a Norwegian political youth camp?

    Debates, lectures, and regular summer camp stuff. Approximately 700 Labor Party enthusiasts between the ages of 14 and 25 descend on Utya every year during summer break. The four-day event receives national media attention, and prominent Labor politicians make a point of addressing the group.

    When do you teach them that level of arrogance? That must be a long camp.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    But, instead, it came in the form of Liberalism and is led by the messiah, Barack Obama.
