    With a proper chaperone, of course. In the Boy Scouts, they have those.

    no vote, the options are too controlling
    I have not looked at any brochures, I have talked with no-one.
    Hard to imagine, how I could know about this before-hand ....it makes no sense....to me...anyway.
    So, to be 100% honest, IF I knew about this "horrible" condition, then NO, my offspring would NOT go to this particular camp..
    Why ?
    And, if my daughter still wanted to go to this camp, homosexuals or no..., then, that would be her choice..
    I do NOT want "homosexually" to be part of any camp's offerings, I fear that it would be, given the state of our people.

    That's like saying you don't want "redheads" or "Jews" to be part of your camp's "offerings."

    The mere presence of a homosexual doesn't mean they are "offering" homosexuality. It just means they aren't excluding homosexuals from the camp. Homosexuals have the same need for learning and community as everyone else.

    As opposed to camps where their are certain members who preach non-stop antigay arguments who themselves are closet gays?
    I'd never send my offspring to any camp where hatred of others(social conservatism) is the primary agenda of that camp !

    If I had a son, sure. I have two daughters, I'd let them go somewhere where there were open lesbians, does that count?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Agree...
    The homosexual is different in the brain.....the most important thing of one's make up.
    Solution = acceptance, tolerance...

    Not me, unless I knew boys and girls would have separate sleeping quarters. Call me old fashioned but I would lot let my little girl share a tent with a boy even if there was a chaperone in a nearby tent (possibly fast asleep themselves and certainly not staring at them all night, which itself would also be troubling). Hard for me to get my mind around how any parent would be okay with that but to each his own.

    I wouldn't let my kid go to any camp that didn't have some kind of reasonable policy in place where a child should not be alone with any adult, period, but I don't care if the adults are gay or not.

    Honestly, just speaking based off of all the newstories I've heard through the years, I'd be alittle bit more relieved if the camp leaders were openly gay. I really can't remember any story where an openly gay person abused a child. The only ones I can remember are married guys, often with kids of there own, or guys who ardently claim to be straight as an arrow.

    The mere presence of a homosexual doesn't mean they are "offering" homosexuality. It just means they aren't excluding homosexuals from the camp. Homosexuals have the same need for learning and community as everyone else.Absolutely true...
    I have this fear that a camp could cater to the homosexual too much and then ruin the experience for the child..
    Imagine(as an example) that only swimming, and nothing but swimming was on the camps schedule of activities...24 hours per day this becomes old after a few days....
    But, of course, I doubt if any camp or like facility will openly state " gays accepted " or something like that....
    I do not care about the presence of gays....I highly doubt if I would even know about it.....and gays have the same rights to attend the same camp...

    I simply do not want a camp where "homos rule" - if there is such a thing....

    Point being we are not talking about kids we are talking about adults
    I go to a church where men are not allowed to be nursery workers, gay or straight. I don't think teenaged boys should be allowed to babysit non-familial girls, gay or straight.
