Becky Fischer’s Kids on Fire Camp—the subject of the controversial new documentary Jesus Camp—has announced that it will be shutting its doors in the wake of vandalism and negative public response.
Fisher’s camp—located in Devil’s Lake, North Dakota—has been the subject of much attention since the film’s release, with many critics and moviegoers denouncing the camp’s methods as militant and inappropriate. Upon the film’s release, the Kids on Fire camp site and the local Assemblies of God church were both vandalized, with damages at the camp totaling $1,500. Says Fischer about her decision to close down her camp: “I have a responsibility to keep the children safe.”
We agree, Becky. It’s about time you stopped f’ing them up.
