I applaud these camps for allowing interfaith families entry. As a child in the 60′s I looked forward to going with my best friend to sleepaway camp. The camp, not listed here (in PA) disallowed my enrollment because my mother was not Jewish. I was 8 years old. It affected me greatly. Martin Luther King had died that year and it just seemed like discrimination. I became very disenchanted then, but I am actively Jewishly as an adult. I would have benefited greatly by going to sleep away with my friend, rather than ruining my take on her and her family and culture. Thank G-d for my parents who understood.
