Jesus Camp follows several young children as they prepare to attend a summer camp where the kids will get their daily dose
of evangelical Christianity. Becky Fischer works at the camp, which is named Kids on Fire. Through interviews with Fischer,
the children, and others, Jesus Camp illustrates the unswerving belief of the faithful. A housewife and homeschooling mother
tells her son that creationism has all the answers. Footage from inside the camp shows young children weeping and wailing
as they promise to stop their sinning. Child after child is driven to tears. Juxtapose these scenes with clips from a more
moderate Christian radio host (who is appalled by such tactics), and Jesus Camp seems to pose a clear question: are these
children being brainwashed?
