Campers in Texas --Teens prepare to make a splash at a pro-life camp in Texas. Camp Joshua, a similar camp held Aug. 3-5 in Staunton, will include workshops and recreational activities, including swimming, campfires and a scavenger hunt.

Camp Joshua, held in Staunton Aug. 3-5, is sponsored by the Virginia Society for Human Life and the Life and Leadership Youth Camp Initiative, developed in part through National Right to Life. The camp is based on a model used in a number of states, including Texas, Louisiana and New York.

Olivia Gans Turner, president of the Virginia Society for Human Life and a parishioner of St. Timothy Parish in Chantilly, said the three-day program was developed in part as a response to young people’s growing, enthusiastic commitment to the pro-life movement. She said it’s the first camp of its kind in Virginia.
