Camp Inquiry 2015: To Believe or Not To Believe

Register now:
Camp Inquiry 2015 is August 2-8, 2015
Please email us for specific questions about camp.

Kids today navigate through a reality that previous generations could never have imagined. Popular culture, whether in the form of entertainment, chatrooms, or pseudoscience, is a turbulent and unpredictable sea. Too often, what seem to be beacons of light are nothing more than illusions: quick-fixes and easy answers just don’t hold up. What does?

How do we begin to address these questions that seem so unprecedented? Consider first that they are at root as old as time: who am I? Where do I fit in? How can I be a good friend, a good member of my community? How can I live with respect for the natural world?

In short, kids today are asking how to live a good life.

Too much for kids? We don’t think so. In fact, we think kids are uniquely situated to enjoy a new “Age of Discovery.” Where others may see turbulent seas and dangerous impasses, we see opportunities—to create, to forge new paths, to open new communications, to tell new stories. And the best part is, the tools have been around for ages: science, reason, and skepticism remain the best means by which to navigate these unpredictable waters.
