Agreed - now that I've heard about this camp I want to get involved in it!

IMHO (I am Christian BTW) LA should support the technical/Linux side
of it, but to support the camp as a whole falls out of LA's scope and
is probably against the wishes of a large number of people here.

Also this doesn't necessarily even apply just for religion - IMHO LA
should only sponsor the *Linux* part of any camp.
