Jesus Camp (2006) is a schlockumentary about a Pentecostal summer camp and the children that attend.

The documentary contains little to no narration, serving only to reveal the treatment of children in Evangelical Bible camps. It is a look inside the Conservative Christian view of the world, which contains an "Army of God" to "take back America for Christ."[1]

Directed and produced by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, it was nominated for a 2007 Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, only to lose to An Inconvenient Truth.[2]

After the release of the documentary, liberals vandalized the camp ground. As a result, the owner of the camp ground required that the camp be shut down. The camp director Becky Fisher has announced that she still plans to host the camp upon finding a new location.[3]
