RR™ was started by Dr. Darrel Ray, author of The God Virus: How Religion Infects Our Lives and Culture. RR is an organization dedicated to helping people navigate the path out of religion. After publishing his book, Darrel found a huge need for some kind of support group to help people deal with the aftermath of leaving their religion. Such a move often causes problems with family, spouses, children, even employers in some cases. RR is dedicated to helping people, NOT reindoctrinating them. We don’t care if someone has a god belief, what we are concerned about is the religion part of it. To learn more about Dr. Ray and issues around religion, look at his Youtube videos or read his book, The God Virus.
Camp Quest is the first residential summer camp in the history of the United States aimed at the children of Atheists, Freethinkers, Humanists, Brights, or whatever other terms might be applied to those who hold to a naturalistic, not supernatural world view. The purpose of Camp Quest is to provide children of freethinking parents a residential summer camp dedicated to improving the human condition through rational inquiry, critical and creative thinking, scientific method, self-respect, ethics, competency, democracy, free speech, and the separation of religion and government. Through our programs we seek to: Build a community for freethinking families; Foster curiosity, questioning, and critical thinking; Encourage reason and compassion as foundations of an ethical, productive and fulfilling life; Raise awareness of positive contributions made by atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, and other non-theistic people to our society; Promote an open dialogue about metaphysical questions that is marked by challenging each other’s ideas while at the same time treating each other with respect; Demonstrate atheism and humanism as positive, family-friendly worldviews.
