Why is Camp Joshua important?
Camp Joshua is unique in two ways: first of all, it is a pro-life camp.

By coming to Camp Joshua, students learn that they don't have to be a "professional" pro-life advocate to be an effective and life-saving pro-lifer, and that there are practical ways they can live a pro-life lifestyle and help save babies.
