Overview

The documentary Camp Out joins Fish Can't Fly, God and Gays, and other recent films that examine the attempts of some left-leaning factions of mainstream evangelical Christianity to promote greater acceptance and understanding of male homosexuality. Bravo television veterans Kirk Marcolina and Larry Grimaldi (Boy Meets Boy) helm, thus interweaving the stylistic influences of reality television throughout the project. The two filmmakers hone in on the first all gay male Bible Camp, and on ten gay male adolescent attendees (all self-professed born again Christians). The young men in question are visiting the camp for the first time and attempting - per the camp's theme - to reconcile their sexual orientations with their shared belief system. This involves interacting over the course of several days with other gay Christian teens, and participating in such joint activities as fingernail painting and nighttime, bunkroom pow-wows where campers tell all. Grimaldi and Marcolina spend time acquainting the audience with each camper and his individual struggle(s). More broadly, the film also point toward the potential for harmony between Christians and gays by working in an interview with openly gay Lutheran pastor Jay Wiesner, that depicts his special ordination ceremony.
