Jesus Camp is a 2006 documentary directed by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing about a Pentecostal/ charismatic summer camp for children who spend their summers learning and practicing their "prophetic gifts" and being taught that they can "take back America for Christ." According to the distributor, it "doesn't come with any prepackaged point of view" and tries to be "an honest and impartial depiction of one faction of the evangelical Christian community”.
On January 23, 2007, "Jesus Camp" was nominated for the 2007 79th Annual Academy Award (Oscar) for Best Documentary Feature. It lost out to Davis Guggenheim and Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth.
