A Green Country camp that was in the center of a controversy over a fundraiser is teaching kids about science this week.
Organizers for Camp Quest were holding a fundraiser at a Broken Arrow restaurant in April, when the restaurant's owner learned it was a camp for non-religious kids and asked them to leave. Despite that dust up, dozens of children are spending the week outdoors with like-minded friends.
Haydn Kirkpatrick is 16 years old and said she's been waiting all year for this one week.
"It's the best time of my life," said 16-year-old Haydn Kirkpatrick.
She said it's the only time she can relax and not worry about being judged. Kirkpatrick is an atheist, something that she says doesn't come easy, living in Oklahoma.
"A lot of the times I feel like I can't tell people, because I feel like they won't be friends with me or their parents will think, 'Oh, I don't want them to hang out with that child. She's an atheist.' Because it tends to turn into a curse word," she said.
