Summary of Spiritualist Camp

Saturday night while posting at the B&B, I lost my dial-up connection and I knew I forgot to input my two cents about the Spiritualist Camp. Although calming and relaxing, it felt like a cult. I have some knowledge of cults, I was raised as a Catholic and have had first-hand knowledge with the Church Universal Triumphant while working in Yellowstone.

The tour of the Camp, however, reminded me of the tour of the Mormon's Temple Square in Salt Lake City, UT. The guides were extremely different - the one at the Camp smoked the entire time and I know that's something Mormon girls don't do (at least not in front of heathens), however, the similarities were in how the guides were trying to be convincing that their "religion" is the right one. In both cases, they were trying to convince themselves.
