    It`s actually from a protest site about child soldiers.

    That`d be a cool camp though.

    Now that I know that it`s actually to protest child soldiers, it`s actually rather cute, you know. The image of that girl with a gun was rather startling.

    I recently just finished reading a book about a child soldier (12 year old) from the sierra leone region. This is very scary.
    Visit this site http://www.campokutta.com/
    and then this http://www.warchild.ca/campokutta.html

    It all about awareness

    what goes through a parents head when they decide to have their child go to a camp that teaches children to throw grenades and shoot automatic rifles? it`s probably only a matter of time before some kid freaks out when he pulls the grenade, doesn`t throw it and we end up hearing about the tragedy of numerous children dying at a summer camp.

    There would actually be a way to make that camp a reality if the grenade, landmine and bullets would all be fake, like holywood props or paintball material.

    Would be really fun but still a little bit dangerous if you ask me.

    They use pyrotechnics in real life guns and explosives are less flashy.
    @XBOY: "LOL if they where arab you people would call them terrorist!"
    Yes I would because thats how they`re made it`s nothing new Hitler used Hitler youth as soldiers because they found at around 16 boys fought best because they were more fearless probably because they didn`t have as good of a concept of death.

    When I was 18, I went to do my national service in Cyprus. - We did all that stuff that they were showing at `Camp Okutta` for real.

    Funny thing is, I know that it is a fake camp to protest against kids in war-torn countries, but I have to admit, I enjoyed doing my national service, and got a lot out of it. In fact, I honestly believe that if the UK had a compulsory national service, that it would solve a lot of problems with bored kids hanging out at malls, or earning ASBOs.

    With that in mind, I`ve got to say that the warchild campaign doesn`t see the full picture, or appreciate that other cultures might see things in a different way. If you can instill an element of respect, discipline, responsibility, authority, pride and common sense into a child without robbing them of their childhood, and still letting them have fun as well as blow things up, then let them.

    I want to see more Camp Otukka, and wouldn`t have a problem sending my kids there!

    NO NO NO D:
    Lol, well, as long as it was male only :P

    I understand that it could be effective for the `ASBO` teens, but installing a national service for EVERY teenager is not necessary.
    The ASBO teens only make up a small percentage of the teenagers, it`s just blown out of proportion by the media.

    we should send all those troubled teens to the camps. Then we wouldn`t have all these gangs.

    A very nicely put together PSA, the website is very informative, but in an easy to handle interface.

    If anybody`s intrigued by this, I highly recommend the documentary Invisible Children. It`s about child soldiers in Acholiland (Uganda). This was the organization that received the proceeds from the benefit battle of the bands I co-hosted this year. It`s a really sad documentary, and it will really open your eyes.
