A History of Camp: Anyone?

I'm putting this up in faith. Just in case you've been longing for a brief historical overview of religious camps, here ya go.

Groups, churches and organizations have been running and conducting camps for decades now and during my two straight weeks of camp (high school then junior high), I became interested in the history. Why do we do these? Who started this stuff? I stumbled upon this article and thought maybe some nerd out there is interested too.
