On February 9, 2006 The Wayland Town Crier reported, "Committed to tolerance, a civil society and respect for different cultures and religious traditions, the Weston-Wayland Interfaith Action Group invites the public to hear teens describe their experiences participating in Camp IF. For one week each summer, a group of Christian, Jewish and Muslim teens gather at Camp Interfaith, also known as Camp IF, to learn more about each other’s cultures and beliefs... The teenagers at Camp Interfaith also participate in each other’s religious observances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday... Camp IF is a project of the Anti-Defamation League of New England. The Weston-Wayland Interfaith Action Group is sponsoring the event because the camp teaches about respect and different religions, said Barbara Holtz of Wayland, the Jewish co-chairwoman of the organization. Although they plan about four programs a year, this one is special because it targets youth."
