On July 13, 2002 The Fresno Bee featured an article on "Camp Green Meadows, the annual Sierra gathering of Islamic youth and adults," in California attended this year by "nearly 250 Muslims... The five-day camp encourages Muslims in their faith and to be productive citizens... Classes and workshops this year focused on peace and ways to dispel stereotypes that link Islam with terrorism, especially in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States."
