An atheist summer camp for children set up in Somerset is to offer a "godless alternative" to religious camps.

The 24 places on Camp Quest UK, which are presently being held near Bath, have already been booked up.

Organisers said the purpose of the camp was to encourage critical thinking and provide children with a summer camp "free of religious dogma".

The camp, supported by scientist Richard Dawkins, plans to expand after receiving hundreds of inquiries.

The event has been set up by Samantha Stein, a postgraduate psychology student from London.

She said: "It is not about changing what they think, but the way that they think.

"There is very little that attacks religion, we are not a rival to religious camps.

"We exist as a secular alternative open to children from parents of all faiths and none."

"On the back of this success, there will now be more camps setup around the country.
