ACLU sues Virginia over nude teen camp

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing to keep Virginia from banning a nude summer camp for teens. Virginia passed a law in March that effectively shuts down White Tail Park, a weeklong residential camp for eleven to 18-year-olds. The ACLU filed a lawsuit in federal court, saying the law violates the constitutional right to privacy. The group's Virginia director says according to the law's logic, legislators would be able to prevent children from things like swimming, playing baseball or riding a bus. Virginia's attorney general has said nudist teen camps could attract pedophiles and child pornographers. The American Association of Nude Recreation says the camp is the first of its kind in Virginia, and only the third in the nation.
