Unicorns?

Atheist camp: now offering a fun-filled alternative to God. Apparently, there have been ongoing efforts for the last thirteen years to provide summer camps for "free-thinker" children. It would appear that anyone who does not subscribe to Atheism is a "constrained thinker," but that Atheists are free. Free from error, bias, judgment, or what? If only modern man could get it out of his increasingly thick and unused skull that destroying your foundations prevents you from building anything. Like it or not, we have certain things about us that we cannot change, and upon which we can build our lives only if we know them.
At the aforementioned camps, the campers are entered into a contest to win a prize for proving that unicorns do not exist. (These unicorns are continually referenced at camp, though the only proof of their existence is in a mythical book.) Oddly enough, no one has ever proved that the unicorns don't exist.
