Kirk Cameron movie inspires American faith tours

U.S. east coast faith-focused tours get a boost from inspired Kirk Cameron film Photo: Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 11, 2013Kirk Cameron’s recent movie, Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure (now on DVD) has inspired one tour company: American Christian Tours (ACT),  to package family-friendly east coast tours that survey the forefathers’ mission in founding America. Cameron is, perhaps, best known for his role as Mike Seavor on the long-running television comedy, Growing Pains.

Scheduled (October 15-22) and customized group tour itineraries take participants from Boston and Plymouth to New York City, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. These tours are nothing new for ACT as they have been organizing heritage tours to America’s sites for about three decades. But Dr. Marshall Foster, ACT’s director of education, partnered with Cameron on creation of the documentary film and the experience has brought some new color and focus to ACT’s student and family-friendly tours.

“We have always been active in the school and church group tour market,” said ACT president Sabrina Carlson. “Kirk directed the film to families because he –and we – believe the family unit is the foundational block of a successful society. So this naturally pairs with our tour mission, which is to reveal the true Christian history of our country that many have tried to erase over the years. The movie – and our tours – present the story that God’s hand has been on the history of our country.”
