Hollywood star Tom Cruise has sent his two adopted teenage children to Scientology summer camp while he films a World War II movie in Berlin.
Isabella, 14, and 12-year-old son Connor – his adopted children with ex-wife Nicole Kidman – have spent their summer at a camp near Portland, Oregon, run by the Church of Scientology.
A source told America’s Star magazine: “The summer camp is part of the Scientology’s ‘get them while they’re young’ campaign.
“While they will be enjoying horseback riding, swimming and all kinds of fun activities, some of their day is devoted to Scientology course work.”
Tom is a devout follower of the bizarre sci-fi cult and has been hailed by leaders of the faith as the “chosen one” who will spread the word of the religion.
The religion’s founder, American science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard, claimed extra-terrestrial beings were sent to Earth by intergalactic ruler Xenu, who then destroyed the aliens with hydrogen bombs in a volcano.
The aliens’ souls attached themselves to chosen humans, known as thetans, who will be one day be saved.
Isabella and Connor have been sent to the summer camp while Tom is in Berlin filming new World War II drama, Valkyrie. He has been joined by wife Katie Holmes and 16-month-old daughter Suri.
Nicole is currently in Australia filming new Baz Luhrmann epic Australia with Hugh Jackman.
