Indoctrination-oriented activities are much rarer, but they happen, though they are usually associated with more cult-like organizations. Mainstream organizations from the Catholic Church to the Communist trade unions don't actually feel the need to behave in a cult-like manner precisely because they are mainstream (whose existence is accepted by society at large, even by those who don't share its values or goals).
I do not know what to answer here...
As for ideological camps in the summer, I went through a whole series, under family influence - organised by religious fundamentalists. The tendency of people who have lived in formerly Communist countries to prefer religion to politics seems to me mistaken. If you haven't tried it the other way round, don't knock it.
But of course, indoctrination whether religious or political is unacceptable.
