Default Camping Light Question

Would a small light(GlowStick or Area LED) in a camp site tend to scare a bear away or attract his attention. I am talking about camping in the Rockies, wilderness areas. Please share if anyone have any experience.

I don't know that ANY kind of light will keep a bear away. It might actually attract one that has learned to associate food with humans. We camp a lot in bear country and have never been bothered. But, we always keep our food locked up inside our truck and in the refrigerator in the trailer. Same goes for items used to prepare food, such as our propane barbecue, pots and pans, dishes, etc.
