Like other parents, we’re sending our child to his favorite summer camp this week — swimming, fishing, archery, crafts, folk singing. There are camps of all sorts — here’s a tea party summer camp for kids:
“Some kids trot along trails at horse camp over the summer. Others build volcanoes at science camp, learn to strum a guitar at music camp, or scale 20-foot walls at rock-climbing camp. And in Tampa, Fl., children will learn about free markets and limited government at Tea Party camp.
“The Tampa Liberty School is hosting this week-long, half-day camp (July 11-15) for the first time. The program is modeled after vacation bible school and run by parents and volunteers from a Tea Party group called Tampa 912 Project. Campers will learn about our nation’s founding principles: personal responsibility, faith, courage, hard work, reverence and thrift.
“‘We want to impart to our children what our nation is about, and what they may or may not be told,’ conservative writer Jeff Lukens, who is organizing the camp, told TampaBay.com.
“Lukens added that he’s unfamiliar with the public school curriculum, but, ‘I do know they have a lot of political correctness. We are a faithful people, and when you talk about natural law, you have to talk about God. When you take that out of the discussion, you miss the whole thing.’
“Lukens and his staff will deliver their Christian message through fun, hands-on activities.”
