The Tea Party: Now A Camp For Kids

on Tuesday, Jun. 14th

Looking for something to do this summer? The Tea Party is hosting a week-long seminar for children in Tampa, Florida, to teach them “important” principles.

According to the St. Petersburg Times, a Tea Party affiliate organization has created a summer camp called Tampa Liberty to teach kids between the ages of eight and 12 ideals such as “America is good,” “I believe in God,” and “I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.”

To learn these lessons, children perform ideology-reinforcing activities such as blowing bubbles and having others pop them, you know, to learn the effects of socialism.

“We want to impart to our children what our nation is about, and what they may or may not be told,” says Camp organizer Jeff Lukens.

The camp is scheduled to start in mid-July and 32 spots are still available. Are you signing up?
