Who ever suggested that today’s 14-year-olds are TCFS* at camp? Tacoma defies this stereotype! They really do. It’s magical and I wish everyone reading this blog could teleport to Frost Valley and see Tacoma play our wild outdoor chair game called “Geronimo.” It’s hard to get good photos under the Geronimo Tent but I think we managed to capture the pure joy and fun game-fulness (is that a word) and willingness to be silly and just laugh that is at the heart of the summer camp experience for teens. Take a close look at these expressions. This is what kids should have at least for a weeks each summer–away from the pressures of school and of adult expectations. What a nice break!

*TCFS — of course = too cool for school; i.e., unreceptive attitude
