But will there still be archery and horseback riding?
The Daily Caller, reporting on a piece over at the Associated Press, is telling the world about a transgender day camp that is getting along quite “swimmingly” since opening its doors three years ago.
That’s right…a transgender day camp.
Rainbow Day Camp, which can be found in the San Francisco Bay Area, describes itself as being devoted to “gender diverse youth who are gender creative, transgender, gender non-binary or exploring both gender expression and identity,” and describes its vision, in part, as to be a place that “provides a safe space for the exploration of gender identity and expression.”
So, does that mean there is no archery or horseback riding?
Something else. It turns out there really isn’t an age that’s too young to begin exploring “gender identity and expression” at Rainbow Day Camp. The program admits campers as young as four years old.
“A decade ago, this camp wouldn’t have existed. Eventually, I do believe, it won’t be so innovative,” says Sandra Collins, camp founder. “I didn’t know you could be transgender at a very young age. But my daughter knew for sure at 2.” Indeed, Collins credits her daughter’s perceptiveness with respect to her own gender identity as the reason for starting the camp.
