The name stood for "Welcome Back to Pleasant Surroundings"; the camp was 14 miles from Tacoma by car or three miles by boat. The pavilion was the showpiece of the camp and it contained a dining area, play and meeting rooms, and showers. A salt water pool was adjacent to the pavilion and the temperature was kept at a steady 65 degrees. (TNT 6-3-56, A-3) TPL-9190
