$6,000 for a summer camp? That's about six times more than you'd think it would cost for a week. Do they have caviar Wednesdays or hire active military units to fly in and pay for the Jet A.

gonzoduke: Your snowflake is a slut


I went to a co-ed Christian camp for the summer around that age (I had a good friend whose family was much more religious and he was going so I wanted to go to) and I can testify that almost every waking moment not occupied with various camp activities was spent scheming with my fellow male campers on how we could hook up with the female campers, or at least possibly see some of them naked.

Take a bunch of hormonal teenagers and put them out in the woods with minimal adult supervision and days spent in physical activity working those urges up, what do you expect to happen?

I think the camp certainly was out of line, if not just for expelling the girl for a makeout session, then for screaming and shouting at her when she was caught.

That being said, the parents are wackadoo if they think that this deserves the kind of damages they're asking.  If I were on the jury I'd be willing to award a pro-rated amount of the camp fee based on the time she was there, but that would be it.

Colleges don't need insurance for young kids, overnight supervision, uniforms, or a canoe for everyone. College students bring most of their own stuff, assume legal responsibilities, and are only there three times a week during business hours.

$1000 for a week of camp where your children are sent off is not unreasonable on the high end. Probably had electricity and laundry, too.

Yeah I agree on the 1k. Sending a pair of kids away for a week at 12k is some pretty uninspired parenting.  A lot of cool education and/or fun could be had for 12k.

Why not go for $600,000? The tuition was about $12,000. Transportation costs thrown in as well as accommodations for the kids during the missed camp time. Maybe the parents had other plans while the kids were at camp. Also, was the boy she kissed expelled as well? Sex discrimination? Maybe it'll teach the camp leaders not to go ballistic for kissing between a boy and a girl.

/Could have been two boys kissing or two girls, but I digress.

A 15-year-old Westport girl and her family have filed a civil lawsuit against an overnight summer camp in the Berkshire Mountains, alleging negligent supervision, breach of contract and emotional damages after the girl was expelled from the camp, allegedly for kissing a boy.

For all this trouble, I hope she got tongue.

Maybe she should have kissed a girl instead.

15? Hate to break it to the parents but she's already been tagteamed by the entire football team. Probably starting giving handjobs at 12.

Have you seen the average cost of weddings lately?

BTW, I'm getting a kick out of these replies since my just turned 13 year old just came back from 10 days of summer camp (same camp I went to when I was a young and stoopid idi10t).  Fortunately, I think I've raised her right and she's got a good brain and she uses it.
 
2013-07-29 10:59:08 PM  
Several people made a point of asking what happened to the boy involved. I'd be very interested to know that too. Was he hauled out in front of the camp and called all manner of names too? Not that he should have been mind you, but I'm betting there was a double standard here.

I doubt they actually yelled at her, that's just what her hormone controlled mind thought. What I want to know is whether the boy was kicked out too.

FTA:Arnold said her client, who had attended the camp for four years, maintains that the incident did not warrant immediate expulsion.

Oh. Well, that just settles everything.  I missed the part where it said the girl (or her mom?) owned and ran the camp, and thus was the one that determined what does or doesn't constitute expulsion.

There's nothing about the boy, probably because his parents aren't suing.  It could also be that they were from different camps, or different people were in charge of boys and girls, so that he wasn't subject to the same person's authority on the matter.   I'd say he's luckier that this girl's parent's are looking for criminal charges against him for being in a state of undress with their little snowflake (slutflake?)... Oh, but then they wouldn't have claim to try to get $687,000 from the camp.

The article was pretty specific on that point, as well as disclosure of private medical information. That she was slut shamed in front of the entire camp before being escorted off (by a cop I think?) is one of the things they're suing for specifically. I'll absolutely grant you that a girl that age is generally distorting reality through emo colored glasses at a rate unparalleled without copious use of hallucinogens, but that being said lots of witnesses make up for that. I'd be far more skeptical if it was based purely on an account between the girl and the camp coont.

The damages asked may be excessive, but if accurate ... it's pretty farked up.
