TuteTibiImperes: 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.


And let's not forget the disclosure of privileged medical information entrusted to the camp staff to provide her requisite supervision.

Arnold also said Lein shared confidential information about the girl, telling other campers she suffers from anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and low self-esteem.

If true, Ms. Lein should never be allowed contact with another child again.

Okay, maybe that takes it a little overboard.

But surely her finances should be ended. 100% of her assets forcibly divested from her via the mechanism of the state used properly to vindicate the interests of its people in medical privacy.

And now that she's done it once, it's foreseeable she'll do it again. So if the camp wants to continue her employment knowing the massive liability it sets them up for, well, that's their prerogative.

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?

Rich people problems.

The fat camp I'm cooking for charges $6,400 for three weeks


You should cook them bacon, lots and lots of bacon. Then make them run three miles before they can have any.
/mmm bacon, is there any thing it can't do?

miss diminutive: 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.


... Tongue where?

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


$600,000 is a lot of money for something she can now rock forever. It's a great story. "I got kicked out of summer camp for making out with the hottest boy there. I'm the queen of parties!"

There's people who would pay to have a story like that.

Also, the only lawyer you can trust to tell the truth is one who's not involved with the case in question. I'm sure it wasn't as bad as they're claiming because they're suing for money. No one leads a lawsuit "Yeah, it wasn't bad at all. Pleasant even. But I'd like $600k anyway."

To be fair, I'd be pissed too if I paid $12,000 NOT to get laid.

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 11:24:44 PM  
Good. Those camp directors need to sweat and earn their pay.

(1) Do If I don't expel the girl maybe the parents will sue me for allowing her to get molested.
(2) If I do expel the girl maybe the parents will sue me for overreacting.

Decisions....decisions....

ThatDarkFellow: Every lawyer should get a 3 strike policy. On the third time they bring a case the courts rule ridiculous they lose their license.


Because a case involving malicious breach of medical privacy and intentional infliction of severe emotional distress on a child is "ridiculous."

If the privacy allegations here are true, this woman changed this girl. She will have difficulty being candid with health care providers for a long time, if she ever recovers trust in the sanctity of her medical privacy at all. That in turn will inhibit her recovery from other problems, some sure to derive from this.

Then there's the social damage public revelation of mental disorders inflicts. Who knows how many kids went and posted to their social media accounts about the "crazy girl," maybe identified by name, who got bawled out for "being a slut?" This will potentially follow this girl and continue to damage her throughout her life.

If the allegations are true, $600,000 isn't enough. And if Ms. Lein has any history of like conduct of which the camp was aware to make this kind of thing foreseeable, it should be financially ended right alongside Ms. Lein.

Seriously? Summer camp is all about making out with strange boys (and/or girls), stealing and drinking all the communion wine, sneaking out of the cabins, and generally being up to no-good. The scheduled activities are just to make the parents feel like they are getting their money's worth. ESPECIALLY church camp. (I dunno about band camp...). Why the hell else would youngo to any summer camp. Everyone needs to get a grip. And it sounds like the director needs to pull that stick out of her ass a bit. It is making her irritable. Parents too.

Maybe she's an ugly fatty and the guy she was making out with was just settling for any warm moist thing with a pulse. After all, article says she has self esteem problems.

In such a case, her story as you frame it would not result in positive notoriety.

Lol OMG-😂yeah a thirteen year old that thinks WWDWMTD (what would dad want me to do) while at summer camp. Is she your first kid, or is it just that the older ones aren't so old they are willing to tell you what they really did at camp yet?

I was in "Pep" band, we did all the away games for football and basketball. Shared the bus with the cheerleaders and stayed at the same hotel for overnights. Having several older brothers, I was the only one who knew to bring alcohol.
That was the only fun I had in High School.

TuteTibiImperes: 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.


Reminds me of the time I somehow ended up at a bible camp.  I was told I was going to  snow camp.  "Why are you putting a bible in my bag?"  "Just in case."  Whatver.  Snowsnowsnow!!!  So I get there and it's frickin' awesome.  Snow everywhere.  Snowball fights, snow forts, ice hokey (sliding around on rubber boots, not blades), etc.  Awesome cabins, cool kids, nice adults.  Then, as dinner was wrapping up, "Everyone go grab your bible and meet in the hall."

It wasn't that bad, tho.  And the hour of bible study really put me in the mood for sleep.

Was the boy who participated in the kiss / make-out sesh / damn-near-sexy-time kicked out as
well? If he got off scott free (no pun intended ... ok, maybe a little bit intended) and the girl got
singled out for punishment and humiliation, I can see the parents getting their noses out of
joint.

Is it any wonder that kids today are so farked up? On the one hand, the media is bombarding
them with hyper sexualized messages, while on the other hand, society has all but reverted to
a damn near puritanical 'sexual urges are BAD and you are BAD for having them!' mentality.

Sheesh.

On a totally unrelated note, is David Letterman ill or something? He's on right now and every
time I see  him, his clothes just hang off of him.
