Camp good news sexual abuse
CAMP LEJEUNE, NC (WWAY) — A Marine colonel based at Camp Lejeune was convicted and sentenced in a child sexual abuse case. The government said the charges stemmed from incidents in Australia, Camp Lejeune and Beaufort, South Carolina, in 2016. Wilson was sentenced to 5 1/2 years confinement and dismissed from service. Wilson was found not guilty of: the rape of a child; assault consummated by battery upon a child under 16 years; three counts of conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentlemen; sexual assault and assault consummated by battery.Many campers grow to respect, trust and idolize camp counselors and staff members.This tie is even stronger when perceived spiritual ties and commonality exist.This provided a natural opportunity to talk about mommies, daddies and ‘where kittens come from.’ Honest discussions with children about their bodies, comfortable touch, and the right to say “no,” can protect your child when you aren’t able to be present.These discussions, added to a parent’s ‘due diligence’ in evaluating Christian camp programs, can ensure a summer camp experience that’s safe and fun for everyone.As parents, we must teach our children that there are individuals who have the wrong motive when they touch, and that no one should touch them anyplace that a bathing suit covers.If such a touch does occur, teach your child to tell you immediately.
As one of the most iconic summer pastimes in America, summer camp is at the top of the list.In evaluating Christian camps, parents often look at programs offered, the location of the facility and overall cost.
