Would there be a lawsuit in this headline if the camp adults had handled this differently?

Kissing is a $600000 offense at this camp.

This is the headlines form the article “Lawsuit: Girl kicked out of camp over kissThe result of being thrown out of

Kissing Black-tailed Prairie Dogs (Cynomys lud...

camp is a lawsuit by the girl’s parents for “$600,000 in damages, alleging negligent infliction of emotional distress, defamation and other claims.”

The camp, Camp Emerson had an activity called “court time”. This activity “which is held on the basketball court and provides time for male and female campers to interact.” The camper was thrown out when she, and a boy went behind the arts and crafts building and had a kiss.

This is where it gets interesting.

But Arnold said the girl was publicly humiliated and expelled from the camp the next morning by the camp director, Sue Lein. Her parents were called and told to pick her up at the edge of camp, where she was escorted by an armed and uniformed police officer, Arnold said.

The camp allegedly …falsely accused her and the boy of sexually provocative behavior.” A fifteen-year-old girl has that accusation levied at her? That is just nasty, even if true.

Allegedly, the “camp’s director yelled at the girl for being promiscuous in front of everyone….”

The family spent $6,450 for the four-week camp, which was not refunded, said Rosemarie Arnold, attorney for the family.” Blow number two to the egos and feelings of the family. Your daughter is escorted off camp property by an armed guard, and then you don’t even get a refund.  Someone was sitting in a law office may want to suggest a different way of dealing with these issues.

Do you think anyone will learn anything about this, other than young girls realizing that kissing a boy is bad and can lead to mental trauma and embarrassment? Isn’t high school for teenagers bad enough?

This suit was withdrawn a few days after it was filed.

Is this any way to treat any fifteen year old kid? Is this any way to deal with budding hormonal and emotional changes? Is this any way to treat anyone other than criminals?

Is there anything from this description that would tell you as a parent to not sue the camp for what they did to your child?
