They pulled those names from a series of children's books that used to be popular. Fairly common practice, although it is ironic in this case.

The parents sent her to the same camp as her BF or a co-ed camp? That is just asking for trouble at that age. The camp did not want the responsibility of what might happen next( or already has).

Meh... I don't think it's that bad. How would it be any worse than the two kids residing in the same town when they're not in camp?

If the story is true, it really does sound like the camp handled it very badly. Come on, 15 year olds are going to make out. Maybe they should enforce a rule of not publicly making out, but to denounce the kids character and escort them out via armed guards?? Thats ridiculous.

The only extended answer I have is that they are at camp 24 hours a day and while the counselors are sleeping the campers will play.

Easier said than done- the counselors sleep in the same room as the kids, and the boys cabins are usually far away from the girls cabins.

The counselors are usually high school or college kids and probably doing the same thing wouldn't you? LOL

As always, people overreact to situations. The camp for it's reaction and the parents for suing! People are always looking for a reason to sue. But a "send-off" kiss behind the shed??? Yeah, right. That'll fly! You wouldn't want the neighbors thinking badly of your daughter.
As for the camp director, obviously you weren't thinking. You blew your career.
