What You Should Know to Lessen the Chance Your Child Will Be Molested in Camp

Summer sleep-away camps are an environment rife with risks of child sex abuse. The child is not easily able to reach parents, staff have access to kids 24/7, and the grounds are full of nooks and crannies along with spaces outside of buildings.

The Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance (JOFA) has produced an excellent hour-long video, “Preventing Sexual Abuse at Overnight Camps.” The main presenter, Rahel Bayar, is a sex crimes prosecutor, mother, and a previous contributor to this blog. She answers questions from an experienced camp director covering topics such as

  • Educating children for safety
  • Camp policies for preventing abuse and detecting it
  •  Questions parents should ask of camps to determine if they follow best practices

Check it out!
