Texas Attorneys for Victims of Sex abuse in Camps

Sex Abuse and Assault at summer camp - Merritt and Watson advocate for sexual abuse victims.


Residential day camp and summer camp operators are required to provide a safe environment, free from sexual injury, for your child.

The law mandates that operators of these facilities exercise reasonable care in properly screening, training and supervising employees and volunteers. Often former campers, now adults, are hired or volunteer, as “camp counselors” without the necessary training to prevent sexual abuse of children in their charge. They need this training because sexual predators, often volunteers themselves, seek camp positions to gain access to children.

Failure to provide crucial prevention and safety protocol has allowed camp employees, volunteers, and sometime other campers to sexually abuse children rendered especially vulnerable by age and circumstance. If your child has been hurt at a camp, please contact the police immediately. Other children may be at continuing risk. Call me about your legal rights.
