If your child is going to camp this summer, please ask the camp directors what procedures they have in place to keep the campers safe from sexual abuse.  Don’t be shy.  Ask specific questions about supervision of children by adults remembering that one-on-one opportunities are when abuse is mostly likely to occur.  Ask about any times there might not be multiple children present with multiple adults supervising.  Ask about bathroom facilities and shower times.  Are older children separated from younger children to avoid any possibility of child-on-child abuse?  Are cabins off limits during the day and, if not, are there rules in place for supervision?  Does the camp follow specific safety protocols and if so what are they?  If possible, ask them to send you a copy of the procedures they have in place.  Working together, we can keep kids safe!
