Camp Good News has issued a statement about losing their accreditation saying, it “understands and respects the American Camp Association’s decision.”

At least six people have come forward claiming they were abused at the Sandwich camp.

Three of them say they were molested by Charles Devita, an employee who killed himself on Wednesday.

Senator Scott Brown also attended the camp as a child, though he has never confirmed whether that is where he was abused.
