Cape Camp To Stay Closed For Summer Amid Sex Abuse Scandal

SANDWICH (CBS) – The Cape Cod camp at the center of sex abuse allegations has decided to remain closed for the summer.

Camp Good News announced its decision Friday afternoon.

“We remain fully committed to offering a positive experience to young people,” the camp said in a statement. “It is clear that we must review every aspect of our operations before reopening.”

“We take the allegations extremely seriously and want to express deep remorse for anything that may have occurred at the camp which may have hurt anyone. We have reached out to offer our cooperation to the District Attorney’s office.”

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.
