Lawsuits: Parents Sue YMCA After Camp Counselor Knocks Up Their 11-Year-Old And Gives Her A Sexually Transmitted Disease At Summer Camp!

- By Bossip Staff

We remember coming back from camp with friendship bracelets and the occasional scar — but a gut full of human AND an STD???

The family of an 11-year-old girl who became pregnant and contracted a sexually transmitted disease after being allegedly being raped in a sauna by her 17-year-old YMCA camp counselor is seeking justice from the New York Supreme Court. A lawyer for the family filed a lawsuit against the YMCA that alleges the organization was negligent when they failed to notify police, or the victims family following the incident, despite firing the counselor. The assault was also allegedly witnessed by a co-worker, who worked as a lifeguard.

The girl, who is now 12, gave birth to a son earlier this year — after the alleged rape in the sauna of the William-Emslie YMCA in Buffalo last July.

“The lifeguard reported it to management. The management did not report it to police,” said attorney John Elmore, who didn’t name the girl. “They believed the perpetrator, who claimed he didn’t do it.”

He said the girl’s parents were alerted by the YMCA that there had been an incident, but weren’t told that it was sexual.

The YMCA said in a statement, first reported by WIVB, that there was “no report of rape or pregnancy to the organization until April 2011” when they received the summons from the law firm.

SMH… This is just horrible. A child’s life has been forever changed. The YMCA is going to be filing bankruptcy when this family is done with them. They should have to pay the cost of that girl’s medical treatment and care for that child and MORE for not reporting what happened to the police!

    OK. I was wondering the same thing. I hate to think this but im wondering if they saying something now to get some money. Once I found out my baby was pregnant somebody would have been in jail.

  • geemoenettie

    This is exactly why my kids can’t go to camps etc.

  • Me, myself and I

    No way in the world I would’ve let my baby girl be a mother after all that. Confirm events at YMCA, confirm pregnancy & STD, abort then lawsuit. To each his own, though.

    • sholla21

      I agree with you 100%.
      Maybe by the time the parents found out it was too late? Or maybe they’re the ‘abortion is wrong no matter what’ type? Who knows? I feel so sorry for the young girl. sigh

  • kris

    Umm so there first thought is not to have the rapist in jail, but to sue the YMCA? Ummm yeah….I call bulls**t
    If my 11 year old came home pregnant and infected, the cops better find him before I do. Money would be the LAST thing on my mind.

  • TrulyGolden

    It seems like the parents were put in a no won situation, as much as people think an abortion would have been the best thing for this girl who would want to put their 11 year old through trama of that. The life guard did as he was suppose to do he witnessed it happen and reported it to his job the YMCA should have done a better job at investigating the situation but I am sure they did not want this to get out. I just hope justice can finally be served and all parties will be punished to the full extent of the law. I hope the parents of this little girl are the one to actually raise this child rather let their daughter be robbed of any more of her childhood.
