No there were others that died. A teenage girl died of dehydration even after she told staff she was thirsty and exhausted. I cant remember her name off hand, but I do believe this was made public by I forget what network, I think I might of seen it on A&E.

There were also other instances where children in VQ were physically abused and in some cases beaten real bad.

VQ is no joke folks, I was in it and escaped not long after arriving at that place.

The people that run it are interested in only one thing (Money), they will mistreat all that oppose them.

They all need to burn in hell!

i know that when all the kids died in 80 it was out in the ocean, it was a typhoon or something, they stopped doing those quests after that had happened. I was also in vision quest, wilderness camp west in the late 80's.  and yuor right it is no joke.  they say that they are restraining you but it goes way beyong restraint.....  i have seen many kids get hurt pretty badly, including myself, i remember two staff members that were the worst, irving solomon and felix (can not remember last name) i was there for a long time, did many quests and saw alot . and it is scary to hear that it has only gotten worse.

I really do not know if I should say this, but I  worked for visionquest about 10 years ago.  I was a drill instructor at their boot & hat camp in Pennsylvania.  I remember a boy that died there in March or April 1997.  We were told the boy had a malfunctioning heart and there was no way it could be detected.  It really hit the personnel and the kids that were there pretty hard.  I eventually left because of it.  I was there to help these kids, not hurt them.  I am a former Marine and remember the camp being set up just like Marine boot Camp.  I can honestly say that I never took part or saw any unnecessary physical contact with the kids.  Everytime there was a physical altercation, it was because one of the kids would put there hands on a staff member or would blatantly refuse to follow orders.  Of all the staff members I met, whose names I cannot remember, none of them were there to hurt the kids.  They were interested in the kids future and fixing whatever was wrong with them.  The reason I even am on this site is because I have a friend who has a completely, utterly out of control child that needs to be given some direction.  I was totally unaware of these deaths.  Is the place still open?  Does anybody know

I don't know. Anybody have any documentation on that? I do know that some new place called Right Way in Pennsylvania is starting out w/ refugees from the Family Foundation.

Are we seeing a trend here? The denizens of the private sector gulags fleeing to the safer public sector?
