That school is horrible!  Don't send your kid there!  I still have nightmares ten years later.

That happened after I left.  I wish someone would have done that when I was there.

Yes, I went there in 94-95. It sucks. They spank you with a paddle when you are "bad".

My husband was there from 89-96 and we he still has nightmares and is in therapy. He was sexually abused, beaten, and worked nearly to death. He has the scars to prove it. His two brothers were sent there as well and one is now blind in one eye because of the abuse he suffered. The other brother just stays drunk to not remember it and we are still called and written to by the former dean of boys who abused him, no one would step forward with my husband to try to stop this but we have heard about Kirk's suit and maybe, finally, something will be done. we even confronted the director of the camp and he said he'd never heard anything about any kids being abused...You'd think the grand jury that investigated them in 87 might have notified him when they were there, eh? Pray forthese people because they touch children's lives and care for no one save themselves..

I'm not a Camp kid, but I went to Harvest Christian Academy in the 80s. Can't say I was surprised that a certain ex-staff member was accused of abuse, only that it took so long for anything to come to light. Even now, people at Harvest don't want to believe anything even though a church staff kid has come forward with abuse charges. I'm wondering now not only how many more Camp kids will come forward, but also how many of the HCA kids will start talking as well.

(I had my run-ins with the alleged abuser in question, but he was just mentally abusive toward me. I never thought I'd see the day when I'd say I got away from Harvest easy; but compared to the Camp survivors, I did.)

I suspect you're referring to me, Wayne Francis (I can't think of another "staff" kid" who actually filed a complaint). I doubt HCA students will be filing any lawsuits; sexual abuse was a rare occurence; and of those who were abused, the statute of limitations creates all kinds of problems.

As of today Fornits Wiki has a page about this program (This thread is in fact not the first on this board about this specific program) with lot of links.

We need info about living standard, education used (ACE??), possible level or positive peer pressure system, amount of corporal punishment used etc.

Please help us out.
