Unregulated Florida summer camps leave children at risk

A six-month Palm Beach Post investigation into unregulated Florida summer camps has revealed that the state's lax laws have allowed convicted child molesters to get jobs in Florida camps, where they went on to molest still more victims.

For every child who was harmed, many more are at risk -- especially in the state's poorest neighborhoods. The Post also found that Florida lawmakers have known of the dangers for 30 years yet have failed to safeguard kids in camps.
