My Last Post On This…..Updated

Standard

This will be the last time I post on Camp Birchwood for Boys.

Since last summer I have really struggled with everything that has come from this, it’s such a horrible thing to happen to a person and what happened to me was extremely unfair and I’ve never really had any proper answers into why this has happened. I most likely wont get any answers either.

The fact is I don’t understand anything about this and I could be wrong but I just can’t see past the fact that the director knew I hadn’t done anything.

This was something I wanted to do for ages and now I will never get the chance to do it again and all because of some horrible lies.

I have done so much to try and make things right here and get to the bottom as to why this has happened to me but what I have been doing isn’t ever going to help me. I just don’t feel like I’m ever going to get passed this, it’s honestly the worst feeling out the lot.

When this all started I got told I had 3 options; to contact the hiring organisation (CCUSA), to take legal action or to contact the camp.

I contacted CCUSA but they chose not to help me. I got legal advise but found out it would cost me a lot more money than I even have to take legal action against the camp. I never considered contacting the camp because I believed it would be a waste of time.

However today I made contact with the camp, I messaged the other director ‘Melissa’

It was quite a short message considering everything that has happened over the year but it is the only thing I haven’t actually done to try and get some answers and it is probably something I should have done when CCUSA first sent me that report back in July.

I know that I might not get a reply but at least I have tried absolutely everything now to get some sort of explanation as to why this happened and I don’t think I can do anything more.

Hopefully things will get better soon and maybe with me not posting on here anymore might help with that.

…………….Update.15.March.2014…………….

I’ve received some questions asking if I’m actually giving up on getting justice and answers for what happened to me.This is definitely not the case.

The fact of the matter is it was the director of Camp Birchwood for Boys ‘Daniel Bredemus’ that has done this to me, there is nobody else to blame apart from him and I have said everything I need to on this matter and unless something new, something substantial comes to my attention I will not be posting on here again.

I contacted the other director ‘Melissa’ knowing that I was most likely never to get an answer but that is OK. I have given them the chance to be honest for once and they didn’t take it. But I gave them the chance nonetheless.

I will continue to fight this and I will find a way get justice for this eventually and with the amount of people I get viewing on here daily (Mostly from the USA) and some of the message of support I have gotten from people that don’t even know me shows to me that ‘Daniel Bredemus’ will not get away with this.

I believe it is ‘Daniel Bredemus’ that makes Camp Birchwood for Boys a bad place to be, just look what he did to me. Every bad thing I have said about this place such as the broken tent is true. However the majority of people I have met at this camp are good people and that is something I need to make clearer and these people I haven’t and would never involve in any of this. The only people I would involve are the people I know or believe to have been involved in what happened to me that day.

One more thing and everyone involved in this whole mess including the director ‘Daniel Bredemus’ knows that in everything I have mentioned, whether it’s opinion or facts, that I have been 100% Honest in all of this. That is something that nobody else involved in any of this can say. So ‘Daniel Bredemus will be found out for what he has done, it is only a matter of time.

Why Has This Happened To me

Standard

I started all of this for so many reasons, to try and get some justice, to clear my name but mostly to get answers for why this happened.

I’ve looked through everything I’ve written on here and I still don’t have any answers for why this happened. I have theories that come from outside opinions on the matter, so maybe that’s the closest I’m going to get on the matter.

I just know that I don’t think I can get over this, why did something as horrible as this happen and nothing be done about it. Why did the director do this when it was clear I hadn’t done it.

I believe that the conclusions I have come to about this have to be correct as there the only thing that makes sense but what if I’m wrong, what if there is something else I don’t know.

I’ve been re-posting and creating more lately in the hope that I would at least get some answers. My life is a complete mess because of all of this and  just don’t see it getting any better. I’m so fed up with all of this but I can’t forget about it. I don’t even know what to do next, I’m still just confused as I was back when this started.

My Horrible Experience with Camp Birchwood for Boys – What Actually Happened

Standard

For the majority of what I was accused of by the director of Camp Birchwood for Boys didn’t happen at all.

However the director did accuse me of something another counselor did and I have never mentioned everything that happened actually happened here apart from in an email to CCUSA about 6 months ago.

First is the report that the director ‘Daniel Bredemus’ sent CCUSA

- Being cruel to one camper in particular.  Stuart would yell obscenities at him and tell him to stop paddling and then he would yell at him to start paddling again over and over again.  The camper was confused and scared of Stuart Moran.  This camper was also making shadow puppets in the cabin while Stuart was reading a book to the campers, and as a punishment for not paying attention, Stuart forced him to do push ups.  During the push up session, Stuart put his foot on the camper’s back, and caused him to fall over and made him start over again with the push-ups.  Other campers in the cabin confirmed the story.:

- Campers also stated that Stuart screamed obscenities at a homesick camper who cried frequently during the trip.

- Threatening to drag a camper out of his tent if he did not get out, while using obscenities.

In bold is something the other counselor did and I sent a message to CCUSA through email of what actually happened that day. Here it is. (Sorry about the spelling mistakes, its the exact message I sent CCUSA)

What I have highlighted I was not accused of by Birchwood for boys and knew nothing about it until recieving this, it was a canoeing trip and it was me and 2 other campers in one canoe and I did not yell at either of the campers and the other camper in the canoe did not make this complaint so why would I do this to one and not the other.
As for the shadow puppet incident, the camp punishment was 10 push-ups, this for one campers didn’t mind as a punishment and also the director ‘Daniel Bredemus’ was OK with the punishment for push ups. 
What happened in this case was that it was a time called lights out, where we get the campers to quiet down and ready for bed, so when the camper kept on acting out in this way I said that he had 50 push ups in the morning, this is something I always said and had them do no more than 10, the morning came and I got him to do 10 push ups and then what I didn’t expect was the other campers started to complain because of what I said the night before about 50 push ups and I said he would do them later but they were still complaining and that is when my co-counselor got up from his bed and told the camper to do push ups and every time the camper stoped doing it my co-counselor made him start again and my co-counselor never forced him to fall over but he did put his foot on his back as the other campers were complaining that he wasn’t doing them properly. i had no idea what to do here and it took until my fellow counselor asked me if he had done the correct amount of push ups (where I said yes) for him to stop. I can see why the camper wouldn’t be happy with me here but why I got accused of something my co-counselor did(although exsaggerated by the camper) I still don’t understand.
I also don’t understand why the director failed to mention this to me, as it seems that this is easily the worst thing in the report. I feel it may be because had the director mentioned this to me before I left I would have been able to answer this, as I have already stated I feel he may have had his own personal reasons for letting me go.

I have already provided enough proof that the homesick camper had lied and that also my co-counselor was accused of the same thing here.

Both of the directors themselves could tell you that the senior camper had a troulesome attitude and also that my co – counselor could tell you that I didn’t threaten him.
So hopefully this can be the extra information needed to get my situationlooked at properly.

The first part where I’m accused of shouting and swearing at a camper in my canoe! It didn’t happen at all and from what I remember the director only accused me of shouting and swearing at the homesick camper. The camper that was involved in the push-up situation was not the homesick camper and the homesick camper was never in my canoe or tent as he was in the other counselor’s group. So as I have said in previous posts the lies actually implicate the other counselor and not myself. So this is something that doesn’t make sense

Now what I have put in bold is what actually happened with the push-up incident. This is 100% fact!

As you can see from the message I sent CCUSA I can understand why the camper would be unhappy with me and I do take some of the blame for what happened and I also could have stopped it earlier than I did, But I did stop the other counselor who actually did this and I made sure that it never happened again, which it never did.

I was a bit of an idiot in this. I didn’t expect this to happen and I didn’t expect the other counselor to do what he did although as I said in the message to CCUSA the camper exaggerated what happened, however since the report was written by the director of Camp Birchwood for Boys, I believe that he has purposely made it look worse than it was.

This incident also happened almost 2 weeks before I got fired, so that is another unanswered question.

Everything I have said on this matter is 100% true and I still don’t understand the majority of this as the lies implicate somebody else, i’m getting accused of something another counselor has done and the director accused me of something different in person from what he told CCUSA.

I don’t know what I’m more disgusted about from that day, the fact that the director seemed a little too happy about what he was doing to me or the fact that nobody else seemed to do anything to prevent it from happening.

My Horrible Camp Birchwood for Boys Experience! Why I’m Doing This!

Standard

Since I was unfairly let go from Camp Birchwood for Boys, I have gotten a lot of replies from people offering there advice and help and to them I want to thank you. You have understood the situation that I am in and I have even heard similar stories to my own.

Some of you have tried to help me to get past this whole situation and I fully respect what you are trying to do. However right now I am just not there.

Also CCUSA have asked me before and more than once about why I am doing this(trying to clear my name), I’ve answered them and the reason is quite simply the fact that there has been no justice whatsoever, the director of Camp Birchwood for Boys fired me for something I didn’t do and it is clear to me that he knew this, the director has shown himself to me to be a horrible person and yet someone like that can just get away with something as horrible as this, whereas with me I have always tried to do the right thing and yet I’m the one that is getting punished; I was wrongly accused of something horrible by in my opinion a petty self absorbed man, I was forced to travel halfway across America alone, lost, confused and scared, Also when eventually got home I found that I wouldn’t be able to pay small bills, which would never have happened had it not been for the directors lies and I am now struggling to stay at University. There has been no justice in this whatsoever.

So to CCUSA, I came to you for help and you did nothing to help me in this situation, even though it is clear that the director is in the wrong here. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Also to everyone who is reading from Camp Birchwood for Boys, whether its Dan, Melissa or anyone else. Everyone in the room that day knows I didn’t do this and my fellow counselor also knows I didn’t do this. Also for everyone else as well, the director ‘Dan’ sent CCUSA a report, which CCUSA sent to me and as I have mentioned in previous post there was something in the report that the director failed to mention to me before I left (easily the worst thing in the report). This was in fact my fellow counselor that had done this, although it was definitely over exaggerated by the camper or the director given that its the report I’m going by. I did feel me and my fellow counselor had dealt with what happened here but obviously I was wrong.

The fact that this was never mentioned to me shows me that the director knew I hadn’t done this but most likely that he knew that it was my fellow counselor who had done this, I have been told that I could have been a scapegoat here as my fellow counselor wasn’t just a returning counselor but he was a previous camper and it wouldn’t look good for the director or the camp.

Also the fact that the director lied about another camp making complaints about this and also that I was told by another counselor that the homesick camper was going to lie about me and the other trip counselor. It makes this whole thing disgusting.

So whether the directors reason for letting me go was to use me as a scapegoat, or because I wouldn’t turn a blind eye on the camps infractions, or if it was just the personal problem the director seemed to have with me. It is clear that there has been no justice here.

I am sorry to the people that have tried to get me past this but nobody should get away with something as horrible as this.

I will not stop with this until I have achieved at least some justice on the matter and to the director ‘Dan’ if you do read this of course, what you have done here is horrible, I really hope you can change and learn from this for your daughters sake especially. Anytime you want to give me an honest answer of what happened as well, considering it is the very least that I deserve.

So to everyone the reason I am doing this is for justice and CCUSA the reason you can’t see that will make anyone question what type of organisation you are.
