Sexual Abuse at Children’s Camps
Summer camp should be a place where all children make new friends and form fond memories that last a lifetime. However, the malicious conduct of a counselor or other staff member can put children at risk for painful physical and emotional scars that last a lifetime. In these cases, our Dallas law office has a strong track record of holding camps accountable for sexual assault and abuse.
The Dallas attorneys at the Turley Law Firm have decades of experience pursuing monetary compensation and justice on behalf of the survivors of childhood sexual abuse and their loved ones. Please call (214) 691-4025 today to schedule a free private consultation.
Experience in Children’s Camp Cases
For more than 40 years, the Turley Law Firm has stood for the rights of injured people in Dallas, Texas, as well as nationally and internationally. This commitment extends to innocent children hurt by sexual predators in settings such as:
- Day camps
- Sleepaway camps
- Bible camps and other religious activities
- Athletic programs
- Camps, programs, and activities run by the city or state
The adults who work at summer camps are supposed to encourage kids to have fun while enforcing rules to keep them safe. Unfortunately, bad hiring practices and negligent supervision can put children in danger of being victimized by a sexual predator.
Breaking the Cycle of Abuse
Child molesters are extremely likely to target more than one child. Many children who endure assault are terrorized into silence by their abuser, or believe that they’ve “fallen in love” with the perpetrator. The abuse continues unabated, with most victims too ashamed or scared to tell a trustworthy adult.
If a child is brave enough to come forward about sexual abuse, we believe it is our duty to seek justice and fair compensation on behalf of the victim and his or her family. Our Dallas attorneys are proud to speak up for families whose children suffered abuse at a camp or other setting where the organization tried to cover up misconduct.

The Dallas attorneys at the Turley Law Firm hear cases that originated throughout the United States and in foreign countries.
