After unsettling week and racial slurs, parents say camp won't be back

Youths of color attending a summer camp in Stowe earlier this month were targets of racial slurs and other offensive behavior, according to parents, who say the camp has scrapped plans to hold another session in Vermont next year.

The purpose of the camps, parents said, is to allow their campers, usually adopted by white parents, to spend time with other kids of color and counselors too.

According to parents, the campers and counselors were subjected to racial slurs at a local mini-golf on the Mountain Road in Stowe from "cowardly" people yelling out of car windows. They also said the youths were stared at, questioned, and treated in an unfriendly manner by some of the staff at the Stoweflake Resort in Stowe.
