I went to this camp when I was younger. We were playing some sort of game out at the large field, and a counselor accidentally sprayed me with a hose and got me totally drenched. I - being young - got mad at this, instead of seeing it as an accident, and insulted the counselor. I later returned to my room, and moments later I was rushed by 4 male counselors (I was 11 or so at the time) who all grabbed me and picked me up. They carried me down the stairs and nearly knocked my head on the railing. All the while I am resisting and telling them to stop. During this they are mocking me, and telling me I'm going to be sent home for what I did (insult the counselor). Quite a few kids at the camp saw this entire thing transpire. They bring me to the pool, and are swinging me back and forth, and finally throw me in. I fell very close to the edge of the pool where there was concrete slab. They laugh and leave me in the pool. Kids were all looking at what happened, and I didn't know what to do. I was very young, and had no power over what happened. The counselors physically overpowered me. I'm suprised people hired as counselors would do that, I'm even more suprised that the camp director didn't do anything about it. All this happened I believe in 2000, or possibly 2001. I was around 11 or 12 at the time. The camp director seemed more concerned about my misbehavior than the counselors actions. This is all truth, and although I'm unsure about the exact dates, this has been something that has resurfaced in my life recently and I realized how much it really hurt me.
