In the summer of 2001, there was a shooting in the camp, under Spritzers management…read all about it here…Shooting on campgrounds.
In the summer of 2002, when the camp was under Spritzers management, the caretakers house was burned to the ground by some of the other employees. They had gotten in to a fight with Spritzer over money and as a result burned the house down.
More stories to come (I have a feeling we are going to hear much more).
Exit Question: This happened two days ago (July 15, 2009), why are we only hearing about this now (for the first time on, July 17, 2009)?
