I think what these parents are forgetting is that Kanakuk is NOT the only place your kids can find a relationship with Christ! I sent my kids back to Kanakuk the year after Joe White found out about the situation with Pete Newman ONLY because the truth was hidden from parents that year...we were told Pete was gone from camp for "Personal Reasons", and thus not allowed to make an informed decision about our kids. I think the way that whole situation has been handled by "Kamp" speaks volumes as to why that type of behavior is going to continue there. I personally have family members who are judging me harshly because I refuse to allow my kids to return to Kanakuk, but as a parent you have to be willing to do what is best for your kids well being even if it means not sending them to the "popular, upscale camp". I for one am dealing with the NEGATIVE impact kanakuk has had on my Son's walk with Christ because of the close relationship he had with Pete Newman. One thing to remember parents, if you think this can never happen to your children...think again, even if they are not physically assaulted by Pete or Lee or what ever other adult is left unattended with them at camp, their faith is under assault just by thier friendship with them. No matter how much truth there may have been in what Pete told my son about Loving our Lord and growing his faith, he still deals with the doubt because Pete was a fraud.
