My 14 year old son went to an ice hockey sport camp with two other teammates from a local travel team on a Sunday, they shared one room. One boy got homesick, called his father Thursday around 1am and the father had to go pick him up, about 5 hours away. The father offered to stay with his son in a nearby hotel so the son could finish the week, the son refused, wanted to go home. On the release form the child wrote he was leaving because he was homesick and was bullied. The "B" word. My son and the third were "investigated" and thrown out. The bullying amounted to them hiding his snacks. The evening before the child's mother texted my wife that her son was having a good time. There was never any complaint to us or any of the staff at the camp, no one at the camp saw any problems, all three boys participated in all events without issue. While on our local travel team there has never any issue other than the normal boys will be boys playing sports. Never any complaint of any kind, never any type of reprimand of any kind involving the boys. There was the usual 14 year old horsing around. The boy who left, when beaten on a drill by the other teammate would repeatedly call him an "f**king douchebag" and other "f" bombs, which is not uncommon or unusual and no one took offense. Although I'm not happy the boys use the "f" bomb and others similar words and phrases, I am not so much a prude to think boys at that age do not use that type of talk. Never did the child complain to my son or the other boy about being teased, never told them to stop teasing. Now my son has a record with the camp, it may be the best ice hockey camp in the country, and may not be allowed back. My son has never been accused of being a bully at any time, anywhere in his 14 years of life. Not in school, not in hockey, nowhere, ever. It seems to me the family felt they had to put something down on the release and just wrote "being bullied". I want to file a complaint/lawsuit against the family of the boy who left for defaming my son. Essentially what I want is for the family to apologize to the camp and have the "bully" complaint removed to restore my son's good name. I would also request my son be compensated for his trauma of being labeled a bully but that is all secondary. I could really care less about any money, I doubt we would ever collect, etc.
