Our hearts ache for the victims of Lee Bradberry. At the same time, we are left wondering how it is possible that – after having already had a high-ranking staff member, director Pete Newman, arrested for child sex crimes – Kanakuk Kamps allowed the same thing to happen again?
It is clear that the owners of this camp need to begin a rigorous background checking system in order to prevent any more children from being victimized by their employees.
It is especially disturbing given the fact that Kanakuk officials had known about Newman’s crimes for almost a decade prior to his arrest. We hope that these officials did not similarly know of allegations against Bradberry, but our expectations are tempered. We urge anyone who may have seen, suspected, or suffered crimes at the hands of Bradberry or any other Kanakuk official to come forward now and make a report to police.
