I Need an Email

Postby Gage Morgan » Wed Oct 03, 2012 6:21 pm

Does anyone know Roger St. Louis's email address? He gave me one, but I got an error 550-550, or an error that the email doesn't exist and isn't set up on the server. Any help?

You can send him an email via [email protected]. Counselors are not allowed to give their private email to trainees and are not allowed to enter into correspondence with child trainees.

Huh? Can counselors not correspond with trainees? Back in the day we could write letters, is that not the same as an email nowadays?

Things have certainly changed! One of my ASA counsellors became a good friend of mine via email after camp.

Yes it's the same thing but due to various "child protection policies" (or whatever the specific name for the policy is) that sort of thing tends to be frowned upon these days. I work with kids and youth at my church and am always amazed when I go through the policy. And that's at a fairly small church where pretty much everyone knows everyone. But, unfortunately, these type of things are assumed to be needed now both for the protection of the kids but also for the protection of the adults. Even one false accusation of wrong doing can cause all sorts of problems for an individual, even if it's eventually proven to be false. It's sad but a fact of life in the world we live in today.

gt0163c has it exactly in one. One accusation would be disastrous. I've removed young friends from my Facebook account once they attended Space Camp, just to remove any doubt; even though I am a family friend and know their parents well .
