LOS ALAMITOS, CALIFORNIA: Sleeping arrangements at a school-organized science camp have left many parents of Los Alamitos’ fifth-graders furious and frustrated. As per reports, Weaver Elementary School in Los Alamitos, California, which comes under the Los Alamitos Unified School District held the camp in San Bernardino County. But at Camp Pali in San Bernardino, several girl students were reportedly asked to sleep in cabins with the male ‘non-binary’ counselors.

Parent Suzy Johnson said, “No parent should feel the way I feel after knowing what could have happened to my daughter.” Another parent Rachel Sandoval added: “I contacted the school and asked them if they were able to confirm that there was not a man actually sleeping in the same cabin as the girls. They were not able to confirm that.”

It has been said that the male ‘non-binary’ counselors who use they/them pronouns only spent three nights with the young girls in the same cabin. Emmi Teige, assistant director of Camp Pali, said: “Per California law, we place staff in cabins they identify with.”

Meanwhile, the school district has taken notice of the controversy and a spokesperson told KTLA that they have launched a probe. Reports said that parents are not alleging any crime against anyone. They just want to be informed so that they can make the right decisions for their child. Johnson explained, “It’s awful that children had to even experience this in fifth-grade camp. If I was aware of it and I had initiated something saying this was going to be done at this outdoor science camp, I would have kept my children home.”

Besides, the controversy has attracted a lot of attention on Twitter also as a user tweeted, “Parents: pull your kids out, homeschool them. Schools, hospitals, ANY 'institution' you may have trusted has been BOUGHT, the goal of the NEW OWNERS: get at your children; separate from parents. Erase women, erase MOTHERS; MANAGE the species for their grift and sexual deviance.”

When the second user tried to justify the school’s side saying, “At my seventh day Adventist, legalistic, middle school in 2013 for band camp the female students and male students all slept in the same gym. It's just different when you highlight certain things that people will get mad about, I guess. No one did anything inappropriate.” The third user corrected him and said, “No you’re avoiding the fact that the parents weren’t notified that the biologically male staff were going to be sleeping in the girls cabin. They were NEVER told of the sleeping arrangements compared to the ur church story where everyone knew before hand.”

A person noted: “Terrible. Those poor girls. Shown that they’re not allowed to have boundaries.” “SOME of them?!?!  One is bad enough but this reads like there is more than one.  What sort of camp is this - and why do several adult men gravitate towards it?  Because they know there are no checks and boundaries?  Needs to be investigated, now,” another one stated. “If the policy is the person with the psychological problems to do with their identity, are allocated to a cabin as per the alternative identity they adopt, then there should be non-binary cabins. These men are not identifying as teenage girls so why were they put in with them?” a tweet read.
