An Ontario teen and his parents are suing the owners of Hockey Opportunity Camp, and four former campers, alleging the boy was sexually assaulted while he attended the camp at age 12.

“I was looking for my friends and I went to go into one of the other cabins to see if they were there, when there was someone at the door saying that if I wanted to come in, I had to get initiated,” said the teen, who was 12 years old at the time.

“When I came in, they kind of just all grabbed me, threw me on the ground and held me down. They assaulted me with a broom, and I really couldn’t do much to stop it. I was able to get away and it was very traumatizing,” he said.

The teen said he recalled then being put in a room by the staff “in a circle” with the campers who had allegedly been involved with the incident.

Global News has agreed to protect the identities of the teenager and his family, who spoke about the allegations on condition of anonymity. Caryn Lieberman reports.
