Updated 2 years ago

The owners of a Maine summer camp have been accused of allowing counselors under age 21 to hold an “end of year” drinking party. Oxford County Sheriff’s deputies say they broke up a drinking party last Friday night at Camp Waziyatah in Waterford. Forty-six-year-old Gregg Parker and 50-year-old Mitchell Parker were each arrested on a charge of furnishing a place for minors to consume alcohol. One counselor, 20-year-old Camila Medina, was charged with supplying alcohol. Police tell the Sun Journal, the Parkers were in the building during the party while about 15 counselors between the ages of 18 and 20 were drinking. Campers had gone home for the summer. The camp offers a range of activities including horseback riding, sailing, dance, pottery, and archery for children ages 7 to 17.
