LENOX, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination is investigating a Berkshire County performance arts and sports camp for girls after a Florida family complained that their learning-disabled daughter was denied admission.
The commission has determined that it has jurisdiction in the case involving Belvoir Terrace, a private camp in Lenox.
The complaint was lodged by J.B. Harris, a Florida attorney whose 15-year-old daughter was not accepted into the camp’s summer session.
Harris says his daughter has dyslexia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder but has functioned well at sleep-away camps since she was 8. He tells the Berkshire Eagle that Belvoir Terrace’s rejection “broke my daughter’s heart.”
Belvoir Terrace’s owners say they have had plenty of learning-disabled campers, but after interviewing Harris’ daughter decided she would not be a good fit.
