Summer Camp Fight Club

The first rule of Fight Club is to not talk about Fight Club, but fortunately the camp managers at Camp Ernest W. Brown in Maryland broke that rule when they discovered a summer camp version of the fictional club from the movie and book reportedly happening at the Boys and Girls Club sleepaway camp.

Now it’s been reported that one of the ring leader counselors was charged with second-degree assault and a probe is continuing to look into the activities that led to eight firings and a voluntary shut-down of the camp for the remainder of the summer.

The Washington Post has more on the story.
