19 year old Josie was home from college for the summer and she wanted to work on her tan. Her mom insisted that she get out of the house  so Josie went to look for a summer job. She saw that a nearby overnight camp Camp Wondertrails was hiring for a counselor for the boys bunk so she applied for the position. When she arrived for the position the Camp Director said you are not qualified for the position because you are female. But we are looking for volunteers at the arts and crafts cabin. Knowing that her mom would be mad if she came home without a job Josie volunteered planning to do lots of arts and crafts outside in the sunshine. On her first day on the job Ryan the head of the boys bunks came over to her and said I heard you wanted to work in the boys bunk. You can share my sleeping back anytime. Josie shrugged him off but he continued to make comments throughout the summer. Josie reported this to the Camp Director who acknowledged that Ryan was always teasing. On one occasion he put his arm around her and rubbed her shoulders which made Josie uncomfortable but she was in front of the campers so she didnt say anything. By the end of the summer Josie was fed up and filed claims against Camp Wondertrails for sexual discrimination and sexual harassment. Will she be successful on these claims?
