  • Grooming

    I was groomed and abused by an older scout, who I am prepared to name, when I was between 11 and 13 years old. The grooming included multiple visits to my home and while away on camping trips. The abuse occurred in several locations, including being forced to share a tent with him and another senior scout. There was no apparent concern from scout leaders who never once asked if I was comfortable in this situation.
