The state Office of Early Childhood and Department of Children and Families is investigating a medically supervised weight loss camp in Kent.  The agency says it's looking into Camp Shane over the health, safety, and well being of children who were enrolled there.  The overnight camp run at The South Kent School closed its doors yesterday, sending parents from across the country scrambling to pick up their kids.  Owner David Ettenberg says he didn’t have enough staffing to keep it open because staffers didn't want to stay on-campus, per camp COVID-19 safety procedures.  The owner is reportedly providing refunds to the families.  Some spoke with WVIT-TV and said no one checked if they were in fact the legal guardian at pick up, had their medication stolen, and weren't told about injuries sustained at the camp.
