Hooters-Sponsored Camp Outrages Parents

Denver-area parents discovered their sons at camp posing with Hooters girls


Much to their parents' dismay, Denver-area Cub Scouts had some special visitors at a recent summer camp.

Parents of the first through fifth graders were outraged after seeing photos on Facebook of their sons posing with Hooters employees, KMGH-TV reported Monday.

"Though the photos appear to have been taken down, several parents said they were still upset after learning the restaurant had actually sponsored the Cub Scout camp," the ABC Denver affiliate said.

The Boy Scouts of America Denver Area Council confirmed that Hooters had reached out to the youth organization and given a "financial contribution" to the camp.

A Denver Hooters manager also told KMGH that the restaurant "provided three of its employees each day as volunteers for the three-day Cub Scout camp."

When parents complained via email after seeing their sons in Hooters visors, one response from a Boy Scouts district executive read: " 'The restaurant assisted with the costs of putting on the camp, and through their community volunteering several of their waitresses donated their time to help staff the camp. Glad to hear your son had such a good time.'"
