( – In Louisiana, a Chick-fil-A restaurant announced that they would host a children’s summer camp in two different two-day sessions. 

The Hammond franchise location stated that the summer camp, which would have a $35 fee per session, would be open to children between the ages of 5 and 12. The announcement of the summer camp has resulted in a lot of social media debate. 

Campers who join the camp are being given the chance to meet the mascot of Chick-fil-A as well as the team leaders. They would also gain some insight into the brand and their hospitality. While this is something that fans of the chain are in support of there are many on social media who have slammed the decision. 

Following the backlash, the Facebook post of the store has been changed. In the original announcement, they had included a number of different activities that would be available to campers, including teaching them customer service skills, how to host, and how to guest order. They would also be given a tour of the kitchen and their own nuggets and ice cream. 

The post had been published on June 6 and had quickly resulted in thousands of commenters who slammed the store for attempting to exploit the kids that would attend by having them work. One of the users even tagged the Labor Department in the comments. While another changed the flier to calling for parents to pay them so that their students could be used for child labor.
