Closed summer camp had issues in past

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Complaints about the summer camp that unexpectedly shutdown Wednesday are flowing into the Better Business Bureau.

WAVE 3 News was the only station to tell you about the issues with Inspirational Keys. Based in Memphis, the operator Quinton Cox signed lease agreements with Melbourne Heights Baptist Church on Taylorsville Road and Mill Creek Elementary school to run a 10 week arts oriented summer camp. Both the church and JCPS canceled those agreements.

JCPS said it was because Cox was not offering parents what he promised.

Inspirational Keys has an "F" rating with BBB in Memphis. A spokesperson there says it's based on two unanswered complaints filed last summer. One was out of Jackson Mississippi from a parent who wanted to get their money back after the camp suddenly closed. Another came from a parent who signed their child up for the program based on the hours listed on the website, but those were not the hours the camp operated.

The BBB said they received four new complaints Thursday. Three from parents in Louisville and one from Memphis.

Cox refused repeated requests from WAVE 3 for answers about his program.
