READERS DISPUTE BROWARD COUNTY WARNINGS, CLAIM OUR STORY IS “FAKE!”
COCONUT CREEK, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Despite a volume of public records and official warnings being issued, several parents of children at Eagles Landing Camp (day and overnight camp) in Coconut Creek are slamming BocaNewsNow.com for publishing 15 COVID-19 warnings issued by Broward County. They claim the reporting is “fake.”
The slams continue as camp owner and director, Matt Cannold, alerted parents that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
The parental comments — even some threats — continue as camp owner and director, Matt Cannold, alerted parents that he has tested positive for COVID-19. The announcement came a day after school leaders in Palm Beach County, Broward County and Miami-Dade County stated it’s not safe to have children return to school in just a few weeks.
Broward County, complying with Florida Statute 119, released all of the complaints filed against the camp over the past several weeks. At least 15 have resulted in an official “warning” from Broward County. Many of the violations follow.

We counted a total of 15 in all. They are listed with tracking numbers in our original report. You can also link to the Broward County Violation Tracker through that report.
Eagles Landing Camp has not responded to repeated requests for comment over the past several weeks.
Other area camps, including American Heritage, Pine Tree, and camps at the Boca Raton JCC declined to open this year, citing COVID-19 safety concerns.
