2 Branson men share Peter Newman Kanakuk Camp child sex abuse stories

  • Evan Hoffpauir and Keith Dygert grew up in Branson, Missouri.
  • Both say they were sexually abused for years by former Kanakuk camp counselor Peter Newman.
  • Growing public awareness of controversy linked to Kanakuk camp began early last year.

Branson resident Evan Hoffpauir said that in 2009, former Christian sports camp counselor Peter Newman, now a convicted sexual predator, called him with a prayer request.

Hoffpauir, now 34, recalled that during the phone call, Newman told him, “Things are getting crazy. You’re going to hear some stuff, and I just need prayers.”

Newman’s call came in 13 years ago, but Hoffpauir said he remembers that when the phone rang, he was in bed watching TV with his wife, Madison. When she asked what was up, Hoffpauir remembers replying, “Hang on a second.”

Hoffpauir said that just after the call ended, he told his wife — for the first time — that Newman sexually abused him for five years. The abuse experience lasted from 1999 until roughly 2003, during the time that Newman was a counselor at Branson-based Kanakuk Kamps.
