399. Caribe Vista, Haiti

Caribe Vista also marketed as Caribe Vista Youth Safari was located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

In 1974 the authorities in Haiti closed them down forcing them to relocate to the Dominican Republic. What wasn’t known by the authorities at that time because they closed the boarding school down due to non-existing licenses to operate it was that the founder Rev. Gordon C. Blossom was involved with acts of pedophilia.

After they reopened in the Dominican Republic the boarding school was renamed Escuela Caribe.

In 2009 they lost their license in their home state Indiana. Today another organization continues to run Escuela Caribe under another name.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
