'Then she went to the main lodge or whatever, met with unarmed (God save us) security/policeman.'

It may come as a surprise but it wouldn't occur to anyone in Europe that security people (if there are any to begin with) in youth camps would be anything else but unarmed.   

I, for one, would certainly never consider to send any child of mine to a camp that entertained the thought of having armed guards around children.

Again, the situation as it occurred on Ut°ya was so outside of the realm of what can be expected there is really no way to be prepared for it without turning a country into a police state.
