Dylan Stolz, 51, of Little Neck, was arrested and is charged with five counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Stolz has been a counselor at the camp for 33 years. Police said he also works as a teacher for the Hewlett-Woodmere School District in Nassau County.
Stoltz was charged with nine counts of felony first-degree sexual abuse, nine counts of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child and one count of felony second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child.

Organizations that are entrusted with the care of our children have a legal responsibility to supervise their employees and others who come in contact with children in their care. Sadly, not every school, sleep away camp, day care provider, church, synagogue or youth group in New York exercises proper oversight, resulting in injuries, assaults or worse. Children who have been victimized in these ways may be entitled to compensation for their losses and suffering.
