Warren County camp counselor accused of sexual abuse involving minors


BRANT LAKE, N.Y. (WRGB) - The Brant Lake Camp told parents in a letter that 51-year-old camp counselor Dylan Stolz was terminated after State Police arrested him for five counts of sexual abuse involving campers.

The all-boys camp accepts campers from age 7 through 15. Camp runs from June 23 to August 10 and Tuition is $12,775, according to the camp’s website.

State police say Stolz had been a counselor at Brant Lake for the last 33 years. In the letter, the camp says Stolz inappropriately touched several campers, but the letter says those campers are still at the camp. They also say that Stolz’ arrest hasn’t affected camp life.

The camp also told parents that they’re fully cooperating with the investigation.

The camp did not return several requests for comment. State Police say they began investigating Stolz on June 28 after getting several complaints about him.

Along with his camp counselor duties, state police say Stolz is a teacher for the Hewlett-Woodmere school district in Long Island. In a statement, the school district says they are aware of Stolz’ arrest, and have placed him on administrative leave.

State police are also looking into whether this was an isolated incident or not. If you have any other information, give them a call.
