    Police say Mark Witt, the executive director of the camp, knew about what happened after a family member told him, but he failed to report it to investigators. Jason Witt, who also works at the camp, is charged too.

    Court papers say Jason Witt found out about the incident in early May. The documents also said because of Mark Witt's position, he is required to report suspected child abuse.
