According to a memo written by the camp director, he saw the rifle range instructor molest the boy. The director went up to the instructor, left, and hid again. The rifle range instructor again molested the boy, according to the camp director's memo.

The camp director, the local scoutmaster and the boys' parents held a meeting. The meeting closed with all agreeing that the rifle range instructor would be "quietly dismissed," and to "keep our knowledge private."
