Assistant camp director arrested for soliciting nude photos of underage counselor

Posted: Updated:

Some disturbing accusations have been made at a popular sleep-away camp for kids in Westchester.

State police say Leonard Durante, 35, asked a 16-year-old counselor to send him naked pictures over Snapchat.

It happened while Durante was working as an assistant director at Camp Lakota in Sullivan County.

Durante now faces charges including indecent material to minors and endangering the welfare of a child.

The camp has not returned calls for comment.

Durante is due back in court on July 22.
