“What happens at Camp Epic, stays at Camp Epic.”

RICHMOND, Calif. – A California middle school teacher reiterated one simple rule when he took his students on overnight camping trips:

“What happens at Camp Epic, stays at Camp Epic.”

Fortunately that did not turn out to be the case.

Ronald Guinto, 32, a former middle school and elementary English and science teacher, is facing 27 sexual abuse and kidnapping charges based on his alleged behavior on those camping trips, reports the Contra Costa Times.

He was arrested earlier this month and pleaded not guilty in court.

Court documents allege that Guinto brought students on overnight “camping trips” where he would fondle them, show them pornographic videos, perform oral sex on them and sleep with them.

“Camp Epic” was a camp that Guinto founded in 2009 as part of his master’s program, according to the Contra Costa Times. He used his position as a teacher at Making Waves Academy charter school to recruit young boys to attend the camp with him.  (more...)

Is your school a joke?
