Campagna Kids counselor charged with sexually assaulting a child

Alexandria police announced today that they are charging Campagna Kids camp counselor Tae’Sean Atwater, 21, with sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13.

Atwater is being held in the Alexandria Adult Detention Center and while police say an investigation has only uncovered evidence of one incident, Atwater has been in programs connected to Alexandria City Public Schools since at least 2019.

Atwater worked as a camp counselor for Campagna Kids, an after-school program run through the Campagna Center for children from kindergarten to 5th grade.

“While the preliminary investigation has not uncovered evidence of inappropriate contact with other children, Mr. Atwater has been a camp counselor with Campagna Kids since 2019,” the police release said. “Mr. Atwater has worked at multiple Campagna Kids sites including Patrick Henry Elementary School summer camp, Samuel Tucker Elementary in the before-school program, and George Mason Elementary in the after-school programs.”

Police are asking anyone with additional information to contact Detective Jason Marable by phone at 703 746 6883 or by email at [email protected], or to call the non-emergency number at 703 746 4444. All tips can be submitted anonymously.
