WOW. I was just watching Fox news and saw a commercial from lawyers trolling for Boy Scout abuse victims. Brings it up to a new level.

An update: 

Russell Ruth, 34, aka "Captain Rick" was convicted of possessing child pornography including prepubescent images, and sentenced to 80 months  in federal prison. 

He was employed at the Babcock Hovey Scout Camp in Ovid which is operated by the Seneca Waterways Council in New York.  His duties focused on teaching scouts fire building, knot tying and other outdoors skills. He was recognized in 2017 for 25 years of participation at the Scout camp.

The sentencing is the result of investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Kevin Kelly.

Ruth had faced up to 10 years in prison.

Given the date of this post and what has come out in the last week or so, I say that you saw into the future.  Unfortunately, the reputation of Scouting is going to take quite a hit even longer into the future.
