CNN quoted authorities as saying Tyler Cole Spencer, 18, Mark Trail, 21, Cassandra Robertson, 18 and two minors intimidated Jewish campers and staff members at Camp Bonim on three separate occasions on July 14 and 15.
The suspects allegedly drove recklessly through the camp, damaging property and shooting at campers and staff with a paintball gun. The suspects are accused of shouting anti-Semitic slurs while rampaging through Camp Bonim.
"The vicious, cruel and obscene nature of the language hurled at the campers is unspeakable," CNN quoted Wayne County, Pennsylvania, District Attorney Janine Edwards as saying. "Luckily none of the children suffered any serious physical injury; however, the emotional damage done is immeasurable. This is outrageous conduct and will not be tolerated."
The adult suspects were charged with ethnic intimidation, terroristic threats, recklessly endangering another person and institutional vandalism, according to the report.
