A Jewish overnight camp in Michigan was vandalized with swastika graffiti over the weekend, Orthodox-Jewish news website Matzav.com reported.

Photos published by the website show the Nazi symbol spray painted on exterior areas of Camp Agudah Midwest, including picnic tables, a parked car and the camp’s welcome sign.

Camp management immediately alerted police about the vandalism after discovering it on Sunday morning. Officers were dispatched to the scene and talked with camp leaders about the incident. The graffiti was removed and officials are investigating the hate crime.

According to the report, Camp Agudah is working with local law enforcement personnel to identify the vandals and the group is reviewing surveillance footage from camp grounds as well as other evidence gathered from the scene.

The Othodox-Jewish camp, located in South Haven, will also be adding additional security measures to its premises and has hired a security team to patrol the camp throughout the night, according to Matzav.

Camp Agudah holds two successive 4-week sessions each summer, one for girls completing grades 4-10 and one for boys completing grades 4-12.
