35 Boy Scouts Sickened At Camp; Health Officials Investigate - News - MSNBC.com
The first report was in my blog -- and it was a few weeks ago. Our 5th grade camping trip ended with a number of kids and an couple adults getting sick. My son had his head in a garbage bag on the front row of the bus on the trip home to school. A classmate lost it in the third row of the bus. Then... after we landed, there were reports of another 20 or more getting sick over the weekend, including one of the teachers. We were gone from WED to Friday and had a bumpy landing.
