Day camp closes after children, staff complain of illness

TWIN LAKE, Mich. (AP) -

A western Michigan camp has temporarily suspended operations after more than 20 children and staff complained of being ill.

Camp Gerber Scout Reservation in Muskegon County's Twin Lake was hosting a Cub Scout day camp and shut down voluntarily Thursday night.

WOOD-TV reports that county health officials suspect the illness could be norovirus.

The property was to be disinfected and medical checks were to be conducted.

WZZM-TV reports that healthy campers and counselors were being sent to other camps in the system. Cub Scout camps scheduled next week will be hosted at a facility in Kalamazoo.
