GREELEY, Colo. — The University of Northern Colorado has shut down a summer camp program after multiple campers became ill, possibly with norovirus.

UNC says 32 children, ages 10 to 17, and four adults became sick with vomiting and diarrhea over the past few days.

The people at the summer enrichment camp exhibited symptoms consistent with norovirus, which can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

The camps at which the kids got sick were scheduled to end Saturday.

UNC has contacted the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment for testing. Custodians have disinfected the buildings in which the campers slept and took classes.
