Camps are being advised to be on the alert for sick children. Parents are being told to be ready to take their youngsters home if they become ill.

As the weather gets warmer, the number of cases of swine flu is dropping, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the H1N1 virus is appearing at camps just as it did in schools.
