Camp Pepin open for business after cleaning from top-to-bottom
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

A camp in far western Wisconsin is re-opening today, after about four dozen fifth-graders got sick during their annual spring visit last week. The director at Camp Pepin, Mike Melstad, says everything has been sanitized from top-to-bottom. That was after almost 50 youngsters from Farmington Minnesota came down from what officials thought was the novo-virus. The 78-year-old Camp Pepin is located near Stockholm on the Wisconsin side of the border with Minnesota. It's run by the Y-M-C-A of Red Wing Minnesota. Officials believe a youngster brought the virus to the camp and got others sick last Tuesday night. School principal Laura Pierce said youngsters reported similar symptoms before the outbreak at Camp Pepin.
