Meth found at Colo. summer camp

BAILEY, Colorado – Authorities say about 40 girls and boys attending a mountain summer camp have been evacuated after trace amounts of methamphetamines were found in three buildings.

The children were taken to a nearby high school Wednesday. The National Farmers Union, which owns the camp, says they are all safe.

The camp is near Bailey, about 35 miles southwest of Denver.

Farmers Union Vice President Clay Peterson says traces of the drug were found during a search done at the suggestion of the camp’s new caretaker, who is a sheriff’s deputy.

Court records show the previous caretaker had been arrested in April on drug and weapons charges.

Peterson says camp staffers were alerted to the contamination Wednesday night.
