Nearly 30 summer campers and an adult were brought to a hospital after being stung by wasps while hiking at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Connecticut.

Officials at the center say a group from the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Bridgeport was hiking on a trail Thursday afternoon when they walked over a nest of yellowjackets in the ground.

A woman in the group was taken to Stamford Hospital by ambulance after being stung multiple times. Twenty-seven elementary and middle school-age children were also stung and brought to the hospital as a precaution. The woman’s condition isn’t known.
