UNDATED -- The H1N1 virus is costing some Oklahoma kids their summer camp.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association had to cancel its annual summer camps this year because of the illness.

The MDA says the decision is a preemptive move to protect children from the virus.

They say children with the disease are more vulnerable to the virus because of their weakened respiratory muscles.

Out of 1,800 children who've attended MDA camps this year, 11 cases of the H1N1 virus were reported after the children left.
