Officials say one hit the other in the back end -- and at the time staff members determined there were no apparent injuries and declined an ambulance response.

"One of the buses started to slow down and in the process, the minibus hit the bus in front of it. It was so minor it wasn`t even apparent what had happened at first," Jill Bauer, student volunteer program coordinator for Barrington High School said.

"I was fine and everyone on our bus was fine," Chris Nevarez, Barrington High School senior said.

A couple of hours later, a number of teens on the school buses indicated they were not feeling well -- when they were at the YMCA's Camp MacLean in Burlington.

Of the 55 people (adults and students) on the bus, ten were taken to area hospitals for further examination. They have all been treated and released.

Six were taken to Aurora Burlington. Four were taken to All Saints Racine.
