In brief: Diarrhea
Campylobacter is a bacterial genus that includes the species "jejuni" which is one of many bacterial species that often cause acute, infectious diarrhea.
It is self-limiting, rarely lasts >7-10 days, and can be treated with antibiotics but doesn't necessarily require treatment other than fluid replacement.
