Michael McMichaels is at summer camp with his friend, Kenny, but as they check in for the week, he realizes something is terribly amiss. Instead of simply letting the kids swim and play games all week, the camp counselors have other plans. They will all be competing for the lofty prize of Camper of the Week.
The competitive spirit rises up in most of the campers, making them take risks and scheme in ways they might never have dreamed about before. But being Camper of the Week becomes their most important goal. And if they cheat or scare others off, so what? It’s only in the name of friendly competition.
The Creepy Campers is a humorous look at cheating and deception taken to extremes, and why it’s such a disastrous idea. Kids will enjoy reading this funny story while learning a lesson in the process.
