  10. 10. Kate and the Mystery Camp written by Emily and Claire **with help from YOU, the reader!
  11. 11. This summer was definitely not going to be like any other. For one, you are attending summer camp for the first time, and you're not too sure about it. Although your mom and dad constantly assure you that you will have a great time and meet new friends, you still go to sleep the night before camp with a very nervous stomach. As the sun rises and you get dressed, you continue to anxiously await the bus that will deliver you from your corner to your living quarters for the next week. All through the lonely bus ride, you wonder, what will the other kids be like and what activities will you do while you are at camp?? But when the bus arrives and you step off you see a most shocking sight...NOTHING. That's right, no one is anywhere in sight. You have a decision to make as the bus quickly pulls away. Do you... Walk into a cabin marked "Office" OR Run into the nearby woods and look for a nearby camp that might be the right one.
  12. 12. As you open the door to the cabin marked "Office" you see an even more peculiar sight. Sitting in the chair behind the desk is a raccoon. Now what do you do? Ask the raccoon for help. OR Run out into the woods and look for a nearby camp.
  13. 13. You decide to go explore the woods in hopes that a more populated camp is nearby. After much wandering and walking you realize that you are tired, thirsty, and hungry. The apples hanging off the branches of the trees look like just the solution to your problems. But as you reach up and pluck one off, you surprisingly hear the tree exclaim, "Excuse me, did you ask for that apple?" You need to make a quick decision. Do you? Keep going, faster now. OR Apologize and ask the tree for help.
  14. 14. You begin to run, faster than you knew you could run, when those pesky apple trees start throwing apples at YOU! One hits you square on the head knocking you out... ...and when you finally come to, you hear your alarm clock interrupting your dream and forcing you to realize that maybe summer camp won't be QUITE SO BAD, after all!
