The Summer Camp Mystery created by Gertrude Chandler WarnerThe Summer Camp Mystery created by Gertrude Chandler Warner

The Aldens are going to summer camp at a camp that has an Olympic competition each summer. Things don’t go well from the start. Their luggage is lost. The flag, which was Henry’s responsibility, disappears from his cabin.  Someone steals one of their ideas. The Aldens aren’t sure who seems to be sabotaging their camp experience.

What I liked

Ah, camp shenanigans — like the time we stole a girl’s panties and ran them up the flagpole, complete with passive aggressive notes. She wasn’t very nice.

Part of camp is about pranking other campers, which is something the Aldens have not escaped.

What I didn’t like

I don’t feel like there’s a lot of content to this book. Maybe it was just my mindset while reading it.

Overall

You’re probably going to get pranked at camp.

Weigh in

Did you ever go to camp?

Did you play pranks at camp, if you went?
