Welcome

CAMP 

“I can’t believe that our parent’s all agreed for us to spend the summer. At some camp that none of us ever heard of before”
“Instead of letting us, stay at my uncle’s dude ranch. I mean who lets their kids, go off to the middle of nowhere, without knowing where that place is like?” Tommy Cub whined as he stared out the camp bus window
“Tommy, are you going to whine and complain the whole time we’re out here?” They didn’t just dump us off. Cookie’s mom researched the camp before our parents all agreed that it’d be a great place for our summer vacation,” Daisy Penguin frowned
“Oh yah, for all they know we can all be slaughter as soon as we get there,” Tommy smirked. And before Daisy could answer him back the bus driver yelled

“Okay, everyone off the bus!” 

They followed the driver off the bus and collected their bags
“Why did we’ve to get off out here?” Is the camp around here cause all I see is just a bunch of over grown trees,” Sammy Turtle frowned. The bus driver laughed at Sammy, before he answered him
“It’s just through that pebble path you can’t miss it,”
He then shut the baggage door shut and walked back inside the bus
“Okay kids, you all have a great time here at camp Joy-Joy, and I’ll meet you all right back here in a week,” The bus driver smiled. He gave them all a wave good-bye before he shut the bus doors and drove off 
“Oh great!” You’d think that someone from the camp would be here to pick us up,” Tommy sighed
“Tommy, would you please stop being such a whiner. You heard the driver the camp is just through those trees”
“So pick up your stuff and let’s get going. Since we all know by now how wonderful life would’ve been if we all would’ve just spent the summer at your uncle’s dude ranch!” Sammy laughed. The driver didn’t lie they only had to walk a short ways before they came across a wooden sign
That pointed towards the camp entrance 

“Oh wow!” It looks so—
“Peaceful,” Sammy finished for Cookie as they looked around the campgrounds
“Yah, but it also looks so empty,” Vicky Dragonfly added. “Shouldn’t there be kids running around and swimming in the lake,”
“They probably are inside that cabin over there,” Daisy answered her pointing to a stone cabin that looked bigger than the others
“They’re probably eating lunch or something,” She added
“Or the bus driver dropped us off at the wrong camp,” Tommy smirked
“Oh yah, right. Since all these camps are right next to one another I’m sure they get confused all the time”
“On which camp is which,” Daisy frowned. “I’m sure that they’re in there,” 
They followed the path down towards the cabin. Vicky opened the door and found a small hound dog staring out the window
“Umm, hi I’m Vicky, my friends and I just arrived at camp. And were wondering where everyone was at?”
“Hi, I’m Amy, I’m the only one here. Everyone else left a few days ago,” She sobbed
“Left?” Left for where? And why didn’t you go with them?” Cookie asked her frowning. A smile spread across Amy’s face before she busted out laughing
“Sorry you guys!” I couldn’t keep a straight face anymore, you can all come out now!” She cried out 
Soon the cabin was filled with smiling campers all of them just staring at the gang
“Hey!” What’s going on here? Was this some kina joke?” Tommy frowned
“Oh, don’t get upset little one, we do this to all the new campers. My name is Mr. Jug, your camp director, Amy why don’t you show them were their cabin’s”
“Then after you all finish unpacking I’ll see you kids a bit later at the campfire,” Mr. Jug smiled 

“So what’s there to do around here? Besides playing unfunny pranks on the new kids?” Tommy asked frowning. As they headed towards their cabins Amy, just laughed before she answered him
“Oh, there’s lots of things to do! We play sports, do arts and craft, we go swimming. And we’re also planning a fishing trip” Whoever catches the biggest fish will win twenty bucks”
“There’s only one thing--” 
A scream coming from the end of the cornfield interrupted Amy
“Oh my! This is just awful” The voice cried once they ran over towards him
“What’s the matter Mr. Howard?” Amy asked him
“The corn! It’s ruined!” He cried. The gang lend over to take a closer look and noticed, that the corn ear that he was holding. Had a nasty brown color to it and was filled with worms
“Oh gross!” Cookie cried out. “What’s wrong with it?”
“Sorry kids, but I can’t talk to you now I’ve to go and see if I can help the corn with my spell book,” He answered her
“You’re spell book?” Sammy asked frowning
“Yes, my spell book tells me everything that I need to know on how to take care of the crops. And other things around here” Now I’ve wasted enough time I’ve to run,” Mr. Howard explained
“What a total weirdo! He really believes in all that magic stuff,” Amy smirked as they watched him running off still mumbling to himself. And before Daisy could answer her back

A paw reached out from behind her and tapped her on the shoulder 
“Boo!” Tony Cow laughed
“Tony, you creep! You scared me half to death!” Amy cried out
“Relax Am, just trying to having some fun. What’s wrong with creepy Howie? He ran passed me like he had to go to the bathroom or something,” Tony shrugged
“Oh, he’s freaking out cause the corn ear that he was holding was filled with worms. And went to check that stupid spell book looking for a cure,” Amy explained
“Oh, so are you guys just going to stand around here waiting for him to come back? Or do something fun like taking out the boat for a spin,” Tony asked smiling 

Later that night the gang noticed that the camp director looked really nervous. Every time he’d look over to the table in where Mr. Howard was eating at. Cookie leaned over to Daisy and whispered in her ear
“Is it me or do you find that there’s something weird on how everyone’s acting?”
“Yah somewhat. But so far everything around here is a bit weird,” Daisy whispered back. Cookie was about to answer her back
When someone yelled out from across the room
“Hey Mr. Jug! Are you going to tell us one your famous ghost stories tonight?”
Mr. Jug glanced nervously at Mr. Howie then answered
“Umm, sorry kids, but it’s been a very long day. I think that it’s best if we just all call it a night”
“I’ll see you all bright and early,” 

A few minutes later they were back inside their cabins
“Was it only me to think how weird it was the way Mr. Jug, kept staring at Mr. Howie, like. He was scared of him or something,” Cookie asked them
“Yah, I could’ve swore that old Howie, nodded his head no. When that kid asked him about telling ghost stories” I thought that was part of the whole camp experience to sit around a big camp fire and spook another?” Tommy added 

“So what are we going to today?” Daisy asked them after breakfast
“Don’t know, why don’t we go by the lake and see if we can take the boat out again?” Tommy shrugged. A few minutes later the gang waved over towards Amy, who was getting out of the water and walked over towards them
“Hey guys! What’s up?” She asked them
“We were just looking for Tony, to see if we could take the boat out again,” Tommy answered her
“Oh, I saw him by the dock earlier. Come on I’ll walk you guys over,” Amy smiled 
Minutes later they found Tony sitting on the dock slowly rocking himself
“Tony, are you okay? What’s the matter?” Amy asked
“The water! He’s in the water!” He grabbed me and kept pulling me under until I finally broke myself free,” Tony sobbed
“Huh?” Who tried to pull you under?” Amy gasped
“I don’t know but I could’ve swore that it was Mr. Howard! He was the one who tried to drown me!”  Tony cried out
“Whoa, what! Either this is another dumb prank or you’ve been sitting out in the sun to long?” Tommy frowned
“It’s not a joke! He really tried to drown me! He yelled at them
“Okay, okay, we believe you let’s go back to our cabin and we can discuss it more,” Cookie added   
When they got back to their cabin they all read the words aloud that was written in big letters
On the walls

GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN! 

“Okay, you two start talking. What’s going on around here?” I know that you’re hiding something!” Tommy cried out. Tony looked over towards Amy’s direction and shrugged
“We might as well tell them it’s probably too late anyways,”
“Too late?” Too late for what? Enough with the riddles and tell us what’s going on already! Sammy cried out
“Okay, we’ll tell you, there have been stories going around from the older counselors about campers disappearing into thin air. And they say its all because--,” Amy began
“Well hello kids!” Nice day isn’t it? Have any of you seen Mr. Jug around?” A voice from the door way interrupted her
“Umm, I saw him earlier by the food hall,” She mumbled 
“Oh, I looked there just a few minutes ago I must’ve just missed him. “Okay, well you kids, have a good day and I’ll see you all a bit later,” Mr. Howie smiled before he walked away 
“Now there goes one weird dude,” Sammy muttered
“Yah, he didn’t even seem to notice what was written on the wall 
“Look it’s not safe to talk here. I feel like there’s something is watching us,” Amy nervously started to explain. “I didn’t like the way he kept smiling like nothing was wrong. Let’s meet by the lake house tomorrow morning, if anyone asks you were you’re going just say that you’re taking a nature hike” I promise to tell you the rest of the story then,” She added. Then Tony and Amy left before the gang could answer her back 

The next morning the gang woke up to find that their shoes were all missing
“I can’t believe that someone broke into our cabins in the middle of the night and stole our shoes!” Daisy cried out
“I bet it was Tony and Amy, I bet this is another of their stupid jokes,” Tommy added frowning
“I don’t think it was them I’m telling you guys, there’s something very weird going on around here. I say we go and hear what they’ve to say,” Cookie told them 
A few minutes later they made their way towards the lake house waiting for Tony and Amy to arrive
“I wonder what’s taking them so long?” Sammy asked them
“I don’t know but I bet they’re not coming let’s just go back,” Tommy added
“Oh great!” Sammy groaned
“What’s the matter?” Vicky asked
“The stupid door doesn’t open its stuck or something!” He cried out as he continued trying to open the door. Cookie was about to answer when a loud noise made them all jump
“Now what?” Tommy frowned. Vicky took out a small flashlight from her back pocket and turned it on. They screamed when they saw that Tony and Amy was staring at them from across the room
“Whoa! Where did you come from?” Tommy cried out
“Yah, you nearly gave us a heart attack!  How long were you guys, hiding back there?” Daisy asked
“We sneaked in through the back door just in case we were followed. Cause if they found that we were talking to you about this we’d be in some real trouble,” Amy answered her
“If who found out? What are you talking about?” Cookie asked
“Mr. Howie, he’s gone mad. He told us that his spell book told him that we have to stay in camp so the crops could be saved!” That we’re all cursed and can never leave,” Amy started to explain
“What!” He can’t just keep us here against our will!” Sammy interrupted. Tony was about to answer him when a loud noise interrupted
“What was that?” Daisy asked
“Don’t know, but if Howie, really had become nutty it’s better that we go back before anyone notices that we’re all gone,” Vicky answered her back
“Good idea Vic, we can figure out how to escape easier without letting anyone knowing that we know what Mr. Howie’s up to,” Cookie agreed. Then after talking it over for a few more minutes they huddled close together making their way back to camp

“Umm, I don’t think that we’re going the right way. I don’t remember seeing that water fall on our way here,” Sammy told them
“Don’t start Sammy, you probably didn’t notice it before. Let’s just keep going the faster we get back the better we’ll all feel,” Tommy answered him back smiling 
They continued following the riverbank but after a few more minutes Sammy repeated
“Are you guys, sure that we’re going the right way?”
“Shh! Did you hear that?” Vicky asked them
“Yah, it sounds like someone’s beating on some drums. But I can’t tell which way it’s coming from it sounds like it’s coming from all over,” Cookie answered her
“It must be coming from over there! Were that smoke is coming from over those bushes!” Tommy cried out
“Are there could be some mass murders just waiting to chop us up into little bitty pieces. Just as soon as we walk through those bushes,” Sammy smirked
“Wow!” Sammy, there’s a spirit! Now let’s go before I starve to death,” Tommy answered him back laughing 
Still huddled together they walked over to it and onto a bunch of kids who were sitting around a big campfire. Who just stared at them with big smiling faces
“Oh wow!” Talk about your perfect timing I was just about to tell one of my famous ghost stories!” Mr. Jug smiled. “Where have you kids been?”
“Oh umm, we went for early afternoon hike and just lost track of time,” Cookie shrugged
“I see, any ways you kid look hungry why don’t you go to the food hall and see if the cook can fix you up a snack or something. “I talk to you kids a bit later,” Mr. Jug smiled then walked away before the gang could answer him 
“Okay, I need someone to pinch me cause I feel like I just fell into the rabbit hole,” Daisy sighed. Cookie was about to answer her when Tony came running up to them

“Hey! Have any of you guys, seen Amy, around I’ve been looking for her since we got back. But I can’t find her,”
“Nope, but if we see her I’ll tell her that you’re looking for her,” Cookie answered him. Then after grabbing a quick bit
They decided to head towards Mr. Jug’s office to see if he could clear up what was going on
“It looks like he’s not here,” Tommy shrugged
“Yah, but there’s a phone,” Sammy told them before he went over to the desk and picked up the phone. Then put it back down again
“Oh great! There was no dial tone,”
“That’s because it’s not plugged into the wall,” A voice coming from the doorway cried out. They turned around to see Mr. Jug staring at them
“Oh umm, we were just looking for you,” Cookie began. “Have you seen Amy, around?”
“I believe that I saw her by the lake house a few minutes ago. Why don’t you go and see if she’s still there,” He answered her back smirking
“Umm, thanks, I guess we’ll see you later then,” She mumbled 
“I’m telling you guys, somehow we got sucked inside the twilight zone,” Daisy whispered over to them as they headed out towards the lake house. Tommy was about to answer her when a startled cry for help interrupted him
“Now what?” Cookie thought to herself as they rushed over to see who had cried out
“Amy! How did you get down there?” Vicky asked her. Once she and the others looked down the hole and saw who it was
“Mr. Howie, hit me over the head with something then threw me in here,” Amy began. “So I couldn’t tell you guys the truth. He figured if he keeps me in here you’d never find out and it’d be too late!”
“Too late for what?” Daisy asked frowning
“To escape then you’ll never see your parents again! Now please help me out of here before they come back!” She cried out. The gang just looked at each other with scared and confused looks on their faces  

A few minutes after Amy was out of the hole. She dusted herself then took off running
“Hey Amy! Wait up!” Where are you going?” Cookie yelled after her
“We’ve to get out of here before they come back!” Amy cried
“This is totally nuts,” Cookie thought to herself as she and the others continued to run after Amy. A few seconds later the sounds of drums floated through the woods
“Oh no!” They know just keep--,” Amy was interrupted when she bumped right into Mr. Jug
“Amy, what were you thinking? Did you really think that we’d just let you break the rules and leave?” He asked her frowning
“I don’t care I hate it here! And I hate you!” You can’t keep me here any longer!” She yelled at him
“Will someone please tell us what’s going on around here?” You’re not really keeping us here against our will are you?” Vicky asked
“But of course we’re!” Mr. Howie laughed
“Huh? Are you two crazy or something?” You can’t just keep us prisoners in here and think you’ll get away with it!” Daisy cried out
“Now, now let’s not get our furs all ruffled. Let’s just all claim down and let me explain,” Mr. Howie told them
“Don’t listen to him! He’s only going to lie to you!” Amy began yelling. Mr. Howie only ignored her outburst as he continued 
“You see kids, many years ago this camp was built over some hollow ancient ground. Years later the spirits that once lived here returned and cursed anyone who stepped foot on it”
“But instead of killing us off they offered us a deal instead,”
“What kind of deal?” Cookie asked
“A very powerful one. You see during the winter months we all go to into a deep sleep. But each summer the whole camp including us, we come back to life”
“We promised to take care of the land, we keep it pure and grow new crops and cure those that are not doing so well. And in return we’re kept alive so now do you understand if we allowed you to help her escape we’d have broken our part of the deal”
“Our secret would have been exposed and the spirits of the land would’ve given the power to punish us for it,” Mr. Howie answered her
“Oh wow! We almost destroyed the whole camp without even knowing it!” The girls cried out in unison. Mr. Howie looked up towards the sky 
“We’ve to hurry and get everything ready. It’s almost time for us to rest again,”
“Okay, don’t let us stop you just tell us how we can get out of here. And we’ll be on our way,” Sammy smiled. And before any of them could answer him back

Amy took out a lighter from her pocket and lite one of the trees
“Amy, no!” Stop you don’t know what you’re doing!” Mr. Howie yelled out horrified
“Who cares! Let it all burn!” Amy sang out happily
“Sammy, quick! Grab those blankets and help me put it out!” Tommy cried out. A few seconds later the fire was out
“Oh, thank you! Now quick ran towards the river as fast as you can. And remember to always keep our secret safe”
“Now go! Before it’s too late!” Mr. Howie yelled as he and the others began to fade away  

They took off running as fast as they could along the river. And didn’t stop until they came across the water fall
“Oh wow! How are we going to go through it we don’t have any canoes or life jackets,” Sammy asked. “Maybe we should turn around and find a way around it,”
“No, you heard Mr. Howie, we’ve no choice we’ve to go through it. If we want to get back home canoes or no canoes,” Tommy answered him. Then huddled close together they climbed to the top then jumped
“We’re never going to make it,” Cookie thought to herself. As she closed her eyes and before she jumped she could’ve swore that she heard Mr. Jug’s voice whisper in her ear
“Relax, you’re all safe you helped us save our land now we’ll return the favor,”
 
A few minutes later they were back on dry land
“Wow!” We made it! This is where the bus dropped us off!” Tommy cried out happily. And before any of them could answer him back. The bus driver walked over to them and said
“Sorry, that it took so long to fix the flat tire. But you kids, can get back on now and I’ll drop you off at camp!”
