Ah… another wonderful day at Camp Campbell. All that’s left to do now is recharge with a full eight hours of lying in bed… Awake! Waiting for tomorrow! Alright, guys, our first attempt to bust out of this god-forsaken hellhole didn’t work. But tonight’s gonna be different. Because we have a secret weapon… Billy Nikssilp. Call me “Snake.” He’s ex-Woodscouts. And he’s one of the best. Isn’t that right, Billy? *biting* Got my search-and-rescue badge in two weeks… Got my wilderness survival in one. That’s amazing! I never had a choice. The Woodscouts are some of the most intense, militant campers on Lake Lilac. Billy here escaped. …And why is he helping us? I’m not doing this for YOU. I made a vow. *Crickets chirping* …Well, o-kay, let’s get in the boat! So… what’re you gonna do on the outside? Probably live with the animals. Try and get raised by wolves, maybe work my way up to alpha. Pee on stuff. What about you guys? I think I’ll go to my dad’s house and tell him that mom sent me to an abusive summer camp. Pretend to like him more so she’ll try to buy back my love. That’s really dark, Neil. How ’bout you, Max? …Max? Billy… Where are you taking us? …Shortcut. *gasp* Aah! JESUS CHRIST! YO! WHAT GIVES?! NO GIRLS ALLOWED! NIKKI! Neil, quick! Grab his-! Aw, shit. *THUD* You never left them, did you Billy?! I made a vow… to show others the glory of the Woodscouts. And I told you… TO CALL ME SNAKE. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH! There’s a place I know that’s tucked away, A place where you and I can stay, Where we can go to laugh and play, And have adventures every day! I know it sound hard to believe, but guys and gals, it’s true! Camp Cambell is the place for me and you! We’ll swim through lakes and climb up trees, Catch fish, bugs, bears and honeybees There’s endless possibilities, AND NO, THAT’S NOT HYPERBOLE! Our motto’s “Campe Diem,” And that means I’m telling youuuuuuuuuuu….. We’ve got: Archery, Hiking, Search-and-Rescue, Biking, Horseback, Training that will save you from a heart attack, Scuba-diving, Miming, Football, Limbo, Science, Stunting, Pre-calc, Spaceships, Treasure Hunting, Bomb defusal, No refusal, Fantasy, Circus Trapeze, And Fights and Ghosts and Paints and Snakes and Knives and Chess and Dance and Weights! It’s Camp Camp! *Groans* WAKE UP! Aah! Ah! H-wa? …Nikki? What am I wearing? Where are we? Where happiness goes to DIE. OH. MY. GOD. Is that… Nikkaaaaay? Heh, hey… guys… You know them? Ew, who is thaat? Tabbii, Erin, pleeze. A Flower Scout always welcomes others with daintyness and respaact. …Flower scouts? *Angelic chorus* Nikki? YOU were a Flower Scout? Ugh, yeah… …But they were totally boring, so I bailed. *Ahem* It’s sooo good to see you again, Nikki. And, um…? Neil: Ne-
Nikki: ANCY! Nee-ancy…? YES! It’s uh… spelled REALLY DUMB, it’s French. Oooh! Fraaance! I’m Tabbii, with two “i’s!” Well, come on, Neeancy! Our morning activities are starting! …You can come too, Nikki. Man, we really lucked out. GRaraARgrah! Hey… you think Max is okay? *Sirens and thunder* Why do yoU KEEP HITTING ME?! AND WHY IS IT ONLY CLOUDY OVER YOUR SIDE OF THE LAKE?! That’s enough, Petrol. Don’t want to over-tenderize the new meat. Who the hell are you? Cedar Scout, First Class, Edward Pikeman. Senior Patrol Leader of Woodscout Troop 818. And it looks like you’re our latest recruit. God, your face is gross. …What…? Oh, sorry, that just slipped out… Dude… Sorry… I know… That was mean. It really was… It’s just… you were so close… Enough! Enrollment into our organization has reached and all-time low. So we have no choice but to forcibly recruit new members into our program. I mean, have you considered that enrollment is low because you guys do things like kidnap other campers? Oh, we don’t kidnap campers… That’d be immoral. Max: That guy LITERALLY stabbed me in the back. No… he RESCUED you. After you ran away from Camp Campbell. Remember? And now… we’re going to make a Woodscout out of you… MAX.>Prepare the ropes course!
