The Lakeside Ghost Story
My stomach was churning as the big bold letters came into view. They read,
“Camp Lakeside.” The bus came to a sudden stop and a counselor at the front of the bus
stood up and yelled, “Everyone off!” A stampede of eager campers rushed from the bus,
into the bright sunshine of Lakeside camp.
I had been looking forward to the camp for a few months and now that I am here I
can’t believe it. My friend Justin saved a bunk beside his. I arrived also to the good
news that I wouldn’t need to take the swimming test. Although I’m not a great swimmer,
I made some major improvements last year.
That night for dinner we had chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli. For
After we were finished unpacking, we had some free time until 7:45, which gave us thirty minutes to play. The officer looked puzzled and said "Lakeside Camp burned down over 30 years ago. I got a little suspicious when after dinner we were ordered to go to our cabins and unpack. We ran as fast as we could towards what we thought was the direction of the road. After dinner, we were given the same rules as the day before. I played until 7:30, then hid in a bush with my friend Tommy. The two counselors walked quite a distance until they abruptly stopped at an old campfire hangout. I had the urge to follow them, but my desire to stay out of trouble on the first day kept me from following them. We approached slowly and carefully trying not to make a sound when both of them turned around and said hello little kiddies and vanished leaving their lifeless clothes on the ground. My friends and I played throughout the scorching hot day. He had also seen something that night, but thought it was nothing. That"tms when I looked back and noticed that Tommy wasn"tmt behind me. At around 8:00 we saw the same two counselors walking in the same place so we followed them at a safe distance.
