Today’s post is from Laine P., who's camp story is just as disgusting as it is hilarious. Check out this brief story from her summer stay at Camp Point Clear.
Ok so, my story is kinda gross so if you don’t like anything gross I wouldn’t recommend sticking around. So one night in the middle of camp they announced at dinner that the night activity was “scavenger hunt” and I like scavenger hunts so I was excited. So we went back to our cabins to get ready then went down to the courtyard. How it worked was the two people in charge of each crew, (there are two crews) yelled things out like- a pair of goggles or the camp banner and you had to go find it. We only had 45 minutes so we had to run. I listened but did not hear anything I could get. Then she called out “Someone go get horses poop!” All I thought was ewww. Then all the sudden the crew leader points at me and some other girl I had never met and says, “you two go get horse poop!” Neither of us move and she said “What are you waiting for?” So we took off running with our headlamps down the trail to see if there was any poop on the trail...
Not surprisingly about halfway down the trail there was a big fat poop. The other girl, whose name I later found out was Rosie, gave me the bag the crew leader had given her and told me she was going to barf if she had to pick it up. I was like, “ugh ok?” So I carefully put my hand in the bag and slowly lowered it until it was right over the poop. I picked it up and gave it to Rosie, and she closed it. Well tried to. As we were sprinting back to the table to put the poop on it, Rosie slipped and the bag opened, and all of that poop landed right on my shoe! “Omg I’m sooooo sorry!” Rosie said. I was afraid of what I was going to see when I looked down. I eventually got the courage to look down and ewwww it was not pretty. Poop was smeared all over my ankle and my shoe. Right then after seeing all the commotion a counselor came over and her jaw dropped. She picked me up and brought me to the hose closest to us while I was explaining what happened to her. “That was quite the story” she said! “Ok all done” she said after cleaning me off for what seemed like days. Rosie had already gone to put the poop on the table a long time ago and the scavenger hunt was long over, so I went back to my cabin to tell my cabin mates the story of the “falling horse poop!”
Wow, Laine! If I had to sum up your story with just one word it would be, “Eeeeewwwwwwww!” I can’t believe your cabin leaders had you go collect horse doo. I bet she regretted it when she had to clean your ankle and shoe off. This story had, not just me, but the whole office here at Everything Summer Camp in hysterics! I’m sorry this happened to you, but thanks for the laugh! It’s a good one. For everyone else, check out Camp Point Clear if you don’t mind falling horse poop.
