    Main Camp

    The Main Camp is a large, beautiful meadow. In the center, there is a large pile of stones, called the RockPile. Surrounding it are all the dens, and the freshkill log. There is a bubbling springs off to the side, for water-loving cats to bathe in. The camp is barricaded by thick, thorny deathberry bushes, so entrance is near impossible. The only entrance and exit is a small hole that leads to a tunnel. However, the hole is hidden by a gorse bush.
