Steve Clarkson thought being a counselor at Camp Redblood would be easy. That was before his young campers were viciously pranked by Camp Eagle, the local "supercamp" hell-bent on putting Redblood out of business. Now Steve must team up with a misfit Scout troop, led by the hot-tempered Leigh Carter, sneak into the enemy camp, and exact revenge. Standing in their way are haunted woods, treacherous trails, gruesome monsters, and an abandoned railway tunnel with an evil, blood-soaked history. Featuring an eclectic cast of awkward, inadequate heroes and psychotic, bullying villains, CAMP REDBLOOD AND THE ESSENTIAL REVENGE is a foul-mouthed summertime adventure for anyone who's ever had an impossible score to settle.
