Lists with This Book. Wendy’s cxmp Elliot is very competitive and a total sports nut. She however, is not so into sports.
So when they go to Camp Jellyjam, the sports camp, Wendy feels it’s kind of a downer. But she’s about to caml out that things are not all that they seen at this camp. Why haven’t they found us? Why hasn’t the camp found them? He dodged past me and started to the door. But I’m having a great time here. Don’t mess it up for me – okay? Stine must have been on some serious substances in because this book is flippin’ insane. The ending horroor so bizarre and so weird and so disturbing I am unsure whether there is a kid in existence who could take this seriously.
The book starts out shakily. Wendy 12 and her brother Elliot 11 are on a road trip with their parents.
Recap # Goosebumps # The Horror at Camp Jellyjam by R.L. Stine
They go into the trailer their parents are hauling behind their car to play. The trailer gets separated from the car and the kids roll downhill only to open the door and find themselves in the middle of a sports camp called King Jellyjam’s. O A camp counselor with the dubious name of “Buddy” offers to let them stay at camp. The kids go off with a strange man named Buddy, into the woods. O The camp is loaded with kids and huge sports complexes. Everyone is very competitive and serious about winning.
Every time nellyjam win at a sport, you are awarded with a gold coin with the image of a purple blob – King Jellyjam – stamped into it. If you get six coins you get to walk the Winners’ Walk, which is a huge honor.
Wendy and Elliot – seemingly unperturbed that they are separated jeellyjam their likely frantic parents – start entering swim races and ping-pong tournaments. The highly competitive Elliot thinks he’s in heaven.
After a few competitions, Wendy finally remembers she has a set of parents and gets the bright idea to call home. She has to find a pay phone because, hey, this is However – get this – she gets distracted from calling her parents after locating said payphone by her dorm-mates and forgets to call home. When she finally picks up the thread again, 8 chapters later, she realizes the phones are rigged so that no one can make outgoing calls.
Okay, that was scary, I have to admit. Wendy, who is not as athletically-inclined as her brother, has noticed some strange r things about camp.
Like the small earthquakes that happen multiple times a day. And the fact that everyone who has walked the Winners’ Walk has mysteriously vanished, never to be seen again.
The Horror At Camp Jellyjam
And she sees the counselors hurrying to some unknown meeting place late at night when all the campers are in bed. Okay, here is what’s going on: Is it a demon? The children who have won six competitions – the “Winners” – have the dubious honor of scrubbing the purple blob, who stinks really, really badly. It hates its own stench, apparently, and forces the “strongest kids” who have proven themselves by winning at sports!?!?!!?
The exhausted overworked children are being held prisoner and forced to do slave labor underground. The counselors are hypnotized? Unknown as to how the purple thing did this. Unknown as to why he can’t hypnotize the children. Also, he sweats snails. Yes, snails are popping out of his body at a rapid rate. Apparently snails’ origins are the underground secretions of a giant purple monster.
O Where is the camp getting these children? Wouldn’t people notice tons of missing kids? Who is funding the amazing sports arenas at the camp and the tons of food consumed by the children and counselors? Things get even weirder. Do you know how the beast dies?!?! Wendy tells everyone to lie flat on the floor.
The fat blobby thing is unable to pick them up with its chubby fingers and once it stops being constantly washed it suffocates to death on its own stench. You read that right. O This book has WTF? I can’t believe anyone would believe children would want to read this garbage. It’s fucking insulting to children’s intelligence. Tl;dr – I have to give this one star.
I know for a fact that Stine is capable of much better than this. Definitely skip this one, it’s not worth it. View all 20 comments.

Well I guess that’s the moral of the story As far as I can remember, this book was still fun and silly, but not as good as the other Goosebumps book series. The monster was kind of stupid, but the brainwashed campers were completely creepy!

For some odd reason I really like the camp books. Here you have wo kids who get detached from their parents literally The end up at a fun little sports camp. Right away I knew it was fiction when all the kids obeyed the camp rules! Anyways It was written in female first person and was done well.
I was entertained caml the start to the end. The ending was strange and kinda gross. On a side note the description on some sites is really off base no pun intended and is exactly why I don’t read the For some odd reason I really like the camp books. On a side note the description on some sites is really off base no pun intended and is exactly why I don’t read them. I don’t even read the ones on the back of the book.
Descriptions can kind of ruin the book, a spoiler if you will or a teaser. I don’t want surprises. I like to read as I go along and enjoy every surprise.
