Pendalouan Press Sesson Six

The second to last issue of the Pendalouan Press 2007! We are in our last week of summer camp. It is a sad time, but counselors are working hard to make sure all the campers have as good a time as those campers from session one. This weekend is, of course, Father Son Camp. A very old Pendalouan Tradition, we will be welcoming many older and new generations of families for the weekend.

Here is the Pendalouan Press, featuring a few scary stories written by our campers.



The Haunted Lake By Harley Tyler

The haunted lake was black, dark, and bodies were floating. You could hear screams from people who died and staff were flying through the air. If you went in the lake and got out you would disappear.


Haunted House By August Lee

One family thought that they had a portal to the underworld in their basement. They had to call a ghost hunter to get it away. Then they went to sleep in the living room and the mattress went up and down like a heat beat and breathing. Then it was gone.


Popcorn Flood By August Lee

One day at school the popcorn machine broke and popcorn went crazy. So the principal tried to fix it but he could not fix it. The children swam in the popcorn. The one kid had some ideas. His first idea was to get a bag and scoop some up and eat it and call mechanic.

The Ghost of Ottawa Cabin By Katie Slajus

One day Katie, Ryann, and Sarah walked into Ottawa cabin to change out of their swimsuits. Their friends Anna and Cassidy were right behind them. They were changing when all of a sudden the fan turned on, they wondered what happened and then Ryann turned it off. A couple minutes later the doorknob rattled like someone was going to come in. Katie looked out the window and saw no one. That night Katie went to sleep with her window closed and Ryann went to sleep with her window open. The next morning Katie window was open and Ryann was closed. It was then they thought of the answer Ottawa Indians haunted their cabin. So if you’re ever in Ottawa be careful. They might haunt you too.

Poems by Claire Cebelak

Sticky. Very Icy
A weird X-ray is shown to Dr. Tina
You have a yucky sickness

Clear skies are low today.
A cake is being iced and frosted
Rain begins to elope together

Worm, worm
Likes to squirm and eat
Worms like to wiggle and sleep
Worm doesn’t die of food
Worm you love to squirm

Weird Wonderful smells
Elope and they Icy
And they ring with Desire

Hair is on your head
Ears are on the sides
Ears help you hear
Loud is loud and you are you
The sun is hot
