I am never really a fan of summer camp books and most importantly I don't dig stories with kids disobeying their parents. Well I guess that's the moral of the story...DO NOT DISOBEY YOUR PARENTS.
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!

Goosebumps was so popular when I was a kid, I would get invovled in fights in the library over who got to che

THE HORROR AT CAMP written by R.L.Stine is a horror story which happens to two little kids.

On the way to the family trip, two children who are Wendy and her younger brother Elliot got lost.
The trailer two kids were riding on rolled downhill without their children.
When Wendy opens the door, there was someone looked weird. This man was waiting for them with grinning smile...

The main character,Wendy, is a very careful girl. Buddy who is the owner of a horror camp always tempt them with funny eve

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 from 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 ...more

Wendy and her younger brother Elliot are on a road trip with their parents, which Elliot and Wendy hates because they wanted to go to summer camp. The Wyoming countryside does very little to excite the two kids, so Wendy suggests that maybe she and Elliot could ride in the trailer hitched behind their car. Once inside the trailer, the two kids merrily pass the time as the trailer accelerates down the highway. When the ride gets a little bumpy, the kids assume their mother is driving, but the tra ...more

The way the monster was killed was stupid but I liked the relationship between the brother and sister. They weren't psychopaths towards each other.

One of my favorites. :)
This book was one of my childhood favourites! It was one of the first Goosebumps books I ever read and it was so enjoyable to re-read it!

This story follows Wendy and Elliot who start the book in the back of their parent's car bored senseless. After convincing their parents to let them sit in the caravan they're hitching, they start to realise they are moving backwards! To their horror they became unhinged. They roll down a hill and into camp Jellyjam, a sports camp with the slogan 'Only the Best
Ahhh, the Goosebump days. I would borrow so many of these from the library they seriously considered extending my limit of books checked out at one time. R.L. Stine you were a reprieve from a harsh and dreary childhood in which my mind wandered far away from the troubles of the day. I stole books into my bed and read far into the night by the faintest of lights. I might have better eyesight were it not for you; however, I regret not one page or line.

This is the first Goosebumps I read in over 10 years, and I am reminded of how one-dimensional the characters and how cringe-worthy the dialogues are.

Wendy and Elliot talk their parents into letting them ride in the trailer during a ride to camp, and somehow the trailer becomes unhitched. They roll down a hill and land by Camp Jellyjam where instead of being panicked and checking for injuries or trauma and making sure to contact their parents and the authorities, the kids immediately join sports

*Since this book only took a mere hour to read, I will not be doing my Pre-Reading, Just Startin' Out, Mid-way, etc. Probably this should be expected for all children's books, for future reference.
I wasn't as impressed as I'd hoped I would be with my first Goosebumps of the millennium. Considering I hadn't read one in nearly two decades, I thought I'd give Horrors at Camp Jellyjam a try. It wasn't one of those that I'd read earlier and looked fairly interesting.
I have to admit, I was surprised

The first 'idol' of mine I ever met was R.L. Stine. I met him at a book signing in my childhood. I had a meringue after, and learned that I don't like meringue. But I liked Goosebumps. Now I don't like Goosebumps.

I read this expecting to enter a euphoric state of nostalgic bliss, and was sorely disappointed. The story is just awful, Stine throws a twist in the end that has no basis in the rest of the story, it just kind of happens completely randomly. The earthquakes that shake Camp JellyJam are
This book has everything that will keep a young reader entertained…excitement, intrigue, mystery, terror, and of course grossness! I think that R.L. Stine is one of the best “horror” writers for children because he finds a way to empower the young characters of his books to find their own solutions to their problems. Problem-solving is definitely a necessity in the world, and I love how Stine can empower children to solve problems and think for themselves in a manner that appeals to them. True, ...more
This is more of an overall review of the series, really. When I was a kid, I used to devour these books, but sadly I'd recently somehow managed to forget all about them. I was reminded, however, when I rediscovered this awesome blog: These books are a mixture of varying degrees of terrible and amazing - at the same time. I honestly find it really hard to rate them, seeing as they're such a major part of my reading foundation. 11 year-old me would probably have given ...more

1. Bingo board category: Female protagonist.

2. Why I decided to read it: I have read some of R.L. Stine's other books and I enjoyed them.

3. What I liked and why: What I liked about the book was that it was creepy, mysterious and fun to read. I Enjoy books that you get a excitement out of and all the build and information is reveild at the end.

4. What I didnt like about the book and why: What I didnt like about the book was that the author says that the book will give you a "scare" but he exagera

Another book in the colossal Goosebumps series. This book won't win any awards or change any lives, but if your kids enjoy books about scary people, monsters, and/or aliens, the Goosebumps series is a good way to sate their hunger.

I think I have read this book before, but I don't remember what happened in the story, so I read it again. The story talks about Wendy and Elliot who end up in King Jellyjam's Sports Camp. The camp is creepy and strange because the counselors are always smiling. The 2 siblings decided to join activities in the camp while waiting for their parents. But strange things start to happen. Many of the kids that won six king coins are missing, so they decide to solve the mystery.

One of the more unsettling books by R.L. Stine. The actual horror is less than the pervasive sense of unease that still sticks with me years afterward. I read it so many times the binding started falling off.

This was a fun Goosebumps book. In a way it's plot is reflected in many modern horror movies and tv shows.

I don't even believe it has only 3 stars on this website, cuz' this was my favorite book from Goosebumps collection. The beginning was so cool I could only think about it has an alternative world, the camp and all that great stuff, I wanted that when I was a kid, it would be a dream and I loved sports that time, now I don't though. The final was kinda... Eww, I think it ruined somehow the book because it was so non-sense I don't even want to descrive it, but at the end I can tell I loved the boo ...more
If this were real it would be really scary. *shivers at the idea*
Wendy and Elliot are going to this camp King Jellyjam's Sports Camp. This camp is all about playing sports. Wendy isnt a fan os sports but her brother Elliot is. The counselors at the camp are always happy no matter what, and Wendy gets suspicious. At the night time Wendy always hears loud screams outside her window.

I would recommend this book to people who love to read books that always keep them at the edge of their seat. This was a good book.

If i were to rate this book out of ten, i would giv
This brings back so many memories...
Seriously this is awsome
creepy and silly.
Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection

I would've given this 4 stars. Only if the story was more solid. I still don't understand how their parents didn't realise the trailer had fallen off the back of the car and how. But I think the monster is inspired and kids will find it great. The story had some funny moments and it was pretty interesting. On a side note, the cover is one of the best and funniest in the series.
