The story setup was pretty nice. It always is.

A young boy embarks on a camp to a forest with his sister and school authorities. Only that is rumored to be more than just a camp. It is a survival battle.

Snakes and plot twists are as good as they can be!

But the end came and that was abrupt. Well that is, again, always is.

You know what they say in my lane, "You never know with Goosebumps".

Right, the end comes and settles the story. Then begins the Horrorland from where it left off in part #8. You

You didn't think that I just stopped after reading two books of Goosebumps, did you? Nah, I just had to go and pick up another one, albeit one from a different series. And now I'm dying to read this entire series. I guess, Goosebumps: Horrorland is the only series that is related to each other (sort of). And probably that is why I want to try it ASAP. I remember highlights from the previous novels, a few of which I had read. (Or maybe they were

Goosebumps: Welcome to Camp Slither
By R.L. Stine

Goosebumps: Welcome to camp slither by R.L. Stine is an exciting and adventurous book that makes you want to read it over and over again. It is very anticipating. I just love the series that goes with this book. The genre of this book is horror, it sends a creepy chill down your spine.
The protagonist of this book is a young boy named Boone. He is very brave doesn’t get afraid very easily. Some of the minor characters are

The kids are back to school and we are back to reading the Goosebumps Horrorland series. This book was about a snaky summer camp and kept the kids entertained. But, my favorite part is when the Horrorland story continues. We accidentally read book 9 before 8 so we will be reading 8 next.

During our thrift store adventures, we've been lucky enough to find a bunch of Goosebumps books, and this one is part of the Horrorland collection.

I used to read Goosebumps to my daughter when she was in primary school. And years before that, I used them to tutor English to kids.

So, of course I'm interested in checking out all the ones I haven't read.

“Welcome to Camp Slither” by R.L Stine is a fictitious story told by a young boy named Boone Dixon at a summer camp. Boone, and his older sister, Heather, are sent to Camp Hither for a fun summer vacation. The children however, know little about what they are getting themselves into.


This story is told from the perspective of Boone Dixon, a ten year old boy who loves adventuring. Boone has a sister named Heather who is a couple years older than him and acts like she is not afraid of anything. The

“Welcome To Camp Slither” was an okay book. Twelve-year-old Boone is going to summer camp with his sister Heather. Boone meets a boy named Roddy. Roddy is horrified by snakes and some older kids at school told him scary stories of snakes at the camp. They say there is a monstrous snake slithering around the camp. Things turn a bit scaley for the group and they may have bitten off more than they can chew with this camp.



Roddy was my favorite character in the book. Roddy is a quiet kid who is

I liked the suspenseful elements of this book. Boone and his sister, Heather, went to a summer camp called Camp Slither. Most of the kids were all the same age, and the camp counselors had been there for many years. There are many legends and stories about the camp, in which some are comical. All the camp counselors play tricks and pranks on the kids about a giant snake. It was fun to read and I was anxious to see what was going to happen next. Overall, this was a good book and I reccomend it to ...more

I give Camp Slither a 4 star rating. I liked the beginning of the book because it tells us about the characters. The setting takes place at Camp Slither. My favorite part is at the beginning when they play a prank on her brother. This book is a really good book.

Have you ever thought to yourself "What if Welcome to Camp Nightmare's big twist involved mad scientists instead of aliens"? Well, good news! This is just the book for you!

“Welcome to Camp Slither” follows twelve-year-old Boone and his ten-year-old obnoxious sister Heather as they go to a summer camp called Camp Hither for a couple weeks. There, they meet a kid named Roddy McDonald (his parents are jerks apparently), who tells them that everyone calls

CAMP SLITHER has an ostensibly creepier storyline than much of the rest of HorrorLand... perhaps because the snake potions and transmogrification are technologies that are probably being worked upon as we speak. Throw in a spooky old camp, a conspiracy theory, and mad scientists, and this is Fear Street level creepy (AKA Stine at his best).

It's sci-fi meets psycho-drama... which means it could happen.

Now that I've read like 6 of the horrorland books... you really need to get in the groove (ie,

Who doesn't have a love-to-hate relationship with snakes? But when the snakes are running the camp in a plot to destroy the campers, the situation gets even more slippery. This installment of Horrorland really crawled under my skin.

Book 9.

The main story was okay but not as exciting as others. Part one was just there.

Part two was more exciting. The children might be getting closer to answers.

Welcome to Camp Slither is based on Boone and his sister, Heather, who are excited about going to summer camp. On the bus, Boone meets a boy named Roddy, who knows all kinds of stories about Camp Hither. He knows that Camp Hither is also known as Camp Slither, and there's another story that says a huge snake named Serpo lives in the lake. Nobody believes Roddy, but a few days after camp starts Roddy goes home. Actually, Roddy gets tested on
