Lea  Bowski (thebigleabowski) I read this book sometime in the mid to late 80's so I imagine it was published around then. I don't remember much other than a group of teenagers (six of them, IIRC) were sent off to this summer camp. They thought it was going to be a wilderness 'survival' kind of program only to learn that the guy running the camp was paid a lot of money to murder them all. The kids band together to outpace him and come out alive. At least I think that's how it ends. I haven't thought about this book in years but a recent conversation about the Hunger Games reminded me of it.

Glad you're enjoying it! I was wondering if it held up after all this time. I found a library that has a copy - just need to get over there and check it out. :)
