New Camper in Camp Kidney
Chapter 1: A female camper at camp kidney?!
A/N: THIS IS AN OLD STORY FROM 2007. I never uploaded it before because I never finished it.
Today was an important day at Camp Kidney. Because, today was the day that a new camper was arriving. A FEMALE camper. A female camper at Camp Kidney...
Commander HooHa had sent a female camper to Camp Kidney to prove his point that boys & girls could not camp together...in his opinion. So he had chosen one of the most timid & delicate girls he could find thinking she could not cope at a boys camp. Her name was Claire. She was a white kitten with long brown hair wearing a red ribbon & carrying a yellow toy bunny.
This had all started because Slinkman had suggested putting the Bean scouts & the Squirrel scouts together thinking they were old enough...and because he wanted to try & benefit Camp Kidney's finances by sharing money with Acorn Flats!
Commander HooHa was furious at the idea of putting his daughter Patsy with boys (as he was in the Valentines Day episode) and set out to prove his point of it not working...as well as saying no.
Scout Master Lumpus had called all the boys outside. They lined up and Lumpus spoke to them of what was to happen.
"OK bean scouts" he said. "We have a new camper arriving at Camp Kidney today. A GIRL camper."
They all gasped.
"What?!" Edward shouted, thinking the idea was outrageous. Girls at our camp?!
Lumpus didn't like where this was headed. He LIKED the idea of sharing money with Acorn Flats- especially as that meant spending more time with Miss Doe! And the only way for that to happen was for the girl to get on at Camp Kidney and be accepted by Commander HooHa. So he tried to encourage the boys into the idea.
"You know, she's very pretty" he told them; trying to interest them.
"Not as pretty as Veronica!" Edward blurted out.
All the other scouts turned to look at him. "Who's Veronica?" they asked.
Edward's heart stopped. A sweatbead fell from his face. Whoops, he thought. His Veronica doll was his biggest secret. "Oh, no-one" he lied nervously.
Just then, saving Edward from embarassment, was Slinkman with the new camper.
"Oh, here she is now!" sung Lumpus, dancing over to the Camp bus which Slinkman & the girl were in.
The boys were still reluctant about a girl joining their camp. All except for Lazlo. Being the happy & friendly monkey that he was, he couldn't wait to welcome the new camper.
"I wonder what her name is?" Lazlo said excitedly. "And if she'll want to play all sorts of games with us, and if she'll be in Jelly cabin, and if she'll want to be friends forever-"
"LAZLO DON'T YOU GET IT?!" Edward burst.
"She's a GIRL. And we don't allow GIRLS at our camp!"
"Yeah!" the others agreed.
"I mean, shouldn't she be a squirrel scout or something?!" Edward protested. "Not a bean scout! Bean scouts are BOYS!"
"Yeah!!" agreed the others again.
"When she gets off that bus we're gonna let her know she's not welcome here!!!" Edward shouted, starting a campaign.
"Yeah!!!" they all agreed.
