The Summer Camp Mysteries

The Summer Camp Mysteries

by David A. Adler Illustrated by Joy Allen

Cam Jansen and her best friend Eric are spending three weeks at Camp Eagle Lake, and they couldn't be more excited. But mysteries seem to follow supersleuth Cam everywhere, and it isn't long before she's using her photographic memory to "click, click" and save the day

There are three mysteries in this super special, extra long Cam Jansen. In "The First Day of Camp Mystery," Cam's and Eric's parents have just brought them to camp when the lockbox with everyone's spending money goes missing. Can Cam find the thief? Then, in "It's a Raid," Cam's bunk is raided. She and her new friends search out the culprit, and might even raid them back. In "The Basketball Mystery," Cam and Eric discover that all the sports equipment has been stolen, along with the prizes for the end-of-season banquet. Can Cam solve the case in time?

These three Cam Jansen mysteries are super special indeed, and make for perfect summer reading.
