    Every summer, Jenna and her best friend Rebecca go to sleep away camp. And every summer up until this particular one, there was never really any summer camp type problems, nothing too weird or scary, and the days and nights would just flow along - perfect!

    This is a true scary story, and true scary stories are the best! But this summer, just three days into camp, sleepaway camp, a girl in their bunk woke up in the middle of the night screaming and crying. Everyone woke up, of course, and asked her what happened, what was wrong. She was literally as white as a sheet of paper and looked like she had just seen a ghost.

    When she had calmed down enough she told everyone that she had woken up and seen three creepy children sitting in the middle of the floor of their bunk holding hands. Everyone freaked out and started screaming and running around, but Jenna didn't believe it.

    She didn't believe until another girl ran up and said "wait, you saw it too? I thought it was just a dream I had." That was it - everyone started going crazy - until finally a camp director had to come in and quiet them down.

    After a scary sleepless night, Jenna and Rebecca went up to a counselor they knew and asked her if there were any summer camp legends involving creepy children showing up in the middle of the night.

    The counselor got very serious all of a sudden, knelt down, and told them that it wasn't legend - it was true! She told them how fifty years earlier, when the summer camp was started, there was a crazy cook who ran the kitchen and mess hall.

    That first summer, the crazy cook chopped up some of the children and baked them into chicken pies. The counselor then went on to tell them that these three scary creepy children that the other campers had seen were the ghosts of the kids who had been chopped up and baked into the other campers' dinners.

    The girls who had gathered around flipped out - they were convinced that the scary story was totally and completely true. It was one of those scary true stories you hear about. How else would the girl have seen three kids, and the counselor's story was so perfectly perfect. The girls told everyone they could, and soon the whole camp was buzzing about the scary nights they had ahead of them.

    So, that night, when they went to bed, they all kept their flashlights on and the covers pulled up over their heads, and then waited for their counselors to call it a night and go to sleep. At midnight they all pulled their covers down and there, suddenly, they saw three creepy children in the middle of the floor, holding hands, swaying, and chanting weird ritualistic chants.

    The girls started freaking out again. They jumped out of their bunk beds - some of them fell - and a counselor woke up, so mad, and came in and started screaming at all of them. She shined her flashlight on the three figures by the door and it was three boys from the boys camp, dressed up and pranking them because they had heard about the story going around. Even still, it scared the wits out of the girls, one of the scariest nights of their lives.

    The boys were suspended from summer camp for a week! And, even though it all turned out to be nothing, still, it was hard to eat the chicken pies after that...
