Craig Battle

Camp Average tells the story of a group of 11-year-old boys sharing Cabin 10 at a six-week summer sports camp for boys. The actual name of the place is Camp Avalon, but the kids call it Camp Average, because they never win at any sport. And that's the way they like it. But this summer, Winston, the new camp director doesn't like losing, and he's not about to start. Led by the main protagonist, Mack, and his best friend Andre, the boys in Cabin 10 have a different plan. They're going to lose like they've never lost before, at every sport, but especially at the baseball tournament with the three nearby powerhouse camps. That way, they'll get their summer back! -- From statement provided by publisher.
