Stanley Yelnats had never been to camp before. He was given the choice of Camp Green Lake or jail, but he was not guilty of the crime for which he was sentenced. When Stanley (Caveman) got to camp, it was hard to make friends at first. He was always the last one finished digging his hole. At camp he met a kid named Zero. They became friends, and Stanley even helped Zero learn how to read. Stanley faced many challenges at Camp Green Lake, especially after running away. Stanley’s overall experience at camp made him a stronger more hopeful person in the end.
Zero is a small, quiet kid at Camp Green Lake. He hardly ever talks or answers questions, but he is one of the fastest diggers. He lost his mom, and he doesn’t know how to read or write. When he meets Stanley, he asks Stanley if he would teach him to read in exchange for help with digging his hole. Stanley accepts, and they become very good friends. But things change when Zero runs away from camp. With help from Stanley, Zero survives, and he is in for an adventure.
The Warden is the head of Camp Green Lake. Every camper there is scared of her. She keeps cameras everywhere around camp. She says that the campers are just digging to build character, but really she’s looking for Kissin’ Kate Barlow’s treasure. Her violent personality gets her everything. She’s dangerous, especially after just painting her nails!
Mr. Sir is another head worker at Camp Green Lake. He is very hardon the boys and doesn’t put up with any messingaround. He is always seen with his bag of sunflower seeds in place of cigarettes. Mr. Sir is not going to waste his time on the campers, and he makes sure they know that, “This isn’t Girl Scouts.”
Mr. Pendanski is the camper’s counselor. He respects the campers. He tries to help make their life better. The campers call him Mom.
Although he was small, X-Ray knows how to make his mark at Camp Green Lake. When Stanley arrived, he immediately took advantage of him. He is pretty much the leader of the campers in his tent.
