Hail, Hail Camp Timberwood. The characters are so vivid! I never had the pleasure of going to camp when I was young, but reading this book made me feel as though I were there!

Hail, Hail Camp Timberwood.

138 pages ; 18 cm. Relates the experiences of 13-year-old Melanie as she tries to cope with the traumas and pleasures of her first year at summer camp. A Bantam Starfire book.

Hail, Hail Camp Timberwood - Ellen Conford. Hail, Hail Camp Timberwood. When Mel meets Steve, a Senior Boy at Camp, she goes through the ups and downs of being in love for the first time - and has to face competition from one of her cabinmates, who is out to steal Mel's boyfriend and ruin her summer! 1981 Young Reader's Choice Award - Children's (Winner).

Conford puts in the usual mess-hall gripes, parents' visiting day, and final awards night (with ""most improved"" badges for Dougie and Mel), but omits the humor and mischief that leaven other, similar camp stories. One more for the campsick, with a little boy-interest to moon over. In her first summer at camp and her first time away from her parents, 13-year-old Melanie gets over her fear of riding and of putting her face under water; she makes a friend (Sarah) and an enemy (Ricky) among the eight girls in her bunk; she acquires a boyfriend (Steve) who holds her hand often and kisses her goodnight after the.

I am 31 years old. I remember this book from when I was in my early teens. I wanted to purchase a book for my niece and immediately remembered this classic!
Once I gave this book to my niece, it became a favorite of hers, as well! The characters are so vivid! I never had the pleasure of going to camp when I was young, but reading this book made me feel as though I were there!
Friendship, young love, standing up for yourself, growing up...all these topics are wrapped nicely in an unforgettable novel!
Trust me, if I remember this book 17 years later, it must be something special!
I give this book my highest recommendation! 5 stars out of 5!

Loved this book in Elementary School when I found it in the School library. Read it over and over and never forgot about it. Years later decided to search for a copy online and found one on Amazon. Got the book and read it again in one sitting. Still love it and love owning it after all these years. Very nostalgic.

Was one of my favorite books as a tween/teen (back when we were called "preteen"). :)
Thrilled to have found it for my 11 year old daughter. She loves it too!

The first time I read this book I was in 5th grade and I filled out the check-out card checking it out from the library over and over again. A few years ago, I was browsing through amazon.com and stumbled across it and so I bought it. A while later, my neice (who was probably 10 or 11 at the time) was over visiting me and saw it and borrowed it from me to read and she loved it. She wanted my copy, but instead I bought her another copy and gave it to her for her birthday ... like her aunt it has become her favorite book!

Just as expected. Exactly as described.

My favorite book when I was in grade school in 1987. I read it several times and I was not a kid who liked to read.

Around 1978 I found this book. I purchased it brand new from the book store shelf. Over the next 9 years, I read it again and again and again. By the time I headed off to college the book was almost in tatters. It went with me to college but I only managed to read it once or twice by sandwiching it in between text books and classes. After I was married, I packed it away.

Fast forward to May 2006. Ok, call me overly dramatic. I was scheduled for surgery and I had time to read one book before going under the knife. I had to chose what might be the last book I'd ever read. I chose Hail, Hail Camp Timberwood. I couldn't find my own copy so I turned to the local library system. They had one copy about 45 miles away. I put in my request.

It was almost 30 years after the first time I read the book. Here I was, almost 37 and worried that this "young adult" book would dissapoint me. Had I made the wrong selection? Would I be bored? Would it still be my favorite book?

I made the right selection. I wasn't bored. It was still my favorite book - even decades later. As I turned each page, I remembered every thing in the book. As I read each word, it came spilling out of my memory as though I had just read the book the day before.

As you can surmise, I survived the surgery (or at least I am in the process of recovering). So, technically, this wasn't my "one last read". However, I think I'll find my copy and make sure I have it around just incase the situtation ever arises again.

Ellen: If you read these reviews, thank you for an incredible book!
I read this book when I was 12 and still, 16 years later, I love it. This is a preteen book about a very sheltered 13 yr.old girl named Melanie who is forced to go away to camp for about 6 weeks.( Her Aunt Katherine,a pyschologist, strongly suggest that to her folks and they finally agree that Mel needs to grow up a bit and learn new things and meet new people.) At first Mel is quite homesick and scared of all the new activities, but she starts to really enjoy herself and grow up.She makes new friends and learns assertiveness,especially when it comes to dealing with a bully.
I could definitely relate to shy, sheltered, insecure Melanie when I was a preteen, which is partly why I adored it so much. I did attend summer camp when I was 10, 12 and 13. When I was 12 and 13 I had a mad crush on 1 hot blonde guy at the camp. His good looks and cool demeanor reminded me of "Steve", Melanie's boyfriend in the book.
Even though this book was written in the 70's, it is still relevant for today's preteens. I hope this book comes back in print some day and I hope no changes are made. I think this would also make a great made for tv movie.
Parents, do your preteens(especially girls) a favor and buy them this book. I can't see how any kid couldn't relate to the story.
