Slice: Recalling A Close Call At Camp

SR buddy Paul Turner of The Slice blog posts: "When I was a kid in Burlington, Vermont, I spent a week one summer at a hockey camp in nearby Lake Placid, N.Y. Boys from all over New England attended this sports-focused session. We stayed at a place called the Northwood School. On-ice training took place at a rink that belonged to that prep school. The Lake Placid facility that would become a celebrated venue because of the 1980 Winter Olympics did not exist at the time. I have a number of memories from that week. But one still makes me wince. One day when we were in our dorm rooms exchanging bon mots between hockey practices, an older boy named Dennis got an idea. Wouldn't it be a riot to fill a plastic cup with urine, place it atop a room door and then summon an unpopular camper?" More here.

Question: Did you attend summer camp as a kid? Any close calls that you might want to share with us?
