Sloyer’s description of the book:

Bat in the Bunk  is the  second book in the Summer Camp Stories series.  It’s a fun, memorable, and educational adventure that promotes great values, while subtly  introducing children to the summer camp experience.  The story is based on a true story that happened at Camp Massad in Tannersville, PA nearly 42 years ago (wow – I’m getting old).  I have been telling the story to children for decades – always to smiles and looks of wonderment, and usually to the question – Did that really happen??? And the answer of course is YES!!!
