Is Sami ready for summer camp . . . and is camp ready for her?

Samantha "Sami" Bloom is going to sleepaway camp for the first time. Sami's big sister, Maya, has always loved her summers at Camp Cedar Lake, but Sami isn't so sure she'll feel the same way. She's nervous about being away from home, trying new food, and doing the super-scary ropes course. Worst of all, Sami's annoying cousin, Daniel, is attending the same camp. It's sure to be a disaster!

But Sami never counted on delicious Shabbat dinners, funny new friends, and more than a handful of surprises -- one including Daniel himself.

No matter what, this will be a summer to remember!
