COVER UP CALENDAR (any gender-- late teens to late life)
Don't panic. World was built in seven days, right? We can rebuild this little summer camp by Sunday.
Let's break it down.
TODAY: After breakfast, I run to the hospital. I confirm that they don't have Janet in ICU.
TUESDAY: We call the parents and report exactly what I saw at the hospital: Janet's condition is NOT SERIOUS- after all she's not in ICU, right?
WEDNESDAY: Camp-wide mutant bug hunt festival day! Whichever cabin can find five or more, they get ice cream that night.
THURSDAY: We take the bugs to Boston and get them analyzed. Send Jacob, he's blabbing to the other counselors about how bad this is so let's get him out of here.
FRIDAY: Makeover day! Get makeup supplies from the theatre department... the cabin that can successfully make over their bites-- they get ice cream. If all the other cabins do what they do? THEY GET ICE CREAM!
SATURDAY: Jacob comes back with the results from the lab-- nothing! No results, they're still working on it! Of course they are. Jacob then gets to shut up and we get to tell the parents on...
SUNDAY: "Welcome back. What a great month its been."
