Creepy Hermit Encounter

        I live in Burlington, Ontario, a nice lakeside city near Toronto. This story happened to me during a school trip when I was in eighth grade. At my elementary school, which by the way was Catholic, everyone in grade eight would get to go on two trips as part of their final year at the school. One trip took place in the fall and was usually a religious camping trip that took place about forty minutes out of the city. By religious, I mean everyone had to participate in group activities that revolved around being a good Christian and teamwork, etc. This, of course, completely sucked as this “camp” was little more than a religion class stretched to three days.

        The second school trip always took place in the spring and was usually a trip to Ottawa for the weekend where we could explore the city and visit museums. For some reason, it was decided my year would instead take another camping trip (at a camp I will not name) about four hours away at Algonquin Provincial Park. The camp was on one of the many lakes in the park and was set up like your pretty typical summer camp. Cabins were spread out near the lake and partially in the forest and there were bathrooms and a mess hall in separate buildings. As you would guess, boys and girls shared separate cabins. The girls’ cabins were built on supports above the ground and were the ones closer to the lake. Our cabins were almost in the forest and built on the ground along a gravel road. I shared a larger cabin with about four other guys. Although our cabin was the largest, it was probably the least comforting. While the other cabins had actual windows and doors that would fully close and lock, our cabin looked like it was built from balsa wood, only had thin bug-screens for windows and a door that wouldn’t close. I should also point out that I had no experience with actual camping, as my family hates it, so this was a pretty bad first impression.

Bummer camp

This experience happened to me one year ago, I am 13 now. My neighbor who is a good friend of mine named Lily, went with me to a summer camp. We helped out as counselors to younger kids. The camp was on an island, isolated from the entire world, or so it seemed.

It was mid June when we left for the island to go to camp. When we arrived, everything seemed normal except the fact Lily and l’s cabin was deeper in the woods than everyone else’s. You had to travel down a long gravel path to get there. Now, I was a really curious 12 year old, so I asked my friend if she wanted to go walk in the woods when it got dark out.

Sheriffs camp

Okay, so I would normally go to sheriffs camp in the summer time. It’s basically a summer camp where you get to experience cool simulations of real situations tornados, fires ect. The camp is split up between girls and boys, boys sleep in tents near the lake while girls sleep in cabins in the woods. After we got there they did the “welcome to camp here are the rules” speech, we the proceeded to split up into out cabins and Gather our things. We walked up to our cabins and got settled in. We then walked down to the fire pit, the girls who were in charge of our cabin decided to tell us a ghost story, about a girl named Sally who drowned in the lake and she walks the camp every night blah blah blah blah blah, I was 11 at the time and I knew they were just trying to scare the littler kids so I pretty much blew her off and happily ate my smore. I had made three friends, Kate, Maddy, and Nicky. They had also blew off the stupid story. Later that night we were in our cabin windows open everybody was asleep and suddenly Mal just started going ballistic, like she was freaking out, one of the older girls calmed her down and we finally understood what she was saying to us. She still crying said “there was a girl in the window.” I’m at this point thinking she’s insane. I ignore it and go back to sleep. The next morning we get up and Mal has all of her stuff packed, she was leaving that day, me and Nicky asked her why thinking it was about the girl thing, she lifts up her shirt and she has scratch marks all the way down her back. Me and Nicky are like looking at each other like “what the even?” Mal leaves that day. Later that night we were talking about it and Kate goes, “yeah that’s a little odd. Last night I thought I saw rainbow boots walking outside the cabin window” me and Nicky things she’s going insane so we play it off. And didn’t talk about it again. Nicky ended up leaving camp early because of a family thing. Leaving me with Kate. The rest of the week goes off with out incident. Something I forgot to mention, I had a dog at the time who was going to have puppies at like any moment this will tie into the story later. Anyway so on the bus ride home I had to sit with Kate, she was really talkative, and then suddenly she just kind of stop and started staring out the window. I just ignored it because I wanted her to shut up anyway. She suddenly says, in a really deep voice, like too deep for an eleven year old “something bad is going to happen” I think she’s insane so I switch seats. I got home and in about a day later my dog has all 12 of her puppies, and then they all die. Like they were doing fine. And then they just all died. The next day my dog died.

the monster of camp road

I will not tell my real name but maybe but I am almost 12 when this happened I was 9. I was home alone and the time was about 2:00 when I woke up from a small deep sleep in my cabin. I forgot to say that I was with my friend lets call him luke at summer camp. On the second night, it was going great but when it 2:00 am we could hear something above us like deep breathing or thumps. The next night we had to go and get our teeth brushed. When I was coming back to the cabin the counselor said to go and turn the lights out of the bathroom. So this is when it happened I was there but then it got cold it was hard to breathe, then I saw it about 8 feet tall and towered over me it was gray and thin and the bones or whatever it was out of the body. Then about 30 min later after watching it face to face, it ran. Nothing happened that night but at the end of the week I went to the bathroom And the lights were broken and the door was gone…

Forest Howl

Me and my family went to our family cabin for Spring Break, this year. This cabin is on top of a hill in Indiana, with lots of forest around. I’ve always been fascinated by the creatures I find, like snails and bats flying above head. This year, it was too cold at the time for most of these, so we usually stayed at the cabin part, no forest exploring. On our first night there, we lit a fire to enjoy the time before the incoming rain the next few days. Since we were bored and had no s’mores to cook, we decided to tell some scary campfire stories, like any person would. So, my mom was reading one off her phone. and I decided to close my eyes and relax with the heat of the fire. It was comfortable, your legs the perfect temperature, a story to fall asleep to, and the background noise of a crackling fire. I got deep into this state of relaxation, when I heard a loud howl of a coyote, dog, or something else. I snapped up, startled by the noise. My mom continued to read, and the niece next to me simply listening. No one seemed to of heard this howl. It could of been my imagination, but it was so real, so loud. Plus, I don’t remember ever hearing a howl like it. It was such an odd moment, and my mom asked if I heard something. They clearly didn’t hear it. This fact really scared me, as it sounded so real, it could of been in the forest. Since no one knew about the sound, I decided to shrug it off and not care. I did the same relaxation thing, and my dog started to growl. Now this was really freaky. We all scanned our flashlights in the direction they were growling, but saw nothing. Since all this was so odd, I stopped closing my eyes and relaxing. From there, everything was normal. This was horrifying to me, since I seemed to be the only one who heard this howl. My dog growled while I relaxed, this could be the same thing, but I didn’t hear this time. So, I want to leave this up to anyone reading, what could of happened? Just a warning though, I wouldn’t relax as I did, in case this happens to you.
