The sound of your friends' taunting laughter rings in harmony with the ghostly rustle of the thicket. Contrarily, you stay silent and swallow the lump of vomit that resides inside your throat.
Thoughts flash through your head as you approach the large wrap-around porch of the deserted manor that lays before you. What if you are destined to the same fate as the torn, faded curtains tied tightly on the wall?
As you and your friends enter the house, the hardwood floor groans beneath your feet. Then, as you turn around to suggest that you exit, you hear a door slam and a key turn.
Welcome to the Mystery Cabin!
Yeah, you're stuck here.

⚡ A Brief Explanation ⚡
What is this?
This is a cabin for Scratch Writing Camp, a virtual camp on Scratch.
Do I have to write in the Mystery genre?
Nope! Mystery is simply the name of this cabin. It doesn't restrict you in any way, and you are free to write what you want.
⚡ Points ⚡
SWC is not only a camp to improve your writing, but also a competition! At the end of July, the cabin with the most points at the end will win. You can earn points by adding to our cabin word count For example, you could comment "Today I wrote 6969 words from my Shrek fanfic!"
Another way to earn points is by completing a daily or weekly activity in the main cabin (link above).
⚡ Feedback from Leaders⚡
In the Mystery Cabin, we would love to campers display real improvement in the quality of their writing at the end of camp. To achieve this goal, we will allow campers to submit one writing piece under 2,000 words each week. One leader will review and critique your work in a few days after your submission.

⚡ MBA & Bolts⚡
In our cabin we will have a Mystery Bonus Activity (MBA) each week that helps us get to know each other or help polish your current writing.

We will have our own reward system using ⚡ to track camper activity. This is exclusive to the Mystery Cabin, so it won't affect our cabin ranks. However, the 3 campers with the highest number of bolts will receive a special prize and shout-out in our re-cap.
