When her mother makes her leave Manhattan to attend a summer camp in Pennsylvania, eleven-year-old Natalie tries to overcome her aversion to nature and makes new friends while, at the same time, keeping the identity of her famous father a secret.
Eleven-year-old Jenna, contending with the separation of her parents and the unwanted presence of her twin brother and older sister at Camp Lakeview, is determined to make a name for herself by pulling the ultimate prank.
During the last weeks of summer camp, eleven-year-old Alex Kim has trouble hiding a secret from the other girls in bunk 3C while also trying to meet the high standards she sets for herself in sports, relationships, and other activities.
Having left summer camp to return home, the girls from bunk 3C use a blog to keep one another informed of their struggles adjusting to sixth grade at their respective schools and to new situations at home.
Thirteen-year-old Jenna is excited to have all of her friends visit her lake house for the Memorial Day holiday and local fair until she finds out her twin brother has invited David, her old crush and Sarah's current boyfriend.
Gaby wants to get along with the other girls in her bunkhouse, but she craves attention so much that she lies and says her brother is on a new reality television show, and then when he wins the grand prize of a trip for his entire family, she thinks her only hope is to run away from camp.
The girls of Camp Lakeview keep in touch through their blog as Brynn transfers to Candace's school, where intelligence brings popularity and acting talent does not, and Gaby, Val, and Chelsea do volunteer work together, while all of them struggle with setting priorities and getting along.
Brinn is thrilled to work as an extra on a motion picture, but friendships are strained as Sara joins her but spends all of her time with a boy, Natalie goes into hiding after getting braces on her teeth, and Avery faces troubles at home.
Forced to attend the annual Walla Walla camp reunion, unsociable Peter finds himself unexpectedly falling for Natalie and tries to impress her by joining the Powder Puff football matchup against Camp Talamini, where the boys dress as cheerleaders and the girls battle it out on the football field.
