But Mack starts to suspect he’s being played, as one by one, his favorite camp activities all get closed for repairs. Meanwhile, Winston pits boys against girls in a twisted attempt to win. To undermine Winton’s hypercompetitive scheme once again, Mack creates a plan of his own-but it means he needs to secretly sabotage both the boys’ and girls’ teams. Will Mack match wits with Wintston and save the camp from the diabolical director’s clutches once and for all? Or will Mack’s own mischief be exposed-and lose him his summer and his friends?
