Stanley is going to camp Green Lake but there is no lake. Camp Green Lake is a camp where bad boys go to fix themselves, they dig holes which build character they say, or the warden is looking for something.
Stanley gets assigned to D tent and meets his fellow bunk mates. He then gets ready to dig his first hole the next day.
Elya Yelnats was Stanley's great great grandfather who started the curse. He made a promise to Madame Zeroni in which he didn't keep so basically he was cursed which followed his family line.
Stanley dug his hole as blisters began to form on his fleshy hands. Stanley kept digging and was the last one to finish his hole.
It was about noon and the water truck came to refill everyone's water canteens. Stanley stood behind Zero and got their canteens refilled.
When Stanley finally finished his hole he spat in his hole, and walked back to camp turning down Mr. Pendenski's offer to ride with him in the truck back to the camp.
