X-lax Surprise Camp Prank

On my grade 8 end year trip we went camping. The girls wanted to get the boys good. So what we did was made brownies and put x-lax in them. The boys were eating them all the way to the camp. When we arrived at the camp, we hid all the toilet paper and plastic wrapped the toilet seats! It was a weekend to remember.

Revenge Camp Pranks

We were staying in a college dorm for camp and we were already there for two days but couldn’t sleep because the neighbors would pound on the walls all night so we got some fox pee and deer pee and went in there room and put some pee in their cologne and shampoo. We then came back that night and locked them in their room then sprayed pee under there door so they had a rude awakening in the morning. The next day we pooped in a trash can and set it outside so it baked, then hid it in their room.

Another prank we did to someone else was to put catfish bait in a glass of water soaking in the sun for a day. We then were able to spray the catfish juice on someone’s radiator so when they would turn the heat or air conditioning on they would smell the sweat stench of catfish.

Perfect Camp Prank:

One day in summer camp, I made fun of some girls who were standing nearby. That night, I had a bad feeling something bad was going to happen but I went to sleep anyway. In the morning I was covered in makeup, nail polish, lipstick, etc… I never went to that camp again!

Revenge Camping Prank

Okay- here’s one for revenge. It would be best to do this somewhere where the person you are pranking cannot get another pair of clothes-like camping for example. What you do is get a container of Bleach and put a bunch of hair in it and leave it there over night. Next morning, drain it and chop the hair real fine… and it becomes itching powder!!! Put it all over the other person’s clothes!!!! hah!!!!!

Another Revenge Prank – Trash the Cabin

This is a revenge prank for when you’re at summer camp! Last summer at camp my friends and I need to come up with a great revenge prank so we thought of one and put it into action!! You see in this camp, you had to keep your cabin clean or you wouldn’t be allowed to join in the activities……so since the next day we were going canoeing (everyone’s favorite) we decided to totally trash this brat girl and her friend’s cabin!! Since the doors are never locked we snuck in a totally destroyed it (we also added honey and silly string) the next day they weren’t allowed to join in any of the activities!!

Funny Camping Prank

This is for all the camping people out there. Okay if ya’ll go camping with alot of friends this practical joke is totally for you!! Get some bright red lipstick and put it on somebody’s lips. Then put lip marks all over someone else’s face that is of the same sex and sort of smear some lipstick on their lips. Take photos if you can!

2 Camp Pranks

I was a camp counselor and had many pranks played on me along with playing a few myself. As a rookie counselor of 24 years old on my first day of camp I made the mistake of wearing white shorts, white Bobby-socks, white canvas sneakers, and an expensive summer sweater. Big mistake!!! I discovered a bucket of sticky black tar at the bottom of the steps of my cabin.

That is, I discovered the bucket of tar AFTER it became attached to my foot!!! By the end of the day, I had tar all over myself, and my outfit was ruined!!! I found out that another counselor, about 20 years my elder, played the prank on me. She was not laughing so loudly after I put DRANO in her laundry detergent.

Post-It Note Camp Prank

One week at camp this past summer, I and my friends decided to go down in CCA history at Forest Home. CCA’s are volunteers that help out with the family camp kids. Anyways, we are treated like dirt by all of the staff, even the most of our counselors. So we decided to post-it note one of our counselor’s car (one that we actually liked). We covered the entire car in yellow post-its, and it was very time consuming for our counselor to remove them the next morning. HAHA!

Camp Pranks by Mischievous Girls

We went to a camp that had one section for boys and the other for girls … well one night we stayed up real late and snuck over to the guys bunk and we decorated them as they slept with lipstick, toothpaste, markers and then we put Vaseline between their toes to make them subconsciously wriggle all night.

We also rigged booby traps by putting webs over each bunk and when they hit the strings, down would come talcum powder, mud, pancake syrup, or other stuff which we put in big paper cups.

Summer Camp Mess Hall Practical Joke

While at a summer camp one time some other girls played this prank at the mess hall over night. They turned all the tables upside down and removed all the chairs, and put the stacked in all of their dorms. They then hid all of the silverware as well. When we walked in to eat breakfast in the morning we had to sit and eat on the floor with our fingers! The worst part is we were having cereal.

Girl Scout Camp Prank

At Girl Scout camp we waded through the lake in the middle of the night to the YMCA camp, and hoisted a huge pear of Wal-Mart pants up the flag pole that said girl scouts rule!

Cabin Lockdown Camp Prank

My brother and his friends did this to me and my sister. This only works if you have a cabin…. me and my sis went to bed and in the middle of the night, she woke me up to go with her down to the outhouse because she was scared to go all by herself. I didn’t want to go though, so when she finally mustered up the courage to go, she tried to open the door but couldn’t. I tried also but it turns out that our cabin door was tied shut!

My brother and his friends tied a rope around our doorknob and around a post on the cabin porch. She really had to pee! The cabin had windows, but good luck trying to get a girl to squat out one. It was sooooooo funny…. and we still have to get back at them for revenge.

Is that for breakfast?

Put canoes in your camp kitchen if you can!

Try this prank if your have a slumber party for boys or girls you have to do it when you camping unless you want mud in you house (te he)and their has to be a leased 3 or more people when your freinds are all their say somting like “Don’t fall asleep first you’ll regret it!” Then when the 1 person falls asleep gather your freinds and cover their faces with mud or give them a “makeover” and when they get up they’ll regret falling asleep first and they’ll try and get you back!

So we went to camp as the “Turkey Crew Sevvys” and we sure did pull a few good ones! We put lemonade flavored Kool aid in the shower on the tile so when the water came on, yellow came out of their ‘stall’ Everyone thought they peed! Then we had brought some ‘fart spray’ and ‘liquid A$$’ spray. Boy, everyone gagged! Also remember the rubber cockroaches, fart bomb bags, ‘toilet monster’, and assorted pranks we randomly pulled, such as Vaseline door knob, or the classic ‘Post-It Car’
Try these out, you’ll get a laugh!
I got my supplies at prankplace.com for about $35.00

I’m going to camp in ten days and want to play A PRANK ON MY enemies but we are in different tents.


Ally September 1, 2011 at 11:58 pm

Put breadcrumbs or birdseed around and on their tent at night. At
5 am, they will be waken up by all the birds flapping and making
noises by their tent. This works best if the tents are sorta far apart
so only they will be waken up. 😉

Go to the dollar tree and get cheap barbie dolls… rip of the head (they fall off anyway:) ) and make them goth and really weird/creepy…throw them all around the boys cabin and in their beds! ITs perfect!!!

I went to a camp with all my classmates for 6th grade. We’re going to that camp again for 7th grade. They separate the boys in one group of cabins and the girls in another group. The girls and our math teacher are trying to get back at a prank the boys and our science teacher did on us. Got any ideas for revenge? ( without destroying the cabins or other personal property).


Jackie Pol September 22, 2011 at 5:23 am

A really great prank is to take little Dixie cups (for like brushing your teeth and stuff) and place them all over the floor of someone’s cabin. Then fill them with water. When your victim comes back or wakes up (whenever you decide to pull the prank), they won’t be able to walk anywhere because of all the cups. To get through they will have to pick up each one or knock them all over and get their floor soaking wet. Great one!:)
