Holes Chapter 2 Summary

  • Now we get the real story: turns out Camp Green Lake is "a camp for bad boys."
  • In fact, the boys at the camp have to dig a hole every day, in the hopes that it will make them good boys. Hmm.
  • Stanley Yelnats, for one, chose to go to Camp Green Lake. After all, the alternative was going to jail; plus, he's poor and has never been to camp before. Sounds like a good choice, then.
