My summer camp had all kinds of things: canoeing, swimming, archery, ping-pong, basketball, and the hook game. The hook game is a game where a metal ring is tied to a string that's fixed to the ceiling, and you try to swing the ring onto a hook. This game is found in many dive bars in Wisconsin, and also at my summer camp. Over the course of five summers, I became a Grand Master of the hook game. Once in awhile I'll find one in a bar, and since it's a strange skill no one but my summer camp friends know I have, I'm able to surprise people. I have a friend who can do the same thing, but with him it's playing the piano with incredible skill. Him and I went to very different summer camps.
