When Skye's stepmother "monster-in-law" sends her to a summer camp, Skye is dead set on not fitting in or enjoying her camping experience. She accidentally boards the wrong bus and ends up at Camp Midnight, where everyone is a full-fledged monster. At first, Skye hides her true identity as a human, but then she realizes that being human has its ups as well as its downs. For the final contest, she announces her true form to the camp and asks Mia, her human best friend to join her in competing in the games. Skye's acceptance and friendship give Mia the confidence she needs, and Skye returns home with the hope of returning to Camp Midnight next year.
