Maxine can't wait to start at Camp Gold International! But the minute she arrives, things start going wrong - her training isn't going well and, worse, someone has been vandalising the plush building. Now fingers are pointing at Maxine and her friends. When it happens a second time, the principal makes it clear that if the vandals don't stop, the camp may have to be closed. For Maxine, Camp Gold means everything. Can she solve the mystery and focus on training ...and win?
