Summary
In Arthur Goes To Camp, Arthur has had enough of Camp Meadowbrook's rotten food, poison ivy and barking counselors, but picks the wrong night for an easy escape. In Arthur's Family Vacation, Arthur's vacation with his family starts out as a real disaster, but soon turn into a lot more fun than he could have imagined

Review
Arthur is off to Camp Meadowcroak, like it or not, with Buster and Francine and Muffy--and from the moment he hears Francine chortle about bats and snakes in the boys' tent, he's sure "It's going to be just like school: the girls against the boys." Worse, the girls have a solicitous counselor, while the boys draw gruff, tough Rocky--whose disgust when the girls outperform the boys only deepens their shame. As for Arthur, he didn't want to go to camp, and--as he writes in dally, imploring letters--he doesn't want to stay. Then, "really weird things" start to happen: the doing of rival Camp Horsewater. But the annual Meadowcroak-Horsewater Scavenger Hunt turns the trick: boys-and-girls-together get revenge; and runaway Arthur accidentally emerges a hero. The last letter home reads: "Camp is great. I want to come back next year." Not the snappiest in the series but passable-plus: authentic summer-camp travails and a made-to-order setting for faint-hearted Arthur. (Kirkus Reviews, April 1, 1982)
