Camp Running Bear
Former campers turned cabin counselors make summer camp fun for the boys of Camp Running Bear.
July 17, 2006
From the introduction, the five boys cabins at Camp Running Bear are in a row facing Lake Hiawatha and are numbered 1-5 left-to-right as seen from the lake. By clue 1, Mohawk Cabin is directly between the cabins where Bo and college student Moose are counselors; while by clue 5, Oneida is between the cabins with Dan and Trout as counselors. So, either Mohawk and Oneida are next to each other among the three inside cabins, or Mohawk and Oneida are the cabins flanking the middle one. If Mohawk and Oneida Cabins were next to each other, by clue 5, either Dan or Trout would lead the Mohawk campers. If Dan were the counselor assigned to Mohawk, by clue 5, Trout would head the cabin on the other side of Oneida from Mohawk. By clue 1, then, Oneida's counselor would be either Bo or Moose. If he were Bo, Moose would be in charge of the cabin on the other side of Mohawk from Oneida. Since Bo isn't counselor Rivers (clue 4), by clue 8, Alex would be Moose, Dan would be Rivers, and Iroquois would be the outside cabin next to Alex's. Chris would be Trout and would lead Seneca Cabin (3), with Alex then counselor in Huron. However, there is no way for Eddie's cabin to be next to Seneca (2), so this arrangement fails. Oneida's counselor thus wouldn't be Bo. If Oneida's counselor were Moose, Bo would be in charge of the cabin on the other side of Mohawk from Oneida. By clue 8, Alex would be Moose, with Dan Rivers and Iroquois Cabin Trout's responsibility. By clue 2, since Eddie isn't Trout, Bo's cabin would be Seneca, with Eddie's cabin Huron then on the outside of the row next to Seneca. However, Chris's cabin would then have to be next to Alex's--no (3). So, Oneida's counselor couldn't be Moose; and Dan then couldn't be assigned to Mohawk if it were next to Oneida. Trying Mohawk and Oneida adjacent and Trout as counselor in Mohawk, Dan would be in charge of the cabin on the other side of Oneida from Mohawk. By clue 1, either Bo or Moose would be the counselor for Oneida Cabin. If Bo were, Moose would lead the boys in the cabin on the other side of Mohawk from Oneida. However, since Bo isn't Rivers (4), there is no way for clue 8 to work. If Moose were the Oneida counselor, Bo would be in charge of the cabin on the other side of Oneida from Mohawk. Again, however, there is no way for clue 8 to work. Therefore, Mohawk and Oneida Cabins are not adjacent and must be separated by the middle cabin. By clue 5, the counselor in the middle cabin is Dan or Trout. If he were Dan, Trout would lead the cabin outside Oneida. Then by clue 1, Dan would be Moose; and Bo would have charge of the cabin outside Mohawk. However, since Bo isn't Rivers (4), there is no way for clue 8 to work. So, in clue 5, the counselor in the middle cabin is Trout, with Dan counselor in the outside cabin adjacent to Oneida. By clue 1, Trout is Bo; and Moose leads the outside cabin next to Mohawk. By clue 8, Oneida's counselor is Alex; Dan is Rivers, and Bo Trout is counselor in Iroquois. By clue 2, Eddie is Mohawk's counselor and Moose Seneca's. By elimination Dan leads Huron Cabin; and Chris is Moose. By clue 6, Eddie is Woods and Alex Lodge. Finally, by clue 7, Alex Lodge's Oneida Cabin is #2, with Huron #1, Iroquois #3, Mohawk #4, and Seneca #5. In sum, the five boys cabins at Camp Running Bear are lined up along Lake Hiawatha as follows:

  • #1 -- Huron, Dan Rivers
  • #2 -- Oneida, Alex Lodge
  • #3 -- Iroquois, Bo Trout
  • #4 -- Mohawk, Eddie Woods
  • #5 -- Seneca, Chris Moose
