Webcomic: Camp Weedonwantcha
Camp Weedonwantcha is a story by artist Katie Rice about children left to fend for themselves at a nature camp that has no adults, with their only contact with the outside world being supplies occasionally dropped in by parachute. The comic is centered on twelve-year-old Malachi, the newest resident of the camp, and the people he meets and gets to know there.

Katie Rice is the winner of the 2013 Season of the Reality TV Game Show Strip Search; Camp Weedonwantcha is the comic she created for that competition.

Camp Weedonwantcha contains examples of:

  • Adults Are Completely Absent: The camp is completely devoid of adults, leaving the kids to fend for themselves.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Seemingly with Brian towards Seventeen, though he has control over it.
  • Black Comedy
  • Creepy Twins: The twins, who object to being called weird.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Seventeen is this all over.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: The entire cast is barefoot, save for Malachi and Colin.
  • Easter Egg: Every single comic after "Special Delivery #2" has one of the feral cats in it. Sometimes it's obvious, sometimes it's hidden.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: The twins.
  • Gentle Giant: Brian
  • Horrible Camping Trip: The camp itself is okay, its the lack of parental supervision and inconsistent supply drops that makes it horrible.
  • Intoxication Ensues/Mushroom Samba: Malachi after being treated for tummy ache by Seventeen.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Not quite at Lord of the Flies levels yet, but we've already seen the kids start to act like dicks to eachother. One strip even implies that murders have occured.
  • Mushroom Samba: The reaction Malachi has to 17's "medical herbs".
  • Mood Whiplash: One story goes from stealing a whistle to something... not as funny.
  • Parental Abandonment: There is no real clues to just why the kids are at the camp yet, but one of the most common guesses is that its a camp for parents to simply leave unwanted children at.
  • Small Secluded World
  • Summer Campy
  • Unreliable Narrator: Colin, the oldest kid in the camp and self proclaimed camp counsellor keeps order with the whistle his dad, the school gym coach, gave him when he dropped him off at camp, to keep order like he would have done. Colin is in denial. His father actually abandoned him there for not living up to his demands that Colin be an athlete like him, instead being interested in magic and illusions. Colin only got the whistle because he was clinging to it when his father physically pushed him out of the car and left him
  • Wild Child: The Proto Kid, the first camper to come to the camp, went insane, and is now living as a feral child out in the woods.
  • World Limited to the Plot
