I Want to Go Home is the story of a boyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s various escape attempts from Camp Algonkian. Rudy Miller is sent to Camp Algonkian by his parents on the misguided advice of the school guidance counselor. There, Rudy is determined to become his own man, by making snide comments of the camp founderÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s bow-legs, playing chess instead of the scheduled activities, or making a salatÃƒÂ© for his counselor. At night, instead of singing campfire songs, Rudy spends his time planning various escapes from the camp. When a badly planned wager leaves Rudy in charge of the camp for a day, the campers will either kill him or call him a hero.
