RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.


The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Fucking school camp

I am now in year 9 and we have about a month or so (no joke) worth of camps. I fucking hate camp and my parents love it as they are more then happy to send me to them regardless of whether I am happy or not to go. I just am sick of having to spend 5 days of doing shitty activities that I don't feel comfortable doing and staying with people I don't like (not all but some people piss me off)

Anyway Is it even fucking legal to send me against my will to 5 day camps that my school picks out? School is as we already know a violation of basic human rights but this is fucked beyond that.

Re: Fucking school camp

Find a few camps you actually want to go to. Then show them to your parents. They will be excited that you finally "caught the camping bug".

Re: Fucking school camp

You can go to the camp and then on the first day do something really cool (but that they will find stupid) like insult the fuck out of a teacher or do graffiti. Then they'll probably send you back home Biggrin Sure, your parents will probably be pissed off, but if thats what it takes...

I'm so sick of all these people but I'm scared to be alone...
