Mrs. Oleson invites herself along on the Ingalls' campout after she concludes that Laura and Mary Ingalls will have the upper hand collecting leaves for a science project. The Ingalls and Olesons seem to mix like water and oil throughout the trip.

After learning a "scratching" good lesson about poison ivy, Laura and Nellie become trapped in a raging current, leading the rivals to rely on each other to save them from being swept away, nearly resulting in the two families bonding closer together. For a short time, the families do become closer until Nellie convinces her mother that Laura was trying to drown her.
