Stanley Yelnats' Survival Guide to Camp Green Lake is a 2003 novel for young adults by Louis Sachar, first published by Yearling Books (Random House). It is the second in a series inaugurated in 1998 by the award-winning Holes.

Survival Guide is a "tongue-in-cheek handbook for newcomers" to Camp Green Lake, for a "more pleasant" trip than the one featured in Holes.[1]

The book features information on how to:

Dig the perfect hole

  • Identify rattlesnakes, tarantulas, yellow-spotted lizards, Mr. Sir, and other dangerous creatures
  • Win friends and influence people
  • How the other campers got there.

As of May 18, 2003, the book was ranked 8th by The New York Times on its list of bestselling Children's Paperback Books.[2]

It was released just over a month before the release of the film version of Holes.
