In tents party animals

Instead of mauling the school with shaving cream or spray paint, Taylor Cullen, 18, and four friends camped out on Seaholm High School’s football field after graduation last weekend. Seems the crew was looking for a memorable adventure after a commencement party that lasted till 4 a.m. Cullen, two girlfriends and two boyfriends grabbed a tent, some rice cakes (that’s right) and headed back to school. “It was a lot of fun until it started raining,” says Cullen. “Everything got really wet.” One camper was scared the group would get busted for trespassing. But Cullen says guards posted around the school to prevent senior pranks never caught wind of these stealth outdoorsy types — despite the fact that actual senior pranksters paid visits to the tent around dawn. Cullen finally went to bed at 11 a.m. Monday, after a “really good time. It was a great way to end the year.”
