Whooo. I feel your pain. Made the mistake of telling my "critters in camp" stories to my daughters and nephew right before we turned in at camp last year. Spent half the night sitting up with my nephew until he finally fell asleep. It really worried them. I've learned to keep my stories to myself, at least until daylight.
