Float slideshow to the right

I'm having trouble getting the slideshow on this page https://www.bluecompasscamps.com/camps/ranch-camp-island-lakes/ to float to the right of the text. The camps on this site are set up using the custom fields for the section with camp type, age, dates, etc and the excerpt box for that small paragraph above them which is the only place I can add the slideshow shortcode, so unfortunately I can't work with the actual layout code and instead have to rely on css alone.

Anyone see what I'm missing there?

Unfortunately it won't let me use templates for the camps. The feature image is set up to show on the right, but they want those replaced with the slideshows. It's a bit of an odd set up there with a combo of beaver builder theme and a custom post type plugin that just lets you choose a new menu item for on the main wp-admin menu.

I tried using absolute positioning for the slideshow, which did let it go to the right, but then of course it widened the layout so the horizontal scroll bar shows in the browser. I didn't get as far as seeing how responsive that would even be because I really try to avoid the absolutes.

Julian, because of what you said I dug a little more and there is a themer layout for the camps in the beaver builder theme settings. I was able make it work by adding another custom field and calling it on the right. Thank you very much for your help!

The format here changed so I've been unsure on things. I chose the helpful because you made me go look again to see if maybe there was a way to deal with templates. So I thought that it would still give you the points, but I know it's best to also add a comment with the solution so when people come looking they might be able to find the answer in searches. Now I know though ;)
