Storyline

To impress a potential client, financial adviser Ken Matthews signs up to be a counselor at a camp for children in the foster system. He is paired with Eli, a 10-year-old determined to hate camp. However, when Ken discovers Eli's dark past, his apathy turns to compassion. But is he to late to help the scared boy nobody wants? Inspired by true stories of ordinary people providing extraordinary help for abused and neglected children, "Camp" is a tale of hope shining in the dark places for forgotten children. For his performance in the role of Eli, actor Miles Elliot won Best Performance in a Feature Film by a Leading Young Actor at the 35th annual Young Artist Awards. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

You can actually volunteer at a Royal Family Kids Camp in real life! Mandatory training is required, often several months beforehand, so get in touch with your local Royal Family Kids organization ahead of time so you won't miss out on the opportunity. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, the Camp Director is reading an online request for Eli to be accepted at the camp. The text of the request notes that his mother recently died of a "heroine overdose". See more »

Alternate Versions

Some brief shots in the theater version of the movie were cut for the Christian bookstore version that doubles as the DVD version. One example mentioned in the commentary is when Ken gets Eli off the bolder the second time (at 31:31 in the DVD version, after the kickball scene) Eli flips Ken "the bird" before running off again in the Theater version (contributing to its PG-13 rating), but the bird shot was cut for the Christian bookstore version. The length of the movie on DVD is 1:49:15 (109 minutes 15 seconds) whereas announcements of its release in theaters cite a 1:50 runtime, so cuts were minimal. See more »

Heartfelt

I watched this not knowing it was based on true events but knowing this happens in life. While watching the credits I was so touched by all that I had seen and didn't mind how bad am actor Ken was for most of the movie. Very glad they added the real people at the end! It made my boring day seem so much better when the credits started. Eli was also a very decent little actor considering. And the little aliens counselor was by far the best actor in the entire movie. Maybe the crack head mom for 2nd. I think the people should do a documentary about the Camp alone! I would totally pay to see it. I would also volunteer my time. I think it is an awesome cause. And those people are awesome!
