A group of juvenile criminals is sent for vacation to Kamp Kikakee. The clumsy Ernest has to care for them, although he doesn't even know how to take care of himself. The other children at the camp show enmity against them, but the group knows very well how to defend themselves. They do also help the Indian owner of the camp when a brutal mining corporation wants to tear down the camp to mine a rare mineral. Written by

Ernest goes to camp was released in 1987 to not so good reviews. That didn't stop people from going to the theater. The film brought in nearly 25 million domestically. That's pretty good considering the film cost only 3 million to make. This movie might not be award winning, but if truly watched, you'll find that Ernest P. Worrell isn't as annoying after all. He can be funny at times. The story isn't all that bad for being written by unknowns. It involves Ernest, a goofball counselor who must save his camp from being destroyed by miners with the help of some juvenile kids. It's more interesting than it sounds. Give it a try, you'll know in the first 15 minutes whether it's your kind of movie or not.
