Storyline

Sixteen-year-old Ryan Delaney has won a scholarship, but it's not a full one, so he needs a summer job to pay for his university expenses. And although he's not eighteen, he can't swim, and has never been to camp, he manages to get a job as a camp couselor. But his mother makes him take his younger brother, Sullivan, with him to camp, since she can't look after him while she's working. But camp turns out to be harder than both Ryan and Sullivan thought it would be; and as they fight their battles, they learn about each other, themselves, and what they can do together.

A Wonderful movie

This is such a wonderful movie that really evokes your sense of humanity. A touching tale about the relationship between two brothers while on a summer camp, set out in the 1930's era. A film that really comes out as somewhat 'real' and heart-warming. I was fortunate to watch this movie on the Hallmark channel in 2000, but didn't quite get the name until this day after a long search-it is a must-keep which really brings to mind the essence of family and life I think in general. Brilliant performances from the cast. The budding relationship between the younger brother and the much older lady camp owner really had a sense of originality and realness. I strongly recommend this film to all those who are interested in films that remind us of the adversities that we are all prone to and the determination of the human spirit to overcome these.
