Goofs

Towards the beginning, there is a scene when a counselor is explaining the rules to the males (after they were checking out some of the females of the camp). When the counselor is walking slowly, he accidentally hits Jaleel White (Steve Urkel), then the angle switches and you see the counselor in a different position that contradicts him hitting the White with his arm/shoulder.

Summer camp for TV stars
3 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a made-for-TV movie from a delicious time period. NBC was putting their TV series' stars, mostly the teens, into fluffy TV movies sharing audiences and marketing costs (same concept as "Hope & Faith" being and "Regis & Kelly"). I encourage everyone to seek these out, though some (like CLASS CRUISE starring Billy Warlock) have simply disappeared. The best, in my opinion, are DANCE 'TIL DAWN and CAMP CUCAMONGA (both now available on DVD). Where else can you see Candace Cameron, Chad Allen, Jennifer Aniston, Jaleel White (Steve Urkel to those in the know), Paul from "The Wonder Years", Winnie from "The Wonder Years", Eric from "Head of the Class", and Sherman Hemsley all in the same place? Inarguably the most memorable moment is the fantastic rap video performed by the kids, "Camp Cucamonga is the place that's hip!"
