Character error 

When Tony and the campers are going on their hike as punishment for not losing weight, Tony incorrectly talks about the Greek legend of Icarus who was sentenced to push a boulder up a hill for all eternity. Icarus is a Greek legend known for flying too close to the sun. It was Sisyphus to whom Tony should have been referring.

Factual errors 

The equation they have at the last race is not 11. It's not even a solvable equation as it only has one side (the other side just reads "?").

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the main dorm, there is a bathroom door that says "girls". Which is fine, but the camp is an all boys campus. However, this may not be a goof - it could be rented as a girl's camp at other points in the summer.

Plot holes 

Tony offers Nicholas a "chocolate kiss" to lure him closer to his cage. The boys had only just been through their all-night food and candy orgy. It's highly unlikely that Nicholas would be tempted by a little piece of chocolate, given he's been able to have whatever he wants to eat for days now.

Revealing mistakes 

When Tony is checking the camper's weights, he tells the camera man to roll, but the camera's tape deck is open.
