A family oriented story revolving around Brent Butler (Gemini Barnett), a wiser-than-his years youngster. A modern day Tom Sawyer. The majority of the story takes place at a boys and girls camp owned and operated by Travers (Lee Majors), who has spent a lifetime of quietly helping adolescents become confident young adults. In addition to the full gamut of camp activities, adventures, practical jokes, and conflict resolution there is the underling theme that bolsters the importance of a positive father-son relationship.

Clean, old fashioned family movie with good moral.
OK, somewhat cheesy in spots and while not an edge of your seat, thrill a minute, definitely a good family movie. The bully and braggart gets his comeuppance in a comical if predictable manner. The adult actors seemed somewhat stilted but the youngsters did an excellent job. It will be interesting to see where their careers go from here. I went to see this movie in order to support a local Arizona writer/actor. As a native of Prescott, Arizona, it was great to see my hometown featured. Great scenic shots. Take your kids to see it. You could do much worse. It's not bad for an independent making his first film. I hope to see more locals get a chance.
