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.

This is pretty much a kid's show. It's pleasant, but not strong in any way except for scenery. It's about a boy's summer camp in Arizona, but it's not obnoxious or crude. It's a mostly light-hearted, innocent fun. The movie follows two 8 year old friends and a small group of rivaling 16 year old camp leaders.
The background landscapes are great. The small lakes and hills are visually colorful and delightful to watch. However, the content and characters of the movie, while nice, can't quite match the scenery. It's a nice/OK movie, but maybe only worth watching if you're a young child.
