Plot Summary

The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve. At the center of the action is camp director Beth, who struggles to keep order while she falls in love with the local astrophysics professor. He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Trivia The owners of Camp Towanda (where the movie was filmed) were told that this was going to be a family comedy. They were mortified when they saw the final cut of the film. See more »
Goofs Many of the continuity "mistakes" were included intentionally by the filmmakers and were meant to be subtle and funny, including Neil's hair in the motorcycle chase scene and the differing level of completion of the blanket that Nancy is knitting when she gives Beth and Henry the library advice.
