I saw this movie at the International Film Festival in Toronto, Summer 2006, and absolutely loved it. The doc was inspired by a radio piece aired by This American Life on WBEZ in Chicago. While children and the outdoors may get far too much credit and attention in today's world, this documentary certainly deserves all the attention it can get. The crew gives attention to the basics of three weeks of camp life, camp counselors, and the boys' and girls' dynamics with hilarity. Ultimately, the emphasis falls upon two individual campers. Both stories are wonderful, poignant, a little creepy, yet inspiring. I've never been happier revisiting the awkwardness of youth, contented in my own age, or resolved to send my own children off for the Summer.
