Trivia

You can actually volunteer at a Royal Family Kids Camp in real life! Mandatory training is required, often several months beforehand, so get in touch with your local Royal Family Kids organization ahead of time so you won't miss out on the opportunity. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the film, the Camp Director is reading an online request for Eli to be accepted at the camp. The text of the request notes that his mother recently died of a "heroine overdose". See more »

Alternate Versions

Some brief shots in the theater version of the movie were cut for the Christian bookstore version that doubles as the DVD version. One example mentioned in the commentary is when Ken gets Eli off the bolder the second time (at 31:31 in the DVD version, after the kickball scene) Eli flips Ken "the bird" before running off again in the Theater version (contributing to its PG-13 rating), but the bird shot was cut for the Christian bookstore version. The length of the movie on DVD is 1:49:15 (109 minutes 15 seconds) whereas announcements of its release in theaters cite a 1:50 runtime, so cuts were minimal. See more »

I praise this movie for what it did achieve: to give hope
12 June 2014 | by rcarol321See all my reviews

After reading the description, I dreaded watching the movie 'Camp' (2013) that it might be too much for me to handle. I tried to avoid watching it but curiosity overpowered me. The message of this movie is so tangible you will not regret investing 109 minutes. I enjoyed this film and ended with tears in my eyes in several occasions throughout the movie because of how sincerely life-changing an ordinary summer camp can be and the change a team can make in an abused child's life. The performance was adequate however, there was room for improvement. The plot might have been developed further to cause the impact it was shooting for. I recommend this movie to the whole family especially to preteens. It presents the crude reality of many children and the work of unsung heroes in their lives. This production was a great investment. I praise this movie for what it did achieve: to give hope.
