Storyline

To impress a potential client, financial adviser Ken Matthews signs up to be a counselor at a camp for children in the foster system. He is paired with Eli, a 10-year-old determined to hate camp. However, when Ken discovers Eli's dark past, his apathy turns to compassion. But is he to late to help the scared boy nobody wants? Inspired by true stories of ordinary people providing extraordinary help for abused and neglected children, "Camp" is a tale of hope shining in the dark places for forgotten children. For his performance in the role of Eli, actor Miles Elliot won Best Performance in a Feature Film by a Leading Young Actor at the 35th annual Young Artist Awards. Written by Anonymous

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 »

What an amazing film! The Director did an amazing job at clearly expressing the the tender yet life changing emotions at Camp. This movie will take a hold of your heart and place you into the world of foster kids and what goes on in their lives daily. You will also find yourself cheering and wiping away tears as you travel through the emotions of the movie! All of the actors and actresses should be praised and thanked for there absolute dedication to their role. However Miles Elliot stood out most to me. He played his role with such maturity and sincerity! I can see many more movies in the making for this kid! Finally go out and support the children of your community and see this movie! It will change thousands of lives including yours!
