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?

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 »

A really great, but sad movie
30 April 2013 | by bartalleniiSee all my reviews

Just saw this at the local AMC. After seeing the write up, I knew it would be a sad movie, I just didn't expect this.

It's sad to know that there are kids out there that actually have life this rough, but knowing that there are people out there that are working to help these kids experience at least a week of joy is good to know.

This was a great movie, although the religious theme does come across as a bit much at points, but it doesn't detract from an otherwise good film.

If you're in the mood for a heartfelt drama with some light comedy and a lot of heart, go see this film. Definitely picking this up on DVD.
