Storyline

Lane Speer is a 16-year-old girl who spends her family vacations camping in the mountains. She takes the memories for granted until she loses her father to cancer. Only a year later, Lane is still reeling from her father's death as her mother marries a guy that Lane hardly knows - a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. To top it off, while they are on their honeymoon, they arrange to have her stay with her LDS step-aunt who takes her away to a Bible-themed girls' camp with a bunch of young LDS girls. Confronted with memories of camping with her family, she tries to find peace with her new surroundings and deal with her father's death.

Great Family Flick
22 April 2020 | by stacyerickson5See all my reviews

Honestly I wasn't going to give it a 10 because it's not an Oscar Winning movie. However... I gave it a ten because for a low budget indie film it's done well! Clever, sweet, funny and clean. It's a cute and melodramatic insight to Christian girls camp.
