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.

Misleading Description
19 April 2017 | by zaineegirlSee all my reviews

I started this movie thinking it was a Christian film. There were Christian references but it was mainly a film of Mormon characters. That was disappointing since I am a Christian. I stuck with it though and all in all it wasn't a horrible movie.

I didn't notice a lot of Mormon evangelism. However, there were references to prayer and the existence of Jesus. There was a strong emphasize on the need for teamwork which was the main theme of the movie.

I think many people will enjoy this movie. It would be great for a family movie night. The acting is great, there's humor and friendship.
