Movie Info

Documentary filmmakers Bradley Beesley and Sarah Price take viewers back to the sun-soaked days of summer as they follow campers ages 6 through 15 to a place where lifelong friendships are forged, and the struggle against homesickness yields a better understanding of the true value of independence. With music by the Flaming Lips and Noisola, Summercamp! is a warm tribute to an long-running institution that holds a special place in the hearts of countless Americans.

Critic Reviews for Summercamp!

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (12)

Summercamp! maintains a gentle, lackadaisical tone that eloquently captures the triumphs and traumas of this ageless ritual.

Brief bits of real charm, personality and camp-life detail squeeze through, suggesting why some thrive in an oasis of animal worship, outdoor revelry and zero-to-hero popularity that forgives a nerdy rep back home.

Unlike the intense cadets for Christ and creationism in the recent documentary Jesus Camp, the kids in the sweet Summercamp! have fun!

It observes the specific until the specific turns universal, and the universal until you find yourself moved beyond words.

A film only a mother could love.

A sweeter, more unassuming movie isn't likely to come our way anytime soon.

Audience Reviews for Summercamp!

An ok doc but pretty boring. We follow around a bunch of kids but there isn't enough screen time to really get to know these people. I would have rather seen this tackle the summer camp from the view of the counselors.
It plays more like a commercial for the camp at times. It's ok to miss this one.
