Critic Reviews for Summercamp!
No excerpt available.
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!
Audience Reviews for Summercamp!
A fine documentary that covers 3 weeks of children at a nature camp. It is a little too broad at times, keeping some kids too distant, but it's a great nostalgia trip into childhood.
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.
Cute film albeit short with very little structure. Makes me feel like my films will do just as well. It is definitely adorable as the kids themselves are great in a "they say the darnedest things" way. Simply a charming film though with little to no conflict or arc.
