Aug 01, 2014

Summer camp can be an unforgettable experience, whether you're making friends or going on an adventure. Take a look at the Top 10 Summer Camp Movies!

No.10: Summercamp!

Summercamp! is a documentary about the real-life campers at Wisconsin's Swift Nature Camp, and gives us a little slice of life when it comes to campers' experiences - from heartbreaks to successes.

No.9: SpaceCamp

Loads of kids dream of being astronauts, but the kids who go to Space Camp (which is a real thing!) are serious about it, and this oldie-but-a-goodie is all about a bunch of space campers being forced to put their new learned skills to the test when they're forced into orbit.

No.8: Camp Nowhere

For every kid who loves camp, there's one who doesn't (but of course is forced to go anyway). Camp Nowhere is about a group of camp misfits who subvert the system by creating their own camp and making their own rules - anything goes at Camp Nowhere!

No.7: Heavy Weights

Some plus-size kids are lured into what they think will be an easy weight-loss camp only to discover that the place is run by a deranged ex-fitness instructor who makes sure good health is hell in this offbeat comedy.

No.4: Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson is known for his loveable quirky films, and Moonrise Kingdom is no exception, set in the '60s it follows a 12-year-old orphan as he runs away with his morose pen pal.

No.3: The Addams Family Values

You might not think that this creepy clan are camp material, but fitting in is the name of the game and The Addams Family kids manage to put their own spooky spin on all the camp activities.
