Raw. Powerful. Absolutely inspiring and touching! I was totally captivated from the beginning to the end. And I cried more than once. I really enjoyed the movie and loved all the different characters (campers and counselors). There's even a cool surprise near the end of the movie :). It's incredible how one week of camp can make such an enormous impact on the lives of these children who have endured so much hardship. Excellent performance! Kudos to all the real-life campers who volunteer their time to help foster kids have fun and experience God's love, hope, friendship, encouragement, safe environment, and trust. These broken and forgotten kids desperately need caring & understanding adults in their lives to positively influence, guide, and nurture them.

“This is a wonderful film about healing the wounds of your past... We are pleased to award this movie our Dove ‘Family-Approved’ Seal for ages 12 and over.” ~The Dove Foundation
“Most of the time, movies and television shows spotlight the lighter side of youth camps, but CAMP goes deeper to bring viewers face-to-face with the transformation that happens in the lives of children and even the adults that volunteer. It is incredibly heart affecting, even through the real-life interviews that play during the credits.” ~DeWayne Hamby (Christian Retailing, White Wing Messenger)
“Hollywood loves to entertain us. But CAMP does more than entertain – it inspires. It beautifully illustrates the huge impact the small sacrifice of a week’s time can make in the life of a child in foster care.” ~Julie Gumm, best-selling author of “Adopt without Debt”
