This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is something every kid either treasures or despises: going to a summer camp. I fucking hate camping. I did church camp once and girl scout camp another time and I hated every minute of it. I love being outdoors, but I also love coming home to warm shower and a nice clean bed...inside. Not getting rained on in tents. These three films are camping movies I preferred watching as a kid instead of doing the real thing.
1) Camp Nowhere
These kids are total shits, right? They don't want to go to real camp so they black mail their teacher into starting a fake camp with no adult supervision. Actually, I thought that was kind of awesome and Christopher Lloyd was sort of the man when I was a child. He was Emmett Brown AND the Pagemaster.
2) Heavy Weights
AKA that movie with all the fat camp jokes. You know that big trampoline into the lake looked awesome.
This movie is inherently creepy when you think about it. An escaped convict posing as a scout leader while on the run? A training bra gets used as a slingshot at one point. I watched this movie so much.
BONUS: Moonrise Kingdom - I love this movie, and I had to throw one serious pick in there.
