We were given the chance to review the movie Camp in exchange for an honest blog post. I’m glad that the kids and I had the chance to review it.
Camp is one of those movies that literally makes me cry those lovely happy tears. It makes me cry because I am a child from an abusive situation. This movie is about a camp that is designed to be a safe haven for kids who have endured many child traumas.
Eli, is a child who has had to endure some pretty harsh life realities. He comes to Camp with a chip on his shoulder bigger than the size of Texas. Ken, a big time business man who doesn’t really want to be a counselor, is paired up with Eli. Together you get to see their relationship unfold throughout their week at camp.You’ll have to watch the movie to determine who really gained the most from their time spent together at camp.
This movie gave my itch to start up my equine therapy center all over again. Just when I think that dream has died down, something happens to make me want it to come alive all over again. I can’t begin to tell you the amount of times I’ve envisioned my Mom’s property turning into just that. However, I don’t have the means to make that happen.
I feel this movie is truly a remarkable one to watch. My kids LOVED it to pieces. I kept pausing it to get their reaction to it, and they ran to get some small chore done just to hurry up and come back to watching it. So, I knew that this was a remarkable movie in their eyes too.
Since both of my boys have compassionate hearts they were steadily encouraging Eli all throughout the movie. They were down grading his counselor too. It was rather funny.
Here’s some information about the film that I think is really worth passing on:
Roebuck received inspiration for the film when he joined a summer missions trip and had the opportunity to help abused and neglected children through a program called Royal Family Camp. Once there, he felt the call to help the children he met that so desperately needed contact with loving and caring adults. A portion of the proceeds from the film benefit Royal Family KIDS, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that serves as the nation’s leading network of camps for abused, neglected and abandoned children.
