The first one I watched was CAMP because I was a camper and counselor for 10 years in my youth and loved every moment. Only this camp in this movie is a little different because the counselors work with abused and neglected children but just like my camp, it’s about helping kids and changing the lives of both kids and adults who are involved because camp in general just does that to a person. I liked that this movie dealt with both faith in God and building faith and trust in each other.
“CAMP” is the story of a deeply troubled boy, Eli (Miles Elliot, “The Mentalist”), and an apathetic investment advisor, Ken (Michael Mattera), who get paired together at a summer camp for foster kids and discover the meaning of unconditional love. “We are excited for the opportunity to share the story of CAMP,” said Director Jacob Roebuck. “We want to entertain audiences, but we also hope they are inspired to get involved in the lives of abused and neglected kids in their communities. We are thrilled to work with Word on the video distribution of the picture. Not only do they bring a first-class distribution team for mainstream and Christian markets, they also understand the heart behind the film.”
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.
The film is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 111 minutes. For more information about “CAMP,” Royal Family KIDS, Inc. and for a listing of upcoming engagements visit: www.campthemovie.com.
The second movie I watched was Season of a Lifetime which chronicles the terminal illness of Jeremy Williams, Head Coach of Greenville High. My husband nor my daughters are football players, nor do any of us barely watch the sport but you can’t help but be inspired by the life and determination of the coach in this documentary.
