"CAMP" Movie Review & GIVEAWAY!! (9/25)

*Disclosure: I received a copy of the movie, CAMP, in exchange for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any other way.


About the movie, "CAMP":
Inspired by true stories from camps for abused and neglected children, the film’s writer and director, Jacob Roebuck, tapped into real-life events to acknowledge the power of the camp experience and the opportunity it provides to give unconditional love to those seemingly forgotten children who need adults in their lives.

“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 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.
 
"CAMP" released on DVD August 27th.  The movie is rated PG-13 and runs 111 minutes.

My Review: 
"CAMP" is truly a great movie to watch.  There were times that it kept me guessing and other times that it made me laugh and yet other moments where it made me cry.  My heart broke for the boy, Eli, as well as all of the abused and neglected kids.  To watch this and see how the camp experience really changes not only the children, but the adults that work there, is truly inspirational!
 
Even though this movie seemed to show as little abuse as possible, yet just enough for you to understand what was happening, the whole theme is too much for young children.  It is rated PG-13 and I would not recommend that any young child see it.  I do highly recommend it, though, as a wonderfully moving film to watch with your spouse.
 
 
Buy It!
CAMP, on DVD, can be purchased through The Camp Movie website for $16.95.  Special Edition Blu-ray+DVD is also available for $24.95.
