Synopsis

90 kids are let loose in the woods at Swift Nature Camp in northern Wisconsin. Camp is a place where kids can be kids, where their home and school lives momentarily fade into the background as they go through the highs and lows of adolescent rituals: sing-alongs, talent shows, homesickness, counselor mutiny--and first love. Amidst group activities, showy arguments, and secret conversations, some of the campers we meet are: Cameron-- struggling with popularity at camp, his anti-social antics push him and his counselors to the edge. Spencer--ultra-articulate and a self proclaimed "Leader, not follower." He can be found brooding and reading Tom Clancy by the lake. Holly--a self-reflective loner who obsesses over chickadees and pocket able friends. Boo--bright and quick-witted, she revels in the plethora of friends she finds at camp; a stark contrast to the loneliness she feels at home.
