Camp Cool Kids
Spence (Connor Rosen, “The Muppets”) and his big brother Zach (Logan Shroyer, “This is Us”) move to a new home with their mother (Leigh-Allyn Baker, “Good Luck Charlie”) and grandpa (Michael Gross, “Tremors”). Spence has a hard time adjusting and is fearful of everything. Grandpa encourages Spence to have faith in himself as he heads off with his brother to one of his greatest challenges yet, Camp Istrouma.
There, Zach and Spencer make friends in opposing cabins. Spence joins the Armadillos and befriends Firefly (Tyree Brown, “Parenthood”) and Little John (Julioceasar Chavez, “Transformers: The Last Knight”). With the help of camp counselor (A.J. Trauth, Soul Surfer) they sharpen their skills in boating, archery and rock climbing to prepare for the Camp Istrouma Games. Zach joins the Pelicans, a team of bullies. They play several pranks on the Armadillos, turning the brothers against each other, causing an all-out battle to sabotage each other’s teams. Zach and Spence both discover that with their faith in God and each other, they can overcome all obstacles and work together to win a trophy in the process.”
“Camp Cool Kids” is a wonderful faith-friendly story about two brothers who go off to camp and learn some valuable lessons. They learn to have faith not only in God but in themselves; to make the right choices, it is ok to be different and the all-important lesson of forgiveness.Zach and Spencer are trying to make new friends as they have just moved to this area with their mother and moved in with their grandfather. Both boys have some issues going on after the loss of their father, so camp may just be the thing to help them both and help their relationship. This movie is inspirational for the entire family while also teaching a few Bible stories that can start conversations. It encourages children not to be bullies, to do the right thing, that cheaters never win, and about God’s love. We are proud to award our Faith-Friendly Approved Seal for all ages to ” Camp Cool Kids.”
