About the show

Part of the New York Musical Festival: Relive the days of lanyards, bunk beds, and bug juice in this new tuner about summer camp. Based on Stacy Davidowitz's YA book series. More…

Pack up your duffle bags and head to Camp Rolling Hills for another wild summer of tune-filled campfires, bunks, and treasure hunts (for missing underwear, that is!). From learning a new sport, to discovering a new talent, to finding their first love, these 12 tweens are off on an eight-week adventure that will forever change their lives. It doesn’t matter if you are a nerd, a jock, a tomboy, or a girly-girl because true friendships are made when all the rules are broken. After all, there is a different definition of cool at Camp!
