Summer camp -- an American staple -- provides juicy territory for film and television tales. Consider this: isolated, parent-free hordes of kids, monitored by counselors just a few years older. Perfect for comedy, horror and drama. And with NBC's new show "Camp" debuting on July 10 at 10 p.m., there's no time like the present to take a look at iconic summer camps and the tramps and scamps who populate them.
Little Otter Family Camp
Rachel Griffiths plays the owner of this summer camp, who is reeling after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. One-night stands with rival camp owners? First crushes? Flirty camp counselors? Those are all things you can expect on this funny show that will make you nostalgic for your own summers spent at camp.
(NBC's "Camp" is produced by BermanBraun, the same company that produces Wonderwall.)
