More Detail:

CAMP HIDEOUT is a comedy about a delinquent teenager who finds fellowship and faith at a Christian summer camp. CAMP HIDEOUT has some really funny scenes, touching moments and a strong Christian, moral worldview with references to church, crucifixes and biblical allusions, but Jesus is not overtly mentioned.

The movie opens with the teenager, Noah, running from a security guard. A flashback shows that Noah had met with two crooks, Charlie and Willis, who sneak him into the office of a game designer to steal a new handheld game device. Noah successfully steals the device but ran into the guard into the hallway. While running from the guard, he tossed the device to Charlie through a van window.

That same morning, Noah is supposed to get on a bus to take him to a court-ordered Christian summer camp. His social worker, Selena, is one of the camp counselors. Noah manages to get on the bus without the security guard noticing him. Noah isn’t happy about going to the camp, and, on the bus, he’s forced to sit next to a nerdy chubby boy named Oliver. Noah tries to ignore him, but Oliver is a talkative boy who refuses to be ignored. Later, at the camp, Noah is upset to learn that he’s sharing a cabin with Oliver and another boy, Chase.

Noah tries to remain aloof from everyone, but he causes trouble. For example, he starts a food fight with another boy, who just happens to be the son of the game designer. Noah also learns, to

his consternation, that he handed Charlie the wrong handheld game device. Instead, he handed Charlie a game device Noah received from his older brother, who died when Noah was younger.

When the device goes missing from his assigned cabin, Noah thinks the son of the game designer took it, However, he learns it was actually confiscated by an older man named Falco, who owns the camping facility and acts as the camp’s security man. On the first day at camp, Falco ominously warned everyone that he confiscates any electronic devices he finds.

Noah antagonizes almost everyone at the summer camp. However, when Charlie and Willis come looking for him at the camp, to retrieve the stolen game device, he must rely on the other children to help him stop the two crooks.

CAMP HIDEOUT has some really funny scenes. Some of the funniest scenes occur when the camp’s children use HOME ALONE tactics to frustrate the two crooks trying to get the game device from Noah. The acting is really good in CAMP HIDEOUT. However, the plot slows down a little bit in the middle.

CAMP HIDEOUT is a pretty wholesome, family-friendly movie and has a strong Christian, moral, uplifting worldview. Noah changes his ways, and the movie has references to church, the Bible, prayer, and crucifixes. However, Jesus and God are not overtly mentioned. So, the movie’s Christian worldview is not as strong as it could be.
