Overview

A slick investment advisor attempts to impress a prospective client by volunteering as a counselor at a camp for foster children, and begins to reassess his priorities after developing a bond with a young boy from a broken home in this tender drama inspired by actual events. Eli's mother is a drug addict, and his father is physically abusive. When police answer a domestic disturbance call at Eli's home on his 10th birthday, the young boy is placed in a youth facility where compliance takes precedence over compassion. Meanwhile, Ken Matthews is an investment banker with a bright future. In a calculated effort to dazzle his latest client, a wealthy heiress, Ken volunteers at a youth camp for at-risk children. There, he's paired with Eli Miles Elliot. As the two settle into a cabin shared with compassionate counselor Samuel Asante Jones and his quirky charge Redford, it doesn't take long for Ken to realize that he's way out of his league. Eli sees right through Ken, and lashes out at him whenever possible. At first, Ken responds with frustration and anger. The more he learns about Eli's tragic past however, the more his heart goes out to him. In time Ken learns to love Eli unconditionally, a love that's soon challenged when the young boy's brutish father pays an unexpected visit to the camp. At that moment Eli's plight becomes real to Ken, prompting the once-neglectful counselor to do some serious soul searching, and make a sacrifice that could drastically alter the future of a boy who's stuck in a dangerous downward spiral.

    I love it when you watch a movie that (1) is based on true stori

    I love it when you watch a movie that (1) is based on true stories and (2) moves you to tears and action. Such is the case on the latest DVD from Word Films, CAMP. Based on true stories from camp counselors, founders of Royal Family Kids and even former campers, CAMP takes a look through the ways in which volunteers who work at CAMP Pine, one week a year to help troubled kids forget their personal problems and provide a way to have fun and be loved in ways they could only imagine.

    Ken Matthews is your typical ego centered financial advisor who believes that life revolves around making even more money than he already has. When a potential client is about to slip through his fingers, his assistant convinces her that Ken has offered to volunteer at a summer camp she sponsors as a way to give back to the community. Seeing this as a chance to secure the deal of a lifetime, Ken agrees to head to a camp for young kids believing it will simply be a piece of cake. He is instructed to read the rules of being a volunteer counselor since he is joining pretty late into the program, which he believes is optional and more trouble than it's worth. He fails to understand just what he has signed up for until he arrives at Camp Pine and finds himself as Eli's counselor.

    Eli is a young boy who has been abused by both of his parents and now lives in Foster care. His whole life has been a series of reminders that he is neither good enough or worthy enough of any love. What he finds in Ken is someone who reminds him of his parents, someone who is buying their time until they are rid of Eli. So Eli lashes out at not only Ken but the other kids in camp further isolating himself from the group in an attempt to justify how everyone in his life has made him feel. Will Ken be able to find a way to reach Eli before he does something that will not only risk his own life but the lives of everyone at camp?

    I received CAMP compliments of Word Films and Edify Media Inc for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is a hard film to watch since it involves the abuse of a young boy, but we can't just pretend these things don't happen because we don't want to see them. The best part of this DVD is the incredible organization Royal Family KIDS which the true inspiration that makes this a must see. It will move you to tears and will hopefully move you to action either in involving yourself as a volunteer for Royal Family KIDS or even to financial support them in any way possible. It is simply too hard to not doing anything after watching this amazing inspirational and truly unforgettable life-changing movie. I personally rate it a 5 out of 5 stars.
