Arizona Summer is a family oriented story revolving around Brent Butler (Gemini Barnett), a wiser-than-his years youngster. A modern day Tom Sawyer. The majority of the story takes place at a boys and girls camp owned and operated by Travers (Lee Majors), who has spent a lifetime of quietly helping adolescents become confident young adults. In addition to the full gamut of camp activities, adventures, practical jokes, and conflict resolution there is the underling theme that bolsters the importance of a positive father-son relationship.
The film’s apparent claim to fame is that it was directed by John Travolta’s brother, Joey.
