Camp Grizzly

This cast photo was from a 1980 ABC TV show pilot that never panned out.

The show depicted life at Uncle Bernie’s Camp Grizzly, a run down summer camp with decrepit facilities and incompetent counselors. In the pilot, Nick, a counselor, wants his kids to win a swimming contest so he can spend time with Missy, the camp’s only female counselor, and her girls on a camping trip.

The half-hour pilot aired on June 30, 1980. Pictured left to right are Richard Cos, Hilary Thompson and Demetre Phillips.
