19 Commercials Set at Summer Camp

Super Bowl weekend is about more than just the football. It’s also a big weekend for advertisers who drop large quantities of money to show commercial spots during the game or spend significantly less to pretend their commercial was banned from the broadcast and generate buzz on YouTube. I don’t have much interest in the game or the commercials but since everyone talks so much about commercials this time of year I thought it would be appropriate to share a list of commercials that have been set at summer camp.
