Douglas considers summer camp in ‘Charles In Charge’


When considering the summer, Douglas Pembroke (Jonathan Ward) isn’t too excited about going to summer camp anymore (summer camp sounds good in December) until he looks through the brochures and sees one for girls camp Camp Minihaha in the “Meet Grandpa” episode from season one of ’80s sitcom Charles In Charge (it starts at the 7:04 mark).

Realizing that Camp Wanna-Lose-A-Pound is on the other side of Bass Lake, Douglas decides he’s going to put on weight so he can be at camp near the girls on the brochure. A Camp Timberwood is also mentioned by name in the episode as one of the brochures Douglas looks at.
