  1. You have missed FreeK Camp in the fictional listings. It is for psychic teens and is found in the multi-award-winning FreeKs teen detectives series: FreeK Camp (2010), FreeK Show (2012), and FreeK Week (2014).

  2. I think the Alan Sherman song was spelled Camp Granada.
    Don’t forget FreeK Camp from the three psychic teen detective book (FreeK Camp, FreeK Show, and FreeK Week)–all with a capital K.

  3. Hello,
    you remember a summer camp movies or TV series that have these elements:
    – Big stink bomb
    – Helicopter / gyroplane to throw the stink bomb
    – A boss in a limousine with a mechanical prosthesis and leather gloves

    thank you

  4. You forgot camp Chitaqua- it’s from SPN in the alternate universe where Sam and Dean didn’t defeat Lucifer + Michael.
