Lego Wet Hot American Summer

I’ve had Wet Hot American Summer on the brain a lot lately so I went ahead and built one of the cabins from the 2001 movie and upcoming Netflix series.

The movie was shot at Camp Towanda in Pennsylvania so the red with white trim cabins are inspired by the real-life buildings at the Pennsylvania camp, which doubles for the fictional Maine summer camp Camp Firewood.

The Netflix series, set on the first day of camp in 1981, was shot in California, but the cabins were built to resemble the ones in the film, which was set on the last day of camp in 1981. It would have been fun to build more than just the one cabin, but I quickly ran out of red pieces.
