Saint Misbehavin’

What does a documentary about a clown named Wavy Gravy have to do with summer camp?

Well, Wavy Gravy might be one of the most colorful characters ever associated with summer camp. He’s most definitely the only summer camp founder to have a Ben & Jerry’s flavor of ice cream named after him.

Hippie, entertainer, peace activist and clown, Wavy Gravy is the co-founder of Camp Winnarainbow, an ACA-accredited circus and performing arts camp near Laytonville, Cal., now in its 35th year.
