Camp is the story of Eli, a deeply troubled boy whose mother is a drug addict who neglects his care, and whose transient father floats in and out of his life. Eli is filled with rage from the physical abuse he has received from his father, but he longs for his love and approval. After Eli is taken to the hospital by police who respond to a domestic disturbance call on his 10th birthday, he is removed from his home and placed in Locustwood, a facility little better than a youth prison. 

Meanwhile, to impress a potential new client, investment adviser Ken Matthews signs up to be a camp counselor and is paired with Eli. Ken and Eli bunk in a cabin with counselor Samuel, back from his second tour of duty in the army, and Redford, a kid who thinks he is an alien. Determined to hate camp, Eli is way more than Ken can handle. 

Ken’s heart breaks as he learns about Eli's dark past while Eli slowly opens up to him. When an unauthorized visit from Eli’s father to camp sends everything spiraling out of control., Ken must decide what he is willing to sacrifice so that Eli will understand the meaning of unconditional love. 

Inspired by true stories from camps for abused and neglected children, Camp’s writer and director, Jacob Roebuck, tapped into real-life events to acknowledge the power of the camp experience and the opportunity it provides to give a second chance to those seemingly forgotten children who need adults in their lives.
