Preview: Summer Camp

Reality Competition with a Nostalgic Twist
USA Today
Matt Rodgers

Apparently, someone high up in the NBC Universal corporate family is incredibly nostalgic about some no doubt long-ago stint at summer camp.

Wednesday, NBC offered a scripted salute to s'mores and swimming with Camp, while tonight, sister network USA offers its Summer Camp (8pm) reality take on the same subject.

Sixteen adults head to a California retreat where they will compete in events inspired by classic camp games, culminating in an Olympic-themed "Campathalon." If imagining what those events might be brings back fond memories, then you're in the show's target audience. If it all seems completely juvenile and perplexing -- you're not.
