     Summer's approaching, and Morris "Mud" Himmel has a problem. His parents desperately want to send him away to Chip-a-wa Computer Camp, also known as eight weeks of nerd hell. He hates the idea, and would do anything to get out of it. Talking to his friends, he realizes that they are all facing the same unwelcome vacation: a boring summer camp. It's off to a paramilitary camp for Zack (Andrew Keegan), a fat farm for Gaby (Melody Kay) and drama camp for Trish (Marne Paterson). 

     With his friends, he hatches a plan to trick all the parents into sending them to a camp of his own design. No rules, no stupid activities, no dumb counselors--just eight weeks of unsupervised bliss. Blackmailing former drama teacher Dennis Van Welker, best known for his notorious musical version of "The Silence of the Lambs" into helping, they convince the parents that the camp is genuine, and that they aren't allowed to visit... Everything seems to work perfectly, except that word gets out around school and before Mud can do anything, half his classmates get in on the scam. 

     The camp itself was once a hippie commune, but quickly--and with the help of their parents' money--the kids transform it into a kid's paradise, complete with water cannons, computer games and a wide-screen TV. Along the way, the children have fun (most of it fairly harmless), overcome hardships and petty squabbles, and find themselves. Even Dennis, who has run away from most of the tough decisions in his life, learns to stand up and take responsibility like a real grown-up. In the end, the kids get busted, and after the parents freak out, things return to normal, or do they...
