Lost Relics of the '90s: Camp Nowhere

Watch Camp No Where online free!Hey there Dacitonians, The Dace Man is back to take you down nostalgia Route '90 and give you another Lost Relic from the golden age of entertainment! Last time I re-exposed you to the gem that is Europop by the band Eiffel 65, this time I'm going to jog your memory with a film from 1994. Directed by Jonathan Prince, written by Andrew Kurtzman and Eliot Wald, and starring Christopher Lloyd, Jonathan Jackson, and a very young Jessica Alba in her film debut, Camp Nowhere fed into the fantasy of every child who grew up at this time: a chance to get away for a summer and experience life's firsts, and overall have an epic adventure that would live on for years to tell.

The story follows a young kid nicknamed Mud as his parents decide to kick his butt out of the house for the summer and send him to computer camp. Mud would go on to find that his friends all suffered a similar fate—just to different camps. Enter Christopher Lloyd playing the character of a former drama teacher named Dennis who happens to owe money on a AMC Gremilin he bought. Insert classic '90s children blackmail, and the group is off to a camp to do whatever they want for the summer. After enjoying a summer of freedom, that dreaded Family Day that ultimately happens at all camps comes along, and then they have to spring into action to cover for what they've actually been doing. Sprinkle on some morality lessons because it's a Disney film and of course the send off of the Christopher Lloyd character who learned something, and you have your self a Lost Relic of the '90s!

I absolutely love this film because it allows me, a kid at the time who lived in his own world of creativity and ADD, to submerse myself into the idea of a summer of freedom where anything can happen. Even at the age of 25, I still have high hopes of that memorable summer that we can sing about in the fall just like John Travolta in Grease, but hey a crazy man can dream, right? I leave you with the trailer and most likely the urge to find this on Amazon or Netflix or something…you're welcome. Excuse the quality; after all, it was the '90s.
