Camp is a place of awakenings, a place of self-discovery through challenges physical and emotional. It’s where individuals have a chance to explore or even redefine themselves. Many of these journeys have been memorialized in film through favorites "Meatballs", "The Parent Trap", "Ernest Goes To Camp", "SpaceCamp", "Dirty Dancing", "Adams Family Values", and many more. Each of them some variation on the very real experiences of the average cinema-goer. The newest addition to the “camp movie” sub-genre takes the struggles of identity and places them in territory usually reserved for social commentary: religious camp. "Camp Manna", from co-writers and co-directors Eric Scott Johnson and Eric Machiela, lacks the crazy antics of lost kids and horny teens, but still finds its heart and hilarity in a tale of good-vs-evil, fellowship, and false prophets.
