Super cute

Honestly, it was the best family movie night we have watched in a while. It’s funny, and it’s entertaining. The magic tricks are awesome. Even after a couple of emotional moments, my seven-year-old son had a little tear at one moment so sweet.

Fun, Low Stress Family Fun

Magic Camp is a fun film for families with kids of just about any age. A typical "camp" movie about kids from different backgrounds coming together to compete in a magic show competition, the film threads several heart warming, if slightly predictable, story lines. Our family (kids 11 and 14) were engaged throughout and found many of the characters relatable and engaging. Highly recommended.
