Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

The kids' close encounters with reptiles, birds, marine mammals, and fish make for fascinating viewing. Tweens and young teens watching the program get to live vicariously through the kids on screen while finding out all kinds of intriguing things about the animals. In addition to the information the camp directors offer when they introduce each new species, facts about the species also appear briefly on screen -- such as average dimensions and what the critter's diet consists of.

Viewers are sure to be drawn in by the enthusiasm of these eight lucky kids as they compete for beads, bond with each other, and make wondrous discoveries. It's great to see a show for tweens and teens that conveys such excitement about -- and respect for -- the animal world. And who knows, it may inspire a few animal-related careers along the way?

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
