Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The entire process of Star Camp, along with one-on-one interviews with the kids, appears online in 15-minute segments. But despite its online format, the show looks a lot like other talent-based reality shows on TV. Short profiles of cast members appear alongside full-length video installments to augment the program. And links to a message board appear right next to the video player, allowing viewers to weigh in quickly on what they've seen.

The kids, as well as Cannon, are charming, largely genuine, and hugely talented. Tweens and teens who watch might be inspired to practice their various skills with hopes of getting opportunities like the Star Camp kids. On the other hand, with its emphasis on superstardom, the show sends a message that making it big (fame/money) is the greatest goal. Parents may want to emphasize that being good at something is a goal in itself.

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.
