Is It Any Good?

From the manipulative blonde to the geeky underdog, Summer Camp contains all the characters one would expect from a reality show. It also contains lots of voyeuristic moments, as each person attempts to find ways to stay in the game or romantically pair up with another contestant.

Some folks may like watching people compete in canoe competitions or toilet paper each other's cabins. But aside from the refreshing lakeside camp setting, this series doesn't offer anything particularly new.

Did we miss something on diversity?
