Haunted by a traumatic past, Emily, a young woman, has decided to work as a counselor at a camp for troubled youth. She closely befriends her fellow female counselors yet suspects them of witchcraft in service of a woodland spirit that promises supernatural powers. Emily must now choose between entering their world of evil and magic or going back to her life of trauma and suffering.
The vision I have for CAMP is very personal to me as it comes from a story close to my heart. Although this is a horror film it will also have an essence of nostalgia surrounding the setting and the relationships the characters build together. CAMP is a warm, meaningful, and dreadful account of a young woman finding her way in the world.
