The Best Fictional Summer Camps from TV and Film

Every summer there's that magic moment when everyone packs up, says goodbye to their parents and ships off to camp. Now it's time to pack in, say goodbye to productivity, and head back to Camp Firewood. That's right after all these years Netflix has more Wet Hot American Summer and the entire gang is back!

We've decided to compile a list of all of the greatest fictional camps of all time - whether that means the fun-loving Camp Firewood; the vigilant and educational Camp Hope (Heavyweights); the wonky, silly, and ever so symmetrical Camp Ivanhoe (Moonrise Kingdom); or the terrifying Camp Crystal Lake (Friday the 13th). So feel free to venture from camp to camp between binge watching episodes of Wet Hot American Summer or enjoying the best camp movies of all time.

These are the best fictional summer camps ever! Vote up those you wish you could have really stayed at as a kid, then re-watch your favorite summer camp shows and summer camp movies to at least feel like you're there!
