What’s it about?

Greg has just finished 7th grade and is looking forward to spending the summer holidays hanging out with his friend Rowley, playing video games and trying to get noticed by Holly. Greg’s Mum though, thinks he needs to spend more time outdoors so they go off on a family camping trip. Greg and his Dad often don’t see eye to eye and what’s meant to be special bonding time turns out to be quite disastrous.

What to look out for

There is some slapstick violence in this movie done for laughs and one scary moment for little kids when a ghost appears at the campfire.

Moral of the Story

Relationships are really important especially with your family and it’s also important to be honest and not tell lies.
