“The people who came up from Fresno were so great to work with. It’s not a short drive and everyone always had a great attitude and a smile on their face,” says “Camp” producer Emily Shubin. “We are tremendously thankful to the community of Fresno for their support and look forward to bringing ‘Camp’ to the big screen in Fresno.”
Fresno is one of eight markets where the film opens this weekend. A portion of each ticket sold will go to support Royal Family Kids camps.
The film looks at a young boy dealing with a drug addict mother and an abusive father has his life changed when he ends up at a camp where he finds hope.
“Camp,” directed by Jacob Roebuck, is rated PG-13 for thematic elements, some violence, a crude gesture and brief language. It will be in Fresno for at least one week.
