The Summer Camp Uprising revolves around three men representing three different generations. Nelson Cohen is the camp owner and director and has been doing things his way with great success for years. Vico Leone is the new Head Counselor, in charge of camp programming as well as staff motivation and discipline. Joey Katz, group leader for the oldest boys, comes to camp after a school year in which he was an active protest leader. Joey has his own ideas on how a camp should be run and is vocal in his opposition to some of the camp’s parietal rules for the Counselors. The conflict of cultures is ripe to explode and does.
