The Parent Trap

The 1998 version of The Parent Trap will convince us all that we have a secret twin who was separated from us at birth. This is a must-see for any camping movies for kids list. As you might expect from a Disney film, the humor is of the family slapstick sort. Watch out for the epic handshake!

It Takes Two

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were just two pretty twins before they became great fashion designers. This camping movie for kids has a lot of similarities to The Parent Trap, except that the two identical girls are not actually long-lost sisters. It’s absurd but they’re just two girls that share a striking resemblance in appearance.

Magic Camp

This unique camping movie for kids is one of Disney’s cheesier flicks. The actor, Adam DeVine, plays excellent as a semi-failed magician who returns as a counselor to the same summer camp he adored when he was a kid. The campers are fantastic, there’s plenty to chuckle about, it’s quite touching, and it’s a fun family film.

Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang are always good for some warm, innocent fun and this camping movie which sees Charlie and the rest of the crew visiting the pleasant Camp Remote summer camp, is no exception. Kids will love this as the crew deal with some bullies and river rapids that are far more dangerous than they expected.
