What a bunch of (mostly) dogs! The average of the list is 6.0 stars!

Jesus Camp is more frightening than any ax murderer movie!

FYC:
Little Darlings (Tatum O'Neal and Kristy McNichol race to see who can lose their v-card first)
Camp (starring Anna Kendrick)
Addams Family Values
Summerhood
The Final Girls
But I'm a Cheerleader
American Pie Presents: Band Camp
Fired Up!
Camp Nowhere
Gorp
Oddballs
Camp Takota
The Burning
Happy Campers
Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown
Dirty Dancing
Troop Beverly Hills
Fired Up

You could just add a note to Parent Trap like "or the remake" for the (inferior) Lindsay Lohan version. Same with Friday the 13th and its sequels and remake(s).

There are some other camp documentaries as well - I only gave you fictional feature films.

Didn't like The Final Girls. Can't believe I forgot Band Camp and Little Darlings.

Looks like you missed the word "went" in the list description. And I think it should be "whether it be". My suggestion:

As Peter suggested above, please edit the description to:

This is a good idea for a poll. Moonrise Kingdom would get my vote. I'd suggest making the edits that Peter suggested; this is a good, well made poll and making those edits make it more likely that this will go live. :)
