Product Description

Lane Speer is a 16 year old girl who spends her family vacations camping in the mountains. She takes the memories for granted until she loses her father to an unexpected bout with cancer. Only a year later, as Lane is still reeling from her father's death, her mother remarries a guy that Lane hardly knows. Worst of all, he is a Mormon. To top it off, while they are on their honeymoon, they arrange to have her stay with her Mormon step-aunt who takes her away to a bible-themed girls camp with a bunch of young Mormon girls. Confronted with memories of camping with her family, she tries to find peace with her new surroundings and deal with the death of her father.

    About the Author

    Excel Entertainment

    Excel Entertainment is the preeminent independent film distribution company in Utah, and though largely known for its Mormon-themed films (God’s Army, The Work & the Glory series, 17 Miracles, Pride & Prejudice, etc.), Excel has also had success releasing films with non-Mormon themes and stories (Forever Strong, Saints & Soldiers, etc.).

    Although the technology and means by which audiences consume films is changing rapidly, the demand for highly creative storytelling that motivates us to live up to the light that each of us has been given is as high as ever. We feel a deep obligation to not only bring stories of hope to the world, but to promote films with high standards of craftsmanship reflective of a belief in a divine and benevolent creator.

    This movie is fun, especially for those of us who have been beehives and have attended girls camp. I love that the main character in the movie is a non-member who went to camp with the group. There are cheesy parts for sure, but I feel like it was well done over all. The main girl does a pretty good job acting. Every young woman should see this movie, maybe the guys wouldn't get so much out of it, but it is a fun family movie.

    My whole family loves this film. My six year old daughter is totally in love with it. She watches it several times a week, knows the lines, and sings along with the songs. We're going to have to buy a few extra copies because she's just about worn out the last one. I wish Deseret Book sold the soundtrack as well.
    Thank you for a wonderful family film. ❤

    A fun summer movie!

    This movie brings back so many good memories of girl's camp in the mountains! This is a must see for anyone who has attended an LDS girls camp. This movie would be perfect to watch before or after camp, it's uplifting and fun.

    We were so disappointed this never came to our city when it was in the theaters so we made sure to get it the day it was released on DVD. We had all the Beehives over to watch it and they loved it. There was lots of laughing and a few tears as well. My four sons and our extended family of boys also watched the movie and enjoyed it. A definite must see!
