10 Movies NOT to Watch Before You Send Your Kids to Camp

movies not to watch when your kid is at campSummer camp is an exciting time for parents and kids alike! For kids, the chance to scuttle off to an overnight camp offers a taste of freedom and a wealth of new experiences out from under the watchful gaze of their parental units. For us parents, as much as we might adore our kids, a little vacation never hurt us either! I'm just saying. You know I speak truths. Plus, you know that finding stuff for the kids to do over the summer is not unlike pulling teeth at times. 

You might want to spend some of your rare and newly acquired free-time watching a movie. No shame in that game! What's better than a summertime movie, snacking on popcorn and sitting in an air-conditioned living room? Not a thing, that's what. But you'd better be careful. There are sure to be some movies floating around cable this time of year that will have you kicking yourself for sending the kids away! 

Oh, the shenanigans that Hollywood would have you believe your kids are up to when you ship them off for a mere week or two! Here are 10 movies you SHOULDN'T watch if you've sent your kids to summer camp. 

What are your favorite summer camp movies?
