Synopsis

Back for another exciting summer at the sometimes-struggling Camp Kikiwaka in rural Maine are the enthusiastic camp owner/director Lou, counselors Ava and Noah, and returning campers Destiny, Matteo and Finn, who are all ready to tackle new and hilarious adventures. As the new camp season begins, they are thrilled to welcome former counselor-turned-fashion-designer Emma Ross, who pays a surprise visit to her old stomping grounds. They also welcome witty and charming Parker Preston, who arrives to stake his 15% claim to the camp and brings his own over-the-top ideas that don’t necessarily mesh with Lou’s, much to her consternation. Meanwhile, Destiny takes on more responsibilities while she pursues her newly discovered passion for protecting the environment. Matteo impresses his fellow campers with his professor-level scientific expertise and Finn continues to charge fearlessly into adventures. Although Ava and Noah have gained confidence in their second year as counselors, Lou soon presents them with a daunting challenge: supervising the new “PeeWeeWaka” day campers, a fast-moving pack of energetic eight-year-olds who always keep them on their toes
