@campbusiness @Kanakuk Agree, agree, agree wholeheartedly with Rick Braschler’s sentiment—we must keep the “camp” in camp!

I just read the Jan/Feb issue cover to cover. It’s really terrific. Useful stories, photos that tell stories, and a great cover.

@coryharrison I’m against technology. The kids need a break and independence from parents. Technology would just be a crutch.

A Little Film With A Big Vision

Many films rely on big-name talent and innovative special effects to sell them, but Yellow Day is an original movie unlike any other. Through telling the true, inspirational stories of those with special needs, disabilities, and the remarkable people who serve them, the movie promotes the positive, changing power of camp.

The charming romantic comedy that is part quest and part fairy-tale follows one man’s search for a lost love, and his incredible journey to find himself through the power of camp.

Equally interesting is Yellow Day’s principle setting, Camp Grace in Mobile, Ala. In the film and in real life, Camp Grace hosts outreach programs throughout the year. Yellow Day not only features the visual marvels of the camp, but also its actual campers and counselors.

Yellow Day encourages the foundational attributes of service and virtue, educates the public on the transformational impact of camp, and illustrates the realistic idea of overcoming all odds. In this way, Yellow Day is not simply a fun film, but also an educational tool.

Whether it’s for a movie night, a camp resource, or for classroom discussion, Yellow Day is sure to entertain, educate, and inspire.
