Commie Camp

Comedian Katie Halper’s (3rd generation Kinderlander) documentary film about Camp Kinderland has been showing at sold-out screenings at film festivals across the country, and picking up awards and kudos.  Commie Camp–as it is tongue-in-cheek titled—is a loving tribute to Katie’s–and our–favorite “summer camp with a conscience.”

 

Details about upcoming screenings can be found on the film’s website, and any questions regarding the film, screenings, or distribution should be directed to commiecamp@gmail.com.
