Welcome to camp! Color War, the most anticipated tradition of the summer, is in full swing. When big man on campus, Scott, is chosen to be General and lead his team, he realizes that there’s a lot to learn about what it takes to be a good leader, boyfriend, brother, and friend. But don't just sit idly by while the events of these five days of sports, races, games, and theatrics ensue! Cheer, sing-a-long and root for your favorite team as the excitement and hilarity of the last days of camp unfold in this nostalgic, coming of age story.
