USA Network is ready to take viewers back to carefree days of summer.
The cable network has given the greenlight to "Summer Camp," a new reality series from "Big Brother" producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan. Premiering (appropriately enough) this summer, the eight episode series will send die-hard campers back to relive the nostalgic memories of their youth, as they compete in competitions inspired by classic summer camp games.
Sixteen adults will start the season off, from a fanatic hunter to a former nerd turned supermodel to a vegan yoga instructor, each picked off one by one until those remaining at the end of the summer face off in the Olympic-style "Campathalon."
"This series marries a fun, energizing and nostalgic concept with quirky characters, who will captivate our viewers, as they attempt to reclaim – or perhaps reinvent – their youth," said Heather Olander, senior vp alternative programming for USA Network. "Our audience will be transported back to some of their best summer moments. We are excited to chronicle this adventure with Fly on the Wall Entertainment, one of the leading storytellers in this genre."
"Summer Camp" joins a slate of new reality series debuting on the network, including Kurt Warner's "The Moment" and "Bride or Best Man."
