Today Show: Summer Camp Reality Series Preview
It’s guys versus gals in this throwback to the days of summer camp. Summer Camp is the USA Network’s new reality series hosted by Matt Rogers. He said this gives young adults a chance to come back and experience everything you love about summer camp. There are color wars, hook ups, campfires and more!
Brooke, a camper on the series, said it’s much different from her past camp experiences. She went to an all-girls Christian camp, and Summer Camp made it co-ed and add a little booze to the nightly campfires. Another camper is tough. He killed an alligator in middle school.
The Today Show anchors faced off with the Summer Camp campers in an obstacle course. The first team to complete a potato sack race, put together a puzzle, go between the tires, down a slide, and walk their canoe across the playing field to raise their flag wins.
The Summer Camp pulled threw in the end, but the Today Show cheated and got a win.
