Camp Cariboo (Series) (1986-1989)

Camp Cariboo
As the title suggests, an attempt is made to bring all the fun of summer camp to television. Knowing that children of this age group are attuned to fast-paced action, the pace is moderated by the recognition that young viewers want to interact directly with the programming they watch. To that end, the show is set in an idyllic camp setting where there is always lots to do, plenty of friends to share in the action, and where the moments are anything but dull.

Counsellor/hosts Tom and Mark lead the kids through a variety of activities, from sing-along songs in the recreation hall to tips on tying the world's longest knot at dockside. Disguised as the Keeners, Mark and Tom play the part of madcap campers who offer viewers pointers on outdoor living. And Uncle Wes (alias Tom) provides his own zany brand of Woodsy Wisdom--and makes a Splash doing it.

How can you NOT like this show?

That show sucked. There's a reason why there's no DVD, and that's because it was a lousy show.

Our public Library used to have a cassette tape about Camp Caribou that we used to borrow whenever we went on a road trip with our four little kids. It was great because they had a lot of short stories and jokes, as well as lots of fun music. We are now planning a road trip with our last two teenagers and it would be so much fun to surprise them with a copy of this tape/cd for the road. But, the Library no longer owns it. Any ideas where we might get it?
