Happy Campers is a 2001 comedy film from New Line Cinema about college freshmen and summer camp and is directed and written by Heathers writer Daniel Waters.


When the rule-enforcing camp director at Camp Bleeding Dove gets struck by lightning, the counselors find themselves in sole charge of their campers, and themselves. The diverse group of college freshmen counselors create a camp experience that their campers will never forget. They stray from the rules and create a fun, yet crazy and often irresponsible environment. Each counselor, and some of the campers, find themselves maturing in their own way, yet are still able to create an interesting bond with each other that can only happen at summer camp.
