Daria (voice of Tracy Grandstaff) and Quinn (voice of Wendy Hoopes) attend an excruciating summer-camp reunion while Jane (voice of Wendy Hoopes) and Trent (voice of Alvaro J. Gonzalez) get in touch with their country side in this episode of the animated MTV series Daria. When Camp Grizzly, site of many a miserable childhood summer for Daria, announces it's having an alumni get-together, Helen (voice of Wendy Hoopes) forces the reluctant teen to attend. Quinn, who was just as popular as a child as now, can't wait to meet up with the proto-Fashion Club friends she remembers; as for Daria, her only solace is that Trent and Jane are providing the transportation. While Quinn reconnects and Daria fumes, the Lane siblings embark on a quest to reignite Trent's creativity by fraternizing with the common backwoods folk. Deprived of Jane's company, Daria must hang out with Amelia, a wannabe-Daria who was her Camp Grizzly sidekick back in the day. Amelia's fawning attempts to ape Daria's every posture lead the sarcastic teen to lash out, hurting Amelia's feelings. But it's Amelia who provides the day's only triumph when, citing Daria as her tell-it-like-it-is influence, she loudly and publicly tells off Skip, the camp-obsessed lout who's been lording over the other kids since they were kindergartners. Two prominent Daria fans, Erin Mills and Michelle Klein-Häss, served as the models for some of the animated denizens of Camp Grizzly.
