Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

In this standard, serious film about why teenagers or pre-teens go wrong and what can be done to help them, immoral or corrupt parents are as much at fault as the teens themselves. An idealistic camp counselor takes on several of the kids who want to be helped and installs them at his sports camp in the wilderness, generally bending to the teens' wishes whenever possible. At first his liberal-minded attitude backfires because the kids continue their antisocial behavior either out of habit, or just to spite him. Eventually, when the counselor is about to call it quits, the teens rally around him because whether he was aware of it or not, his own decent behavior was having an effect right along.
