It was every kid's dream: go away to camp for the summer with all your friends, and absolutely no supervision. Camp Nowhere showed us what it would be like to be left to your own devices, with the only adult around a weird, in hindsight extremely creepy, former teacher.
The movie focuses on Morris "Mud" Himmel, who dreads being sent to computer camp for another summer. He and his friends come up with the plan to invent fake camps and convince their parents to send them there. They blackmail former teacher Dennis Van Welker, played by Christopher Lloyd, into helping with their scheme, and eventually find themselves at a camp with no adult supervision.
Camp Nowhere came out almost 25 years ago, and it's critically underrated. I remember seeing it for the first time on TV about 10 years after it came out and wondered how I had lived so long without it. So what has happened to the cast all these years later?
Melody Kay as Gaby Nowicki
Gaby was the "lumpy" girl who Mud assured would grow "chests" as she got older. She was sent to Fat Camp by her parents, but ended up at Camp Nowhere with all the others. Kay never had any huge roles, with her most recent credit being "bridesmaid" in a 2004 episode of Yes, Dear. She is now married with two kids.
Marnette Patterson as Trish Prescott
The ditzy blond, who proudly yelled "I'M STUPID, TOO" was Zack's love interest in the film. Since then she's starred in Something So Right, and had recurring roles in Charmed, Movie Stars, and Party of Five. Patterson also appeared in American Sniper with Bradley Cooper.
Hillary Tuck as Betty Stoller
Betty's most memorable scene is when she decided to go skinny dipping in the dirtiest water you've seen in your life. Tuck had a pretty solid run as Amy Szalinski on the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids TV show. After that, she never really found a steady role again. Tuck has still acted regularly, however, with numerous guest spots on shows like The Mentalist, Bones, and Necessary Roughness.
Nathan Cavaleri as Steve
Steve loved his guitar more than anything, and he constantly wanted to play it. Cavaleri wasn't much different, as he was a guitar prodigy who actually toured with BB King in his teens! Now, he's the lead guitarist for the band Nat Col and The Kings.
Even those these actors are relatively nameless, there's a couple others that you might recognize.
