What Have The Kids Been Up To Since Leaving "Camp Nowhere?"

- Page 1

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

Hollywood Pictures/IMDb

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

Hollywood Pictures/Wikipedia

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

Hollywood Pictures/Fan Pix

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

Hollywood Pictures/Scott Barber

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.

Macaulay Culkin Opens Up About 'Home Alone' And 'My Girl' In New Interview With Ellen

Macaulay Culkin was one of the biggest stars of the 90s. He was in so many of our childhood favorites including both of the Home Alone movies, My Girl, and Richie Rich. His ability to act so well at such a young age gave him an advantage over a lot of the other child stars at the time, and by the time he was a teenager he had been in over a dozen movies. It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a


Shelley Duval Says That Robin Williams Is Alive And She Knows Where He Is

Robin Williams was one of our generations finest actors. He was a comedic genius with a mind that was constantly running a mile a minute. He was more clever than any of us could ever hope to be, and we were lucky to have had him for the short time we did. While he passed away too young, Williams made a lot of amazing hit movies. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Good Will Hunting all proved he was capable at making entertaining content that we all loved. But his first big staring role in a motion picture was actually

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
