Camp Cucamonga (also titled: How I Spent My Summer and Lights Out) is a made-for-television movie that aired on September 23, 1990 on NBC.[1] The film was a family feature that served mostly as a vehicle to cast a variety of stars from TV shows that were popular at the time.[2]



The backdrop for the film is the title camp, a summer camp where a variety of pre-teens go to do typical camp activities. Amongst the backdrop of this are two sub-plots involving the budding romance between two camp counselors, and a camp inspection gone awry.

The film is also notable for having been an early project in the career of a variety of actors who would go on to be hugely successful, including Jennifer Aniston [3][4] [5] and Breckin Meyer (in a supporting role). It was also the TV comedy acting debut of G. Gordon Liddy.[6] The film was released on DVD in 2004.
