Top 10 Summer Camp Movies for Families

Moonrise Kingdom movie

'Moonrise Kingdom'

Recommended for ages 3 and up; 2012, PG-13

Director Wes Anderson is noted for his quirky, almost surreal style, fully on display in "Moonrise Kingdom." Set in 1963, this sweetly strange film concerns two 12-year-olds who meet the summer of 1963 at summer camp, and make a pact to run away together.

Aside from the animated "Fantastic Mr. Fox," this is probably Anderson's most family-friendly film; although it feels strange to write that sentence because his films are so hard to classify. Kids should enjoy the portrayal of the paramilitary khaki scouts. There is some sexual content although it's very mild.
