Camp Camp is an ongoing American Rooster Teeth 2D Animated comedy cartoon web series created by and from Rooster Teeth Productions' Jordan Cwierz and Miles Luna. Its first episode, "Escape from Camp Campbell", premiered on June 10th, 2016 on the Rooster Teeth website as part of their "Summer of Animation". It is about the exploits of a group of campers and their counselors during their stay at the horribly run-down Camp Campbell. It also primarily focuses on a young boy named Max who is forced to go to summer camp but makes two friends there who help him constantly torment their camp counselor, David. The show was first announced on April 1st, 2016 alongside the premiere of RWBY Chibi and the fourteenth season of Red vs. Blue. The first season originally consisted of 10 episodes. Two more episodes were ordered for the first season for a total of 12, due to positive reception. Typical episode running time varies from eight to twelve minutes.
Season 2 was announced on January 23rd, 2017 set to premiere on June 9th of 2017, almost one year after the first season debut.
The first episode aired for sponsors on June 10th, 2016. There are also a couple of trailers and a faux-advertising reel for the camp. The second season of Camp Camp was announced in February 2017 alongside the premiere of Day 5. The trailer premiered on May 25th, 2015 with the first episode of the second season premiering on June 9th, 2017.
The series is created by Jordan Cwierz, Miles Luna and is written by Kerry Shawcross, Gray Haddock and the former; it is directed by Jordan Cwierz. It stars Michael Jones as the voice of Max, Miles Luna as David, Elizabeth Maxwell as Nikki, Yuri Lowenthal as Neil and Lee Eddy as the voice of Gwen.
Because this is a 2D animated web series created by Rooster Teeth and includes a large number of the RT animation/production staff and crew who previously made X-Ray and Vav, it has essentially replaced X-Ray and Vav, which was cancelled after Ray Narvaez, Jr. was disinterested in reprising his main character for the third season. In addition to Ray stating that he would not reprise his role, Season 2 had a satisfactory ending, which led the Rooster Teeth X-Ray and Vav production staff to abandon work on the project, having shifted their focus to the "Summer of Animation" as top priority (RWBY Chibi, Red vs Blue Season 14, Camp Camp and RWBY Volume 4).
|“||Camp Camp tells the story of Max, a jaded ten year old, who finds himself stuck at a dysfunctional summer camp run by a shady business mogul who is looking to turn a profit any way he can. The cynical Max will have to survive annoyingly cheerful counselor David, the weird cast of campers, and bizarre surprises at every turn before he can escape for home.||”|

- Main article: List of Camp Camp ending themes
- The show has a handful of running gags. Such includes:
- David getting injured in the most outrageous of ways, such as getting hit by a bus numerous times or being set on fire a couple of times. He also screams in a girly manner as he's harmed.
- People forgetting Gwen's name and instead calling her other names that start with the letter "G".
- Thunder and lightning crashing down from the sky every time a character mentions Spooky Island.
- Nikki stating the word for the said onomatopoeia instead of expressing it.
- An example of this is when she says "bark bark bark" instead of actually barking and says "Gasp!" instead of actually gasping in "Reigny Day".
- Tabii repeatedly mentioning that her name has two "I"s. This becomes ironic after she loses her left eye in "Bonjour Bonquisha".
- Campers appearing behind either of the counselors' legs out of thin air.
- As of January 3, 2018, figurines of the main Camp Camp characters have been announced to the public and went on sale in the Rooster Teeth online store that same month.
- Some of the other Camp Camp merchandise that can be found on the Rooster Teeth store are the Platypus plushie and patches with the activities listed in the Camp Camp Song Song.
- Gray Haddock stated that Rooster Teeth will release a Blu-Ray for the first two seasons, featuring commentary tracks for all episodes and the unreleased Camp Camp pilot. Jordan later confirmed the box set would be available for sale on May 22, 2018.
- Camp Camp has also been referenced in several other Rooster Teeth media, such as RWBY Chibi.
- In the episode, "The Vacuum", Ruby is seen reading a Camp Camp comic book with the show's promotional poster as the cover. Later in the episode, Jaune hums the theme song as he walks across Ruby's cape with his muddy shoes.
- In the episode, "Movie Night", one of the posters showing the premieres of the new movies include a movie of what seems to be the chibi version of Camp Camp, called "Chibi Chibi". With Nikki, Neil and Max on the said poster.
- In the episode "Road Trip", Jaune Arc starts singing the theme song in order to stop Cinder from kidnapping him and Ren.
- In order to celebrate the premiere of Season 3, the crew asked fans to send in their covers of the theme song, which Rooster Teeth later uploaded onto their YouTube channel.
