When their pastor (Mark Christopher Lawrence) encourages the congregation to sign up for a week away at family camp, Grace (Leigh-Allyn Baker) believes she’s found the perfect cure for her imperfect clan—even if they’d all rather be anywhere but at rustic Camp Katokwah. FAMILY CAMP is a laugh-out-loud comedy that is sure to touch the hearts and tickle the funny bones of every family member from eight to eighty.
“For over 20 years, we’ve dreamed about making a comedy feature film,” said Eddie James of The Skit Guys. “Our goal is to always include humor, heart, and Him (God), and we were able to accomplish that in FAMILY CAMP.”
“We believe humor helps break down barriers,” said Tommy Woodard of The Skit Guys. “With our first movie, we hope families will not only laugh together, they will also draw closer to each other … and to God.”
FAMILY CAMP, written by director Brian Cates and Rene Gutteridge, is a faith-based film that the entire family will enjoy. Producing FAMILY CAMP are industry veterans Darren Moorman (BLUE MIRACLE, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME), Trey Reynolds (BLUE MIRACLE), and Justin Tolley (WAR ROOM), along with Jay Howver, The Skit Guys’ Chief Operations Officer.
“I feel like there’s a real hole in the movie world when it comes to family comedies. I mean, this is what used to drive the box office,” said Leigh-Allyn Baker. “People, now more than ever, need to laugh. I’m really glad that people can laugh at this and laugh with us.”

No longer was it just about making
