  • Bug Juice was a documentary series made for Disney Channel. Camera crews followed two cabins full of middle school aged boys and girls during their time at an overnight summer camp.moreless

    Bug Juice was, as the opening credits said, the true life adventures of kids at summer camp. It was a Disney Channel documentary series that followed two cabins of middle school aged kids, one boys and one girls, throughout a summer at camp.



    Bug Juice was made before reality TV was on every station at every hour of the day. The kids who were focused on were mostly unaffected by the camera crews following them. (That is, until the third season. The show had a slightly different vibe and the kids acted a bit more calculated in their moves.)



    I never went to a summer camp so this show was fascinating to me. It showed the kids experiencing camp fires, arts and crafts cabins, overnight camping adventures, bushwhacking, horseback riding, plays, dances, color wars, bad camp food, homesickness, first kisses, fights, sneaking junk food, and basically just the highs and lows of overnight camps.



    The casting was great. They picked really likable kids to follow around. The counselors were great too. My personal favorites were from season one's Camp Waziyahta: Malik, session one's Andy, Jason, Cammie, Caitlin, Keisha, and the boys' head counselor Rhett. I also loved season two's B session boys: Josh and Stefan, and the boys' counselor Cohen. Disney Channel reran season one a few summers ago. It was a big hit and gained new fans as well as making old fans like me happy to see the show again. I hope Disney will choose to re-air the other seasons again too.moreless
  • Back when reality shows actually consisted of filming "reality" Bug Juice showed the day-to-day lives of kids at camp.

    After watching bug juice I begged my parents to send me to the nearest summer camp! Too bad it wasn't as cool as being on the show, but it was still a good experience. Bug juice lasted three seasons, the norm for Disney shows, which I still don't understand. It featured a different camp each season and filmed the young kids as they went to campfires, took swimming lessons, and created friendships. Once the last season wrapped, they began showing Bug Juice at 11pm the following summer, and of course I had to stay up "late" and watch! Since then, (2002?) they have not shown Bug Juice on the air. I think Disney should create the next season, maybe have Hannah Montana make a guest appearance?moreless

    This show is amazing! I loved the whole summer camp thing. I also love how they dressed in the 90's. The show is so original, no one can beat it. I loved Stephanie and Connor is season one. They are the cutest couple ever! The show is so cute and I've always wanted to go to a summer camp like the ones in the show. It should be brought back or syndicated at least. I have to watch it on You Tube! I understand why they had to cancel it, though. But, this was the original Laguna Beach! Amazing. I love it!moreless
