  • In putting together a play for the Camp's Food Follies, the campers incidentally get senior citizens from the nearby senior center involved with the play's production.

    It's good to see the campers interact with senior citizens, although, Domingo, in particular , has a problem with it at first.

    This episode is interesting because, in putting on a play, the campers in effect must "act" like they are "acting". And they manage to pull it off.

    It's a touching scene, also, when old man Charlie (who demonstrates as much disdain for young people as Domingo has for seniors) is able to reconcile and teach Domingo some carpentry work. Domingo gives up his leftover peach, from the camp lunch, so that Charlie can have some dessert with his ketchup "budget-stretcher-special" soup.

    Senior citizen Danny goes about the whole episode like a vaudeville holdover, injecting energy and verve into everyone. He teaches the kids how to hawk fruit like a true vendor.

    Within their performance, the campers sing out the "HIGH FEATHER" theme song. There is a sort of closure to it all.

    Especially when the kids donate half of their winnings to the senior center's lunch program ( the other half going to a needy Korean village ). We see the campers for one last time , all on stage, to accept their applause.

    Did they know this was to be the final episode ? Who knows. But one thing's for sure in that it will always be nostalgic because it was the FINAL one.

    Wish there could've been another season, or more episodes.
