10 Fictional Summer Camps We Wish We Could Go To

Camp North Star, Meatballs (1979)

Bill Murray, playing Tripper, “the head counselor who knows the facts of life,” befriends nerdy camper Rudy, who convinces him to go for hot lady counselor Roxane. It’s a raunchy, goofy romp (and a young, bizarre Bill Murray) that makes us dream of practical jokes and camp rivalries.

How to approximate the experience: Make friends with someone you wouldn’t normally hang out with and immediately take any advice they give you about your love life.
