Character breakdown

Evadeen– Adult Female
An awfully crass women who has recently gained control of Camp Killaheffa. She is all about getting rid of the camp her father and daughter love so much. All she wants in life is to work a 9 to 5 desk job.

Fannie Mable– Adult Female
The daughter of Evadeen and the lovingly optimistic camp coordinator. Fannie Mable is eager to start camp this year to carry on her grandfathers legacy, even if that means having to deal with her out of touch mother.

Rita– Adult Female
The camp lunch lady who is all about having a good cigarette. Along with Earnest she is the oldest worker at camp and even attended Camp Killaheffa in its early days. She’s rough and tough and can handle anything the campers can throw at her.

Earnest– Adult Male
A true doomsday prepper with his own bunker on the camp grounds. Earnest is full of camp knowledge but also has a mysterious, if not creepy way about him.

Petey– Young Adult/ Adult Male
The oldest of the camp counselors and honestly, a little too old. Petey is always trying to relive his “glory” days in college. He mainly keeps his camp job to get out of his parents basement. Frat boy in a grown man’s body.

Georgette– Teen/ Young Adult Female
Theater kid turned counselor. She is over the moon about being accepted to the arts counselor position at Camp Killaheffa. She can name 45 musicals in under 30 seconds.

Summer– Teen/ Young Adult Female
A wannabe flower child and instagram powerhouse. She knows way too much about crystals and healing energies. She always has a smudge stick on hand to cleanse the area. Not the sharpest crayon in the box.

Cliff– Teen/ Young Adult Male
It’s his first year as a lifeguard at camp and he couldn’t be more excited. He has been working out and tanning all spring just so he can glow while sitting on post as the camps favorite life saver. A real bro’s bro.

Frankie– Male or Female (10-14)
This summer one parent was a little too eager to get rid of their kid. Frankie has been dropped off at camp a week early and must learn to survive with adults and the worst catastrophe known to a middle schooler… No Wifi!
