LOS ANGELES, CA- Friday April 19, 2013.Having recently topped $100K in box office revenues, independent feature,CAMP continues its momentum and opens in Cleveland April 19th.
CAMP is the latest film from Jacob Roebuck. Inspired by true stories, we meet Ken Matthews (Michael Mattera), a hot shot investment banker doing whatever it takes to make a good impression on a wealthy client, including becoming a camp counselor. Ken is partnered with Eli (Miles Eliot, The Amazing Spiderman), a kid thrown away by his parents and living in foster care, for a week he won't soon forget.
Cleveland native, Asante Jones (Harry’s Law, Dexter) plays Ken’s cabin mate, Samuel. The veteran camp counselor shows Ken how to best connect with young Eli. “I’m very proud of our ‘little’ film and my contribution to the final product. It means the world to me to be able to return to my hometown for these premier screenings,” said Jones who will be attending the evening screenings on the 19and 20.
The film centers around issues of foster and adoptive care and has partnered with Royal Family Kids to have a portion of proceeds directly help their local camps where the film is shown. Thus far the contribution to regional RFK Camps has exceeded $20K.

About Royal Family Kids
Royal Family Kids, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is the nation’s leading network of camps for abused, neglected and abandoned children. By mobilizing local churches to sponsor a one-week camp for abused and neglected children, ages 7-11 in their local community, RFK gets caring adults involved in the lives of children who need them most. Each camp has two very simple goals: make positive childhood memories for the kids and let them experience unconditional love from an adult. Many volunteers who go to camp are inspired to become mentors, become foster parents and even adopt children who need a loving, caring family. The RFK Camps were founded by Wayne and Diane Tesch in 1988. For more information, please visit their website http://RoyalFamilyKids.org
