In this sequel to "Daddy Day Care" dads Charlie Hinton and Phil Ryerson take over running a summer day camp. Armed with no knowledge of the great outdoors, a dilapidated facility, and a motley group of campers, it doesn't take long before things get out of control. Up against threats of foreclosure and declining enrollment, Charlie is forced to call on his estranged father, Col. Buck Hinton to help bring the camp together and teach everyone about teamwork, perseverance and the power of forgiveness.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even the film stock's colour tint looks cheap and nasty. Don't say we didn't warn you."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The juvenile actors come off as movie brats, and the pacing is slowed by treacly speeches about father-son bonding. As a child star on The Wonder Years, director Fred Savage worked with some of TV's best, but you'd never guess it from this."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"If they decide to make Daddy Day Spa with Martin Lawrence and Jim Belushi, I don't want to hear about it."
‑ Jay Stone,
"While the actors in Daddy Day Camp may be different, the tired and predictable storyline full of jokes involving urinating, flatulence, burping, vomiting and crotch shots remains the same."
‑ Adam Tobias, Watertown Daily Times
"Parents! Hire a bouncy castle. Put on clown paint and make balloon animals. You need not see this."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
"Just horrible."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Because he's an Oscar winner with a rep now for headlining turkeys, watching Cuba Gooding Jr. in trash like Daddy Day Camp almost hurts."
‑ Gregory Kirschling, Entertainment Weekly
"Daddy Day Camp truly is a horrific mess. It's not really a movie for kids; it's a movie for kids by adults who don't have the slightest idea what makes a quality film for any audience ... puerile doesn't even begin to do it justice."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"I can't think of a single kind word to say about this unfortunate family comedy which is unoriginal, predictable, schmaltzy and bland."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"An unnecessary and unlovable sequel to the Eddie Murphy vehicle Daddy Day Care, though this time the producers have traded down to Cuba Gooding Jr. Not recommended."
‑ Robert Hanks, Independent
"A generic time-waster powered by a lazy, cynical combination of scatological kiddie humor and maudlin sentiment."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"There's no point being highbrow about a film that relies on the typical fart-puke-nuts-kaboom brand of family comedy, but [director] Savage's lethargic, impersonal approach can't even make Camp's gross-out moments appropriately revolting."
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"It all comes down to the "Olympiad," a battle of idiotic proportions between the two camps, and if you can't guess what happens next, this just may be the movie for you."
‑ Brooke Holgerson, Boston Phoenix
"Forgettable camp comedy is fine for kiddie laughs."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"Criminally lazy follow-up to the syrupy family comedy Daddy Day Care."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
