Ian Giatti stars in this half-hour précis of the horrors of summer camp. He's a tenderfoot at the kind of gross lakeside hierarchy where campers brag not about their canoeing prowess, but about the things they're really proud of. like: "I can hock a loogie eight feet in the air and catch it on my tongue." The comedy special has an attractive adolescent cast, especially Teri Johnston as a brushback baseball pitcher. Yet the plot seems unshaped and curiously incomplete. It's certainly out of season.
