It’s been a bumpy start, but campers Bill, Winnie and Jake have loved their time at summer camp. In addition to perfecting his cowboy skills, Bill is discovering his fellow campers may be just as fun to hang out with as herding cattle. Winnie is learning to reign in her thrill-seeking needs, and Jake is realizing how exciting real-life can be away from video games. Meanwhile, counselors and campers band together to hunt for a mysterious treasure that is said to be hidden somewhere on the ranch.
“BUNK’D” is executive produced by Dunlap, May, David Booth, Valerie Ahern and Eric Schaar and was created by Pamela Eells O’Connell. Jason Shubb serves as producer. The series carries a TV-G parental guideline.
