Scaredy Camp: A Nickelodeon Classic

The Horror Equity Fund

“Scaredy Camp? What show was that?” is the usual response I get from people when I mention the show. The show constantly has been stuck in my head ever since I saw it for the first time in 2002. I remember watching it as this one kid took a boat out in a lake at night and had to find clues.


If you don’t know what I’m talking about, the plot of the show was a reality-based show where children were put on teams (of course, it’s boys vs girls) at Camp Lindenwood. The teams had to figure out a mystery of missing camper, Dennis Williams and look into the urban legends that haunted the camp.

Season one ran from October 27, 2002  to November 3, 2002. Season two ran from August 2, 2003 to August 16, 2003 – both seasons were featured on Nickelodeon


The show was very ’00s. But even just the kids talking about creepy stuff gave me chills. I don’t know about you but I would have been terrified going on this show. As seen above, in one episode the teams were blindfolded and taken to a secret location at night and left out there to figure out the mystery. 

Scaredy Camp is now in session!
