Slice taking Canadian viewers back to Summer Camp

SummerCampSlice is taking viewers back to summer camp with an all new series from the creators of Big Brother.

Summer Camp sees 16 contenders head back to camp to compete in a battle of the sexes with one side emerging as winners of the $250,000 to be split between the team.

While bunking at a beautiful lakeside retreat in California, the girls’ camp and the guys’ camp will compete in contests inspired by classic camp games. Each week the losing team will have to banish two of their teammates to the opposing camp, while the winning team will decide which of the two banished campers will have to leave summer camp for good.

At the end of the summer, the remaining campers will contend in the Campathalon, an Olympic style final face off. The winning camp will receive a $250,000 cash prize to be split among the remaining contenders.
