Camping 't Pontje (for observant kids)

'Camping 't Pontje' is a quirky series about the very mundane camping adventures of 11 characters. With whimsical simplicity the show depicts the humorous mishaps that are inevitable with many people sharing a small piece of land.

Every weekend 11 ordinary people hop on a packed ferry to visit their favorite campsite, located on a teeny-tiny island in the Dutch Waddensea. Amenities on the island are very limited, and the personalites of the people very diverse... so they'll have to improvise to work things out together. Not a day goes by on 'Camping 't Pontje’ without annoyances, but certainly not without fun either!
