Scooby-Doo and the gang face their most treacherous mystery yet in Scooby Doo: Camp Scare. In this adventure, Mystery Inc. heads over to Fred’s old summer camp, Camp Little Moose, to serve as camp counselors. Fred is more excited than anyone.
After arriving, they meet Burt the head counselor and Forest Ranger Knudsen, who tell then that an axe maniac called the Woodsman haunts the camp. With everyone scared off, Camp Little Moose will have to be closed down. However, Fred convinces Burt to keep the camp open in order for Mystery Inc. to find out what’s going on.
Just then, three campers arrive. They are Luke an enthusiastic young man, Trudy a shy computer genius, and Deacon a kid with asthma. While Fred, Daphne, and Velma do activities with the kids, Shaggy and Scooby prepare supper. I can’t help but feel sorry for Fred because he tries so hard to be a good counselor, but no one takes him seriously.
As it turns out, the Woodsman isn’t the only monster running loose. There’s also a sea creature called the Fish Man, who haunts a lake over at the neighboring camp, Camp Big Moose. The main difference between the two camps is that Camp Big Moose is more refined and Camp Little Moose is run down. Much to Fred’s dismay, the gang goes to Big Moose Lake and has a large time. That is until the Fish Man comes for them.
After escaping, the mystery becomes even stranger when some equipment from Camp Big Moose goes missing, which includes an RV. Velma finds out that it’s in Shadow Canyon, which is haunted by another monster called the Specter of Shadow Canyon. This one is as creepy as a banshee. Now this is the first time Mystery Inc. faces three completely different haunts in one feature.
This was a really adventurous movie. You can only imagine what kind of spooky mysteries Mystery Inc. will encounter next, considering how many they have had over the years.
One last note: I recently met two voice actors from this feature at Anime Festival Orlando 2012, Grey Delisle (Daphne) and Tara Strong (Trudy).
