Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this camp-set Scooby movie has more than one scary monster to go around: There are three ghastly apparitions with gnarled faces and gnashing teeth (one of whom is an ax-wielding maniac). Very young or sensitive kids might be spooked by the baddies' aggressive behavior, though older viewers will know that there will be an inevitable unmasking. Also expect some flirting and brief kissing.
The buxom camp counsellor from the Big Moose Camp wears a skimpy bikini, which gets Fred's attention. Flirting and brief kissing among the teens.
Any movie that features an ax-wielding maniac is bound to have a few scary moments. Not only is the ax brandished threateningly, but the monsters' scary faces might give little ones the creeps. Also perilous falls over cliffs, explosions, and some gunfire.
Fred's loyalty to his humble camp is admirable, but the greed that motivates the "bad guy" is destructive in the extreme. Good teamwork is on display, and the movie encourages "old fashioned" outdoor play.

Deacon uses his asthma inhaler very frequently -- almost to the point of distraction. It's supposed to be a joke, since he's such an unhealthy kid, but it raises questions about whether that's appropriate material for humor.
