Campers will pack their bags and head to an idyllic lakeside retreat in Big Bear, California, where they will indulge in over-the-top competitions inspired by classic camp games. At the end of the summer, the remaining competitors face off in the "Campathalon," an ultimate Olympic style event.

An accomplished television talent, Rogers was the former host of GSN's "Beat the Chefs," Discovery Channel's "Really Big Things," CBS's "There Goes the Neighborhood"and Lifetime's "Coming Home," for which he also wrote and performed the theme song titled "I'm Coming Home."
