She barely has the skills to unzip a sleeping bag, let alone lead young campers through any outdoor adventures, but with a little help from new friends, and some insect repellent, she might be able to pull it off." Dan Staley also serve as an executive producer on the project, due to film in September. (Deadline.com)
