12 Ways Your Summer Camp Was Nothing Like 'Camp Rock'

And one way it totally was.

Ah, summer camp. The glorious memories of campfires, lakes and watching the Jonas Brothers perform live before one of them joins you as a fellow camper. Well, maybe not the last one.

Unless you were lucky enough to attend a real-life "Camp Rock," odds are your summer camp was nothing like the Disney Channel flick. As much as it hurts our hearts to say it, here are all the reasons why we weren't living in a rock-and-roll wonderland every summer.

  1. First of all, the Jonas Brothers weren’t there.

  12. There was no life-defining musical moment.

BUT there's one way it was totally the same: you made friends for life.

And that's the best part.
