Movie showing tells story of hope

The University’s Student Activities Committee has a limited number of tickets to a showing of “The Camp,” a movie produced by Roebuck Media.

The showing will be Friday, April 12 at 9:20 p.m. at Siloam Springs 6. Tickets are $2 and SAC will also be providing a coupon for $1.75 popcorn as well.

The dramatic film tells the story of a camp for foster kids, and follows an investment banker who grudgingly volunteered at the camp while trying to impress a client. It is a story of hope in unexpected places.

The movie is written and directed by Jacob Roebuck (‘97).

Current students senior Joshua Kimmis and sophomore Kaitlyn Thompson worked on the film. Alumni Jesse (‘12) and Jonathan (‘11) Daniels, Chrissy Shroenock (‘12), Mark Jackson (‘90), and Joel Rorabaugh (‘98) also worked with Roebuck.

The money raised from the film’s showings is destined to help Royal Family Kid’s Camps around the country. There is no Camp in the Siloam Springs area, but Roebuck hopes the movie will spur someone towards beginning one.
