Scooby Doo! Camp Scare,
is where Scooby and gang and campfire legends come face to face in one of the most dangerous mysteries yet. Fred wants to re-live his childhood memories at summer camp.

Scooby Doo! Camp Scare, is a mystery of no less than five campfire legends. It is likely one of the most dangerous Scooby movies made with wanton destruction and numerous acts of attempted murder. More chase and action than mystery solving, it is a different take on Scooby Doo stories. I think it’s an under-appreciated and overlooked movie of Scooby Doo direct to video collection.
