Family Camp delivered $887,000 at the box office over the weekend, according to The Numbers website, putting it in 11th place overall from Friday through Sunday. That is a two spot fall from a week ago, while the revenue is down 37%, which is still better than the normal financial drop off from opening weekend; that is no doubt largely thanks to a 24% increase in the movie's theater count: up from 854 to 1,057 over the same period.


The film stars The Skit Guys, a Christian comedy team comprised of Eddie James and Tommy Woodard, as two fathers leading their families in a weeklong getaway at church camp. The rest of the cast includes Leigh-Allyn Baker and a number of good Christian actors - Robert Amaya, Mark Christopher Lawrence and Gigi Orsillo.


This is the first feature from K-LOVE Films, an arm of the company behind the national Christian radio network K-LOVE, and they partnered on this picture with prominent faith-based studio Provident Films and distributor Roadside Attractions, another regular player in the Christian genre.
