The eight-part series will follow 16 adults who compete in games inspired by camp, ending with an Olympic style event, “Campathalon.”

Fly on the Wall Entertainment has been tapped to produce Summer Camp, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

“This series marries a fun, energizing and nostalgic concept with quirky characters, who will captivate our viewers, as they attempt to reclaim – or perhaps reinvent – their youth,” said Heather Olander, SVP of alternative programming for USA Network, in a statement. “Our audience will be transported back to some of their best summer moments.”
