wondering who we are, but have no fear. I — – David, what the fuck
are you doing? – I am not David! …though…if he were here
he’d tell you to mind your language. I am chief Squatting Bear. – Oohhh that’s awesome. – Gwen, why is David
dressed like a turkey? – because he’s fucking David, Nikki. you’ve been here long enough
to figure that out. – Gwen! Don’t break character! And I’m not a turkey.
I’m an indian chief. – Like Max?
– What? Uh — No! Like the Cherokees! You know, WOWOWOWOWOWOL! – Wow, that is racist. – Seriously. Are you offended? – Silence! Do your thing. Uh…right. We represent the
Order of the Sparrow. A secret society
that gathers only to honor the most
worthy of campers. – So then what are
you doing *here*? – [Sighs] Look, guys, the order’s been around
since I was a camper. It’s a huge honor!
And it’s really cool! – I’ll believe that when I see it. – Oh you will, Max, because today you will all be given
the chance to prove your worth. (whining):
– Do we have to? – No, but — WAIT! Nevermind!
It’s mandatory! [all sighing] but, those of you who are
accepted into the Order will receive the
ultimate prize. – Huh? There’s a prize? – What is it! – Tell us now, turkey-man! – Yeah. Wait what prize? – All will be revealed at the
setting of the sun, sister Gwen. So, shall we begin? ALL:
Yeah! MAX:
Well this is stupid. NEIL:
Seriously. “Do good every day?” that’s just bad grammar. I think it’s “Do good”
like a superhero. – I could be the hero
this camp deserves. – I can be nice! I’m the nicest! – Great! Because you all have
until sundown to convince me. – David! You know me!
You know I love nature! You know if I could I would
have BABIES with nature. So do I get my prize now? – Calm down, Nikki – Aaah!
– Step off! May I help you up, David? – Nurf! That was —
– A very kind gesture, I know. So can my prize be cigarettes? – You sure this will work? – Uh…yes! – Harrison! – Oh, Nerris, you clumsy fool! Never fear.
I shall save you out of the kindness
of my gold heart. – …Gwen! – David, please. Allow me to assist you with
the consumption of your sandwich. There we are.
All chewed up for you! – Um… – Here comes the zeppelin! – Gah!! [yelling] – Resistance is futile,
turkey-man! – What in the — Hey, David. Like what I’ve done
with the place? – Wh-What did you do
to the camp! – I cleaned it! The floors were
covered in dirt! – That’s because
it’s the forest! – I know! I really did
some good today. So for my prize, I was
thinking of a Broadway deal. – Preston, put it all back now!
Please! – But —
– I’m on it! [truck reversing]
beep…beep…beep… [hydraulics hissing] – Agh! – Uh, I’ll take my
hover boots now. NEIL:
David, witness me. Witness my love for nature. *muack* – Ow! You whore! Let me love you!
Goddamnit! MAX:
This doesn’t count, David. They don’t ACTUALLY care. – W-w-what do you mean! Of course they do!
Look at ’em! No. They’re just doing all of this
because they think they’ll get something awesome – A little motivation never hurt anyone. – Until they find out
there IS no prize. – Of course there’s a prize!
It’s a great prize! – Money?
– No! A new pony? A motorcycle?
An electron microscope! – No! It’s better than all of that! It’s symbolic and beautiful! Is it “a job well-done?” Because that’s a fucking
cop-out, David! – IT’S A BONFIRE. ALL:
What??! – What? – A bonfire! – …a bonfire. – Yes! It’s the highest honor. The fire is lit with a
flaming arrow signifying the — – Wait. We don’t actually
get anything? – I mean…of course you do! Everyone gets their own sash.
Like this! – But it’s so ugly! – W-well…
– David, is this seriously it? – Yeah, David. – Okay. You guys
just aren’t seeing it. I’m telling you.
This is amazing. The big fire, there’s music,
a ceremony, oh! And the passing of the staff! The chief chooses a new member
to carry his staff and lead the new
generation of sparrows! – So, one of us
gets a stick? – IT’S AN ANCIENT STAFF. QUARTERMASTER:
Welp, this is a trainwreck. – No wait, I’ll show you! Let me just get it lit. [thunder] – David, let it go. – No, no, no! I can still light it!
You’ll see! – I can’t believe I frenched
a platypus for this – Come on, kids. Guys, wait! I-I’ve almost got it,
I’m sure! [grunts] – Well, David, you were right.
This IS amazing. – If I could just show you… – Do you really think a big campfire
and some outdated… honestly, kind of racist tradition is going to make anyone
care about anything? No one gives a shit, David. Nobody want to be here. [grunting intensifies] God. It’s like you live in
this stupid make-believe world where “everything’s great!” The universe doesn’t
work that way, idiot Just look around! It’s what I’ve been trying
to show you since day one. Life sucks. And we live in a world of
desensitized, apathetic assholes. Why don’t you just
get with the program and stop giving a shit? – You’re right. – What? – Times have changed. Whether I like it or not. The campers don’t care, Gwen doesn’t care, even the founder of this place
has better things to do. That’s why I’ll never
stop trying. Because somebody
fucking has to. [thunder] – David…
– Go back to your tent, Max…. You’ll just catch a cold. Oh, give me a break! – David! – Huh? – Campe Diem,
brother David. – Oh my gosh.
You all look perfect! – And it’s all thanks to
your guidance, David. – Let us rejoice. – David, I am the spirit of
the Order of the Sparrow. Thank you for showing the children
the joy of camping, nature and life. Also, hey! I’m your real father. – Oh thank you, spirit! This is all just so incredible!
I feel like I’m dreaming! – That’s because you are, idiot. – What? GWEN:
David. David? David, can you hear me? – Gwen? Aah! NIKKI:
Wake up, buttercup! – Nikki, no more arrows! – You can’t control me, white devil! WOWOWOWOWOWOL! – You’re all dressed up as… – Indians. Just like you said! – We designed the outfits
ourselves. – Do you love them?
I LOVE THEM! – But, why? – Alright, I fixed it.
Everybody hurry up and… ah, shit. He’s awake. – Max?
Did you — – DO NOT LOOK TOO DEEPLY INTO THIS. You suck, this world sucks, and one day we’re all gonna die
and none of it will matter, but if we didn’t do this, I’m pretty sure you’d kill
yourself or something. – [sniffles] Oh, Max! – Or shoot up the camp.
I don’t know. It was a possibility. – Thank you. – Whatever. Just take
your stupid stick. SPACE KID:

  1. In this episode you can really tell what kind of upbringing Max had. He punches down on David because he’s got all this anger towards his parents and he hates the way David is filled with such positivity, something max hasn’t been able to have. What he says to David is something that I think he must of heard from his parents a lot. But when David gets upset and talks back max realised what he’s doing. He isn’t expecting what he says to actually affect David. He just wants to be angry at someone but I think in that moment he realised that what he said was like really… mean? And that’s why he tries to do the ceremony for him. Cus he doesn’t want to be that person, Cus he doesn’t want to be like his parents.

    Might be projecting or whatever but that’s how I interpreted it.

  2. I know why max has a pessimist view on life, season 2 episode 12 it is released that his parents don’t care about him and it’s insinuated that his parents are neglectful.

  3. I like the character development in max. He use to be so sarcastic and rude. Even though he still is he is atleast showing affection towards things like in this episode he learned from David and got everyone together to cheer David up. I love that!

  4. GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUYS should I be applauding David for swearing?? Yeah I shouldn't. But I am. I'm the worst.

  5. This is one of my absolute favorite episodes from Camp Camp. It shows where David talks about how hes not as stupid as everyone thinks he is. He's not small minded or anything. On the outside David is a smiling go getter while on the inside, hes breaking and he doesn't want anyone to see that so they would start breaking. I like how max finally understood that. How this small 1 minute and 30 seconds of a whole show shows how powerful the whole scene can be. But I like that about him. He's not as dumb as people say he is. He's just as vulnerable as everyone else in the world. Campe Diem campers. 🌲

  6. When david snaps iut at max and screams "ITS A BONFIRE", you can here him starting to break…and yes, that made me tear up. 5:30

  7. This is definitely my favourite episode, you get to see the side of Max and David you normally don’t see 😀

  8. The sort of heartfelt way Max says "What?" at 7:35 just shatters my heart, and then David breaks the universe at 7:54, omg then at 8:25, when he yells "David!" I really love how these characters at first were portrayed as just a kid, and a camp counselor who the kid hates, but in this episode we really see how much their relationship had developed. I really love this episode, and Parents Day, just because they show how much these two have grown as characters.

  9. Idk if it's just me but I feel extremely bad for David and wanna hug him so tight 😔😭
    David curses 5 seconds later

    Woah woah there buddy you got to much dip on ya chip

  10. "Because somebody fucken has too."
    Thats when I fell in love with camp camp reminds me of red vs blue just not stretched out to 17 seasons

  11. 7:32 the moment i gained respect for David to the point where i actually changed irl. no joke. this is good writing.

  12. Was I seriously the only one who almost cried when David started desperately trying to light the bonfire with tears in his eyes? Max, I love you, BUT LEAVE HIM ALONE YOU BRAT.

  13. Max calls it racist because he’s an Indian and the counselors are pretending to be Indians. You probably knew but, meh.

  14. you can tell max lowkey cares about david like when he understood he made him sad we kinda regret what he said, and when the logs fell on him.
