Are you ready for camp? Yea! I’m not doing the camp thing this year. I love nature and all, but the mosquitoes, sleeping on the hard ground, and the blistering hot black marshmallows are going to have to wait another year. Instead, I am getting my camp fix by tuning into the upcoming Netflix original series Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp. The best summer of your life starts July 31 at 12:01am PT only on Netflix. The cast is absolutely amazing, including incredible stars like Molly Shannon and Bradley Cooper! Check it out!
