Hosts Luke and Wyatt return with host four teams chosen from Australia and New Zealand. Camp Orange has always struck me as particularly Anglo in its casting at a time when our households are brimming with diverse kids, but Nickelodeon advises me this year’s participants include South African, Maltese and Maori heritage.
The Bob Shermans (NZ) The Nick Jaggers (QLD) The BubbleGum Besties (NSW) and The Random Penguins (VIC) through a sea of super soaked adrenaline surging challenges. Proving they’ve got guts (and possibly gills), our Campers will brave depths, speeds, heights and marine creatures as they play for money-can’t-buy rewards, such as a starring role in SpongeBob ParadePants – the world’s very first SpongeBob parade performed daily at Sea World. Contestants are also vying for the ultimate title of Champ Orange, awarded to the team that best displays the Camp Orange spirit of friendship and fair play.
For the first time in Camp Orange history, Champ Orange will be decided by Aussie and Kiwi kids who are watching all the action at home. This year, viewers will choose the team that they deem best and fairest to take the honour by casting their vote on www.nickelodeon.com.au. In another Camp Orange first, fans have submitted their recipes in for Wrong Town Dinner, stomach churning dishes which are eaten each night at Camp Fire by a team selected by the Wrong Town Dinner Spinner. Kids at home can also check out behind the scenes and other exclusive added content online, including the very best audition videos.
In the world premiere episode, Campers are put through an extreme memory test as they learn all about each other in just 20 seconds, zooming around Sea World’s Jet Rescue Coaster at speeds of up to 75km/hr in the Jetting To Know You challenge!
