CampAntics bills itself as a simulation of summer camp. Players roll to move their pawns around the board; each trip around is a day at camp. If a player lands on an activity space, he gets the indicated number of fun-points in the form of acorn pieces. When landing on a Mischief space, a player gets points for recruiting other players to participate. The winner is the player who’s accumulated the most fun-points after a chosen number of days at camp.

Other features of the game include a board with artwork oriented to all four sides, a rulebook in comic book form, multiple levels of advanced rules (for “returning” and “senior” campers), and a solo play option.
