Each afternoon sees each camp couple able to win points during allocated activities, with the losing couple having to clean camp that night. There will be nominated cooks and another couple will be in charge of organising the camp entertainment, which will be judged and scored by their fellow campers. The remaining couples will take part in traditional, cultural activities, which will be judged by local experts. At the end of the week, the couple with the most points wins the cash prize.

Hello Campers - Kamp Krusty - Netflix
“Kamp Krusty” is the first episode of The Simpsons' fourth season. It originally aired on the Fox network in the United States on September 24, 1992. During summer vacation, the children of Springfield attend Kamp Krusty, a summer camp named after Krusty the Clown. The camp is extremely unpleasant, leading to the campers rebelling against the camp director. The episode was written by David M. Stern and directed by Mark Kirkland. The episode was followed by the 28th season episode, “Kamp Krustier”, 25 years later.

The idea that the children should go to a camp run by Krusty was first suggested by David M. Stern. The animators were enthusiastic about making this episode because they had all gone to summer camps as children and thought it would be a fun episode to write for. The writers also thought that “it would be fun if while the kids are gone Homer and Marge find that as the kids are miserable their marriage is better than ever.” The layout for Bart and Lisa's cabin was influenced by the director, Mark Kirkland, who as a child went to a Boy Scout camp that had exposed wires and other similar faults. Kirkland was also sure that the character Mr. Black was going to reappear later in the series, but he never did. Al Jean commented, “I guess that the hydrofoil really got Mr. Black out of the show forever.” After he saw the completed episode, James L. Brooks called the writers and suggested that the Kamp Krusty script be used as a plotline for a film. However, the episode ran very short, and to make it barely fit the minimum time the Kamp Krusty song had to be lengthened by a number of verses. The episode was also chosen to be the first episode of the season, further complicating matters. As Jean told Brooks, “First of all, if we make it into the movie then we don't have a premiere, and second, if we can't make 18 minutes out of this episode how are we supposed to make 80?” Along with the following episode “A Streetcar Named Marge”, “Kamp Krusty” was a holdover from the previous season's production run. It was the final episode to be produced in this run and so the last animated at Klasky Csupo, before the show's producers Gracie Films moved its domestic production to Film Roman.
