Ernest gets a job as a fix-it man at a summer camp for troubled boys, but what he really wants to be is a counselor. This juvenile comedy, filled with potty humor and slapstick, chronicles his campaign to get a promotion. As a consummate bungler, he ends up causing all kinds of comical chaos. Fortunately, he also ends up helping many of the campers.
