About BUNK’D TV Show
Disney Channel’s family comedy “BUNK’D,” a spin-off of the hit comedy series “Jessie,” follows siblings Emma, Ravi, and Zuri Ross as they leave their extravagant New York City penthouse and head off to Camp Kikiwaka, a rustic summer camp in Maine where their parents met as teenagers. Emma is learning to trust her instincts while Ravi continues to be the family’s voice of reason, and Zuri, the baby of the family, outsmarts and outwits everyone in her company. The Ross kids must band together to overcome trials and tribulations, relying on their instincts and one another for support.
Emma and Ravi step into new roles as CIT’s (Counselor In Training), learning how to be resourceful, responsible role models to their campers. Lou, the cheerful head counselor, and Xander, the camp heartthrob, step in to show them the ropes, befriending the Ross kids, who are complete fish out of water in their new setting. Zuri makes new friends with her fellow campers, the anxious and overly studious Tiffany and compulsive fibber Jorge.
Together the Ross kids and their friends must navigate the hijinks and curveballs thrown by the owner of the camp, Gladys, who with the help of her sneaky niece Hazel, is out to get them because of her decades-old rivalry with their mom. But nevertheless, along with their new friends, Emma, Ravi and Zuri adapt to their new “home away from home” and settle into their exciting new lives at Camp Kikiwaka.
