The first day of driftwood camp turns out to be a disaster involving a skunk and a bathroom explosion, Which leaves them left with only 7 campers instead of the original 35 and in need of help to improve their financial situation. Charlie calls his father, Colonel Buck Hinton, for help to whip the kids into shape, since they have problems following orders.
When the Driftwood camp is raided by Camp Canola (led by Lance), which has been joined by the 28 campers who left Camp Driftwood earlier. Lance declares the Camp Canola will be the best camp. While Buck trains the driftwood kids, Camp Canola raid them once again until Lance and his son, Bobby, then to insults him. Buck is highly furious with them, so he and kids plans to start mutiny on Lance.
After getting revenge on Lance for getting his campers to steal the Camp Driftwood flag, Lance then challenges Charlie and Camp Driftwood to the Camp Olympiad but the kids have to train for it.
On the day of the Olympiad, the Driftwoods kids report that they found out that the rival camp is cheating and have been doing so for several past years; this is especially true when it's revealed that Charlie lost to Lance when they were kids. While the Driftwood manages to beat Canola to the finale, Charlie lets Ben do the climbing course, since Ben knows how to climb, but he falls. However, Becca tells everyone that Lance greased the wall, making everyone realize that Lance cheated in every game in the Olympiad, including to an outraged Charlie. While Bobby is climbing the wall, Ben uses the tree next to it with enough time left to hit the bell for the Driftwood to win the Olympiad.
A few moments later, Lance criticizes Bobby for his failure. Fed up with Lance's constant denying of being his father, Bobby angrily kicks Lance, making him stumble backward on the wall's supports. This causes the wall to collapse on top of a nearby trophy display, smashing the trophies instantly.
Lance is last seen crying hysterically over the damage of the trophies.
