Camp Orange was an Australian children's reality television show broadcast on Nickelodeon. The first season premiered in February 2005. The latest season, Camp Orange: Twisted Siblings, premiered on 27 June 2015.

The format has been adapted and produced for international markets, including Italy and, more recently, the UK. The latter, which was filmed and produced in Australia, premiered on 22 July 2011 in the UK and Ireland.


The show stars teams of best friends, selected from thousands of video audition entries that kids send in from across Australia and New Zealand, vying for the outdoor adventure of a lifetime. They battle it out in messy physical challenges that test their wits and their teamwork skills in order to win prizes. Starting from season 5, contestants would vote at the end of each day for 'Champ Orange', the best and fairest. From season 9, 'Champ Orange' is voted for by the public.

Bringing the thunder down under, teen super-stars Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin (who play twins, Max and Phoebe on Nickelodeon's hit live-action comedy, The Thundermans will host this year's show. A contrast to the glitz and glamour of the pair's home-town in Los Angeles, Jack and Kira will make their first trip to the Australian bush to lead four teams of sibling duos (who were chosen from hundreds of auditions sent in by kids across Australia and New Zealand) through the slimiest, smelliest and most seriously twisted challenges in the show's eleven seasons. This year, campers have more at stake than ever before. The winning team, as voted by kids watching at home, will be crowned Nickelodeon's Star Siblings at a live series finale and score a recurring role on the channel as Nickelodeon's official kid reporters. By registering at, kids at home will also have the chance to star in the series finale as the fifth Camp Orange team! As well as mastering the physical challenges, siblings must also channel super-stomach strength to battle the Barf Buggy, a cart of disgusting delicacies that the winning team of each challenge must nominate a rival team to dine on.

Now in its eleventh season, Camp Orange is Nickelodeon Australia's multiple ASTRA Award-winning (2008, 2009, 2010) local production and Australia's longest running kids' reality series.
