Bravo’s ‘Camp Getaway’: Nile Lundgren Says Claire Sorrels Overreacted but She’s Not the Crew Member He Doesn’t Want to Speak to Again
Nile Lundgren from Camp Getaway seems to be emerging as the camp risk-taker. He’s gotten into trouble during both episodes thus far, managing to be screamed at by senior camp director Claire Sorrels and owner David Schreiber.
He told Showbiz Cheat Sheet he respects Sorrels but instead, viewers may see drama with another social coordinator that perhaps no one saw coming. Lundgren received his first verbal lashing from Sorrels when he made the executive decision to serve a guest’s birthday cake early, going against Sorrels’ instruction.
Sorrels was furious. She dragged Lundgren and Neely Fortune, who was also involved in the cake reveal, off to the side and laid into them. Fortune was later seen in tears.
Lundgren found himself once again in the hot seat during the next weekend when he led a group of campers in a late-night swim. It was Schreiber who was livid this time. He screamed “Get out!” at the group in the lake. Schreiber later admonished Lundgren for compromising the guests’ safety. Lundgren was then given a final warning, which means he could be sent packing if he makes another mistake this season.
Lundgren thinks Sorrels went a little too far
While he acknowledges he went against Sorrels’ instructions to wait an hour to serve the cake, Lundgren thinks she overreacted to the situation. “I think we did the right thing by making sure the guests were having a good time,” he says. “I think Claire certainly overreacted. And I’m not going to hold it against her. But it didn’t necessarily make me super happy to get yelled at the first weekend when I was looking out for the guests.”
He said while Sorrels is tough, he respects her and the job she does at Camp Getaway. “I respect Claire and what she’s doing,” he says. “I think the way it came across in the first episode was a little harsh.”
Social coordinator Sophia D’Angelo agrees and said Sorrels is always looking out for the guests’ best interests. “Honestly, I really appreciate Claire. She runs a tight ship,” she shares. “You have to when you are taking care of that many people … that many drunk people.” Adding she got to know Sorrels on a deeper level, which viewers will see in upcoming episodes.
“So I gonna hold a grudge for now,” Lundgren jokes and laughs. “But you’ll see how things develop throughout the season.”
He’s fine with Sorrels but not Monica O’Neal?
Lundgren forged a friendship with senior social coordinator Adam Mizrahi. “I’ve gotten pretty close with Adam actually,” he says. “He’s a slower guy to get to know at the beginning of the season. But as time goes on, I’ve developed a real liking of Adam and I appreciate him as a person.”
While he’s close with Mizrahi, he hints at some drama with the other senior social coordinator, Monica O’Neal. “If there’s anybody I don’t really mind [not] talking to it’s Monica. I think I could take that relationship out. Everyone else, everyone, in general, is a really good person. But I’m just saying if I didn’t have to talk to one person, it would probably be Monica.” OK … why? Viewers will have to stay tuned.
Camp Getaway is on Mondays at 10/9c on Bravo.
