Going back to summer camp as an adult and bonding with life-long friends is something that Tori Anderson has embraced with her whole heart.

The star of NCIS: Hawaii as Kate Whistler, and many Hallmark movies, Anderson says that being part of the ensemble of the original Hallmark movie, Campfire Christmas is pure joy.

The cast includes Corbin Bleu (High School Musical), Caitlyn Stryker (A Million Little Things), Matt Hamilton (Turner & Hooch), Alec Santos (Virgin River), and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (UnREAL).

It’s a load of good old-fashioned camp fun, with Christmas traditions to boot. Campfire Christmas is part of Hallmark’s Christmas in July celebration.

In her new feel-good movie, Anderson plays Peyton, whose parents have owned Camp Evergreen her whole life. When they decide it’s time for them to retire, they plan one last Christmas in July celebration at the camp for all their former campers and counselors. 

Peyton and her friends gather together there one last time, and while she’s happy to catch up with most of the old gang… she’s not too enthusiastic about seeing Thomas (Bleu). Her ex-boyfriend who broke her heart when he broke up with her after high school.
