However, despite all the aforementioned horrors the kids are put through, Mr Black manages to keep them largely complacent on the [[TheCakeIsALie false pretense that he is only temporarily assuming Krusty's role as camp manager, and that Krusty will be coming in a few weeks.]] However, it soon becomes apparent to everyone except Bart that this is not the case, and it's officially confirmed [[DramaticIrony (to the audience at least)]], by showing him on a trip to Maluabu, unaware of the camp's true nature. Lisa does manage to sneak a letter to Marge and Homer, warning them about the camp, but they just think she's exaggerating because she's homesick, and it looks as thought all is lost for the unhappy campers.

Eventually, likely to get more work out of the kids, Mr. Black hires Barney Gumble to come dress up as Krusty for the kids. But with their spirits completely broken, all they can do is blindly wonder why "Krusty" is acting "so funny". However, Bart - who had staked his entire sanity on Krusty's arrival - finally snaps and leads a revolution to overthrow the camp ''Lord of the Flies'' style. Mr. Black and the counselors hightail it and the kids seize full control of the camp. This makes news, and Homer loses his newly grown hair and gains his weight he lost when he sees Bart is the leader. Because of the camp crisis, Krusty is called back from Wimbledon in England and comes to the camp. After learning from Bart what he and the other children went through because of him, he genuinely apologizes to the kids, claiming that Mr. Black offered him a huge sum of money for the trademark rights. To make it up to them, he takes the kids on a trip to the "happiest place on Earth" -- Tijuana Mexico. They still have a wonderful time there nonetheless.

-->'''Bart''': Krusty, this camp was a nightmare. They fed us gruel, they forced us to make wallets for export, and one of the campers was eaten by a bear.

* PhotoMontage: The episode ends with a montage of photos after Krusty takes the kids to Tijuana, and participating in acts that kids probably shouldn't be doing, such as watching a cockfight, Bart getting a tattoo, or Bart and Lisa watching Krusty passed out drunk on a bottle of tequila.

* TheCakeIsALie: IT was never really the plan for Krusty to eventually come to the camp. When Bart realizes this, he attacks.

But when the kids arrive, Krusty is nowhere to be found. It turns out, the ''real'' owner of the camp is a man named Mr. Black (voiced by Creator/HarryShearer), who merely bought the rights to use Krusty's name and image for the camp to attract kids and the clown has no actual association with the camp. But this is not all that turned out to be false advertising. Instead of a fun and big budgeted summer camp, titular Kamp Krusty is low-budget, unsafe dystopia-like one, whose only purpose save for making wallets in arts and crafts to sell, is just to torture kids. Making matters worse, their counselors are none other than other than Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney! The cabins are vermin infested, cold and locked tight from the outside at night, the lakes too dangerous to swim in, the kids roast pinecones instead a twisted shadow of marshmallows, their nature hikes end in disaster, the infermarie staff members are more interested in smoking than tending to injured campers, they're feed nothing but gruel which sometimes has living animals inside of it, they do not get to write any letters to their parents for obvious reasons, their presents from home are taken, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking they are forced sing a song praising the camp]]. Mr. Black and the bullies on the other hand enjoy a life of luxury while the kids suffer miserably. However, despite all the aforementioned horrors the kids are put through, Mr Black manages to keep them largely complacent on the false pretense that his management of the camp is only temporary and that Krusty will be coming in a few weeks. However, it soon becomes apparent to everyone except Bart that this is not the case, and it's officially confirmed [[DramaticIrony (to the audience at least)]], by showing him on a trip to Maluabu, unaware of the camp's true nature.

** Krusty yells, "Where were you when I sang at Farm Aid?" This alludes to Jackie Mason shouting at a detractor, "Where were you when I marched in the Civil Rights Movement?"

* BaitAndSwitch: At one point, we see Homer giving Marge a massage on a hill. When she says they'll miss the fireworks, Homer says they have all the fireworks they need right here (implying that they're going to have sex). He then pulls back a blanket to reveal a picnic basket stuffed with fireworks (which are probably Bart's).

* ContinuityNod: Krusty's pacemaker, first mentioned in the season one episode, "Krusty Gets Busted", gets referenced again when Lisa notices the scar on Krusty's chest (among other things), confirming that he's not another impostor like they suspected.

* DreamIntro: The episode opens with Bart in class on the day before summer vacation where Skinner makes an announcement over the speakers to tell them to take out their hardware tools to destroy the school, leading to a montage of the kids destroying the school as "School's Out For Summer" by Music/AliceCooper plays in the background. The dream ends with Bart destroying the school with a wrecking ball and then being woken up and having to attend the last day of school for real.



* NoodleIncident: Mr. Black was president of Euro-Krustyland until it blew up. We don't find out how that happened or if he was involved.

* OffModel: Ralph Wiggum looks skinny and misshapen during the scene of Lisa handing out care packages and mail to the campers. This can be justified in two ways: (a) Ralph was in the fat camp and his skinny, misshapen look is from lost weight, or (b) the animators (either overseas or domestic) screwed up and didn't have time to change it.
