* ActorAllusion: Dennis, played by Creator/ChristopherLloyd, is rivaled against Hendricks, played by Thomas F. Wilson. [[Film/BackToTheFuture Remind anyone of anything?]]
** Dennis also falls in love with someone he has to lie to, as Doc Brown did in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII''. And in both cases, the love interest forgives him.
** Feln mentions that he's going to Florida, a brief nod to Burgess Meredith's time as a voiceover announcer for Florida Orange Juice commercials.
* HeyItsThatGuy: A few:
** This movie reunites [[Film/BackToTheFuture Doc Brown and Biff Tannen]].
** A young [[Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles Kyle Reese]] plays Mud.
** A young [[Series/{{Smallville}} Chloe Sullivan]] plays Heather.
** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Captain Janeway]] is Trish's mom, and [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Commander Riker]] is Arnold's dad.
** [[Series/HoneyIShrunkTheKids Peter]] [[BosomBuddies Scolari]] is Mud's dad, and his eventual ''Honey, I Shrunk The Kids'' co-star Hillary Tuck plays Betty.
** Celeste is played by [[SisterAct Sister Mary Robert]].
** This movie was Creator/JessicaAlba's first credited role.
** [[Series/{{Batman}} Burgess Meredith]] is Feln, the guy who sells the camp to the kids.
** The Bee Girl from BlindMelon's "No Rain" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qVPNONdF58 music video]] plays a character named Eileen.
** Andrew Keegan and M. Emmet Walsh have made careers out of being "That Guy".
* HeyItsThatPlace: ''Camp Nowhere'' was filmed at Disney's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Oak_Ranch Golden Oak Ranch]], where numerous other movies and TV shows have filmed (including, yes, ''Film/BackToTheFuture''). This movie features the ranch's famous covered bridge, its lakeside lodge, and its old barn.
* RealLifeRelative: Arnold's parents were played by real life couple Genie Francis and Creator/JonathanFrakes.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Have a look at the cutting edge early-90's computers and [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]]es! Plus, the entire ploy would have been meaningless had Google existed in 1994 -- though it's not much of a stretch to believe that Mud could've easily set up websites for the non-existent camps ( la ''Film/{{Accepted}}'') had the movie been made later in the decade.
