Camp Rock 2: Extended Edition © WDSHEQuite a few of our readers scoffed when we announced that Disney Channel’s Original Movie Camp Rock 2: Final Jam would be making its television debut on September 3. Why are Hollywood kids going to camp when the rest of us commoners are already back in school?

Pre-orders are now being accepted for both the Blu-ray/DVD Combo and the DVD editions.
