Martin book series was brought to life by director Melanie Mayron way back in 1995, fans of the gals celebrated worldwide. But now it's been two decades since your fave baby-sitters worked together to create the best summer camp around for all their charges, while simultaneously dealing with the ups and downs of growing up.
