Factual error: At the hotel, Chessy's door to her room stays open after she goes into the other room to discuss the whole 'dad doesn't know' matter.

Factual error: Placing Hallie and Annie alone in an isolation cabin without a counselor sleeping there to supervise is an enormous liability. No camp that cared about its reputation and about avoiding a lawsuit would ever put two girls in such a potentially unsafe situation.
