Ben was the well-meaning assistant cook at Camp Arawak.


Sleepaway Camp (1983)Edit

Ben watched the kids arrive at Camp Arawak with his supervisor, Artie. Artie commented on his perverted urges, which Ben laughed off. Within a few days, Ben walked into the kitchen and found Artie screaming in pain on the floor. Camp owner Mel Kostic bribed Ben with a promotion to keep Artie's 'accident' quiet.


Ben sees Artie's devious behavior, or at the least suspects him, but doesn't act to protect the children because it's not his place. He perhaps represents ineffective adults.

Behind the ScenesEdit

Actor Robert Earl Jones is the father of James Earl Jones.

Ben's character is mirrored by Charlie in Return to Sleepaway Camp.
