Why is Daddy Day Camp rated PG? Daddy Day Camp is rated PG by the MPAA for mild bodily humor and language.

Although Charlie and Phil seemed to have things under control by the end of Daddy Day Care, their new preschoolers are running amok, urinating on houseplants, destroying cakes and generally misbehaving. Still the two men think they are also capable of running a day camp for older children—campers who prove to be equally rowdy. Tying up their counselor, breaking into the snack shack, shooting arrows at an adult and having a food fight are just the first of their activities. They are also into name-calling, groin injuries, toilet jokes and throwing urine-filled balloons. Unfortunately the adults don’t behave much better. Cheating, demeaning comments and humiliation are all part of their interactions with others. A methane explosion in the outhouse leaves one man standing in his underwear and a bus crash is played for laughs. The script also contains scatological slang, vulgar expressions and brief profanities.
