King Roland and Queen Miranda send Sofia, James, and Amber to Camp Wilderwood, an enchanted campground where its campers rough it through magic activities. At the same time, they meet up once again with the mischievous wizard Wendell Fidget, who is sent to camp as punishment for his past misdeeds. Sofia is having a good time, but Amber and James aren't having any luck. Amber doesn't know how to make friends herself, and James was caught standing in itching ivy, so nobody wants to be near him. When James becomes buddies with Wendell for an inter-camp competition against the Junior Knights in the annual Flag Race, they plot to build a raft to escape. Sofia suggests her new friend Mandy partner with Amber, but then finding no partner for herself, forms a threesome with them to build a boat.
