Stories of teens who have gotten in too deep, usually involving criminal elements, is a format that’s been around a long time, but has become popular again thanks to Netflix’s hit Outer Banks. Now comes a Belgian analogue to that show, taking place in a woodland Scout camp. The man in the car takes out his shotgun, and as he’s about to do something, he hears someone running through the woods. It looks like a teenager; when the kid disappears from his sight, the guy curses, goes back to his cabin, and finds that the diamonds he hid in his safe are gone. We then see a bus full of teenage Scouts going through those same woods in the daytime. They’re going to summer camp, where they split into animal-named teams and compete to see which group has the best survival skills. The Coyotes are an especially close-knit group, and they have a new member: Kevin (Louka Minnella), best friend of Furet (Kassim Meesters) and younger brother of scout leader Doberman (Felix Vannoorenberghe). Kevin has had his issues with drugs, and his dad catches him trying to sneak some into camp. Doberman wants to make sure his brother doesn’t mess this up, so he’s extra hard on him. It’s tough to get a handle on Coyotes after the first episode because the caper is just setting itself up by the time we get to the end of that episode.
