Looking for Miracles tells the story of Ryan Delaney, an enterprising young man of sixteen, determined to make a better life for himself, his younger brother and his struggling single mother. Upon winning a scholarship to university, Ryan must still find a way to raise money. Despite being too young, having no experience, and possessing a phobic fear of water, Ryan manages to get a job as Head Counsellor at Camp Hochelaga. In a brief moment of compassion, Ryan arranges to have his pesky brother accompany him to camp as long as he fends for himself. This causes a summer filled with disaster, adventure and ultimately, triumph.
