It can be hard to imagine that SpongeBob was ever anymore childlike than he already is, but now fans can get a look at what their favorite square, yellow sponge was like as a 10-year-old. Nickelodeon has just announced a new SpongeBob spin-off Kamp Koral.

According to Variety, new SpongeBob series will follow the adventures of a young SpongeBob and a Patrick as they attend summer sleepaway camp “building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest.”

“SpongeBob has an incredible universe to expand upon and the greenlight for Kamp Koral is a testament to the strength and longevity of these characters known and loved by generations of fans around the world,” said Ramsey Naito, EVP of animation production and development at Nickelodeon.

No word yet on when the new show will air, but it’s scheduled to start production at the studio this month.
