Camp on Camp began as an exploration of nostalgic memories and skills obtained through experiences with the Girl Scouts and camping. I began connecting these memories with my interest in present-day survivalist preppers. Similar to these survivalists, I fantasized about my ability to me completely self-sufficient if the situation called for it. Like many people, this desire stems from my anxiety about the future. While I allow myself give into these interests, the other side of my brain pokes fun at the notion of complete self-sustainability.
