Wow, Indian camps are quite different from American ones.  I would say the keywords to describe camp up in the Western Ghats of Tamil Nadu are choatic, spontaneous, relaxed, community oriented and unorganized (but in a good sense).  Main activities included trekking, doing laundry in the river, chopping, cleaning dishes, sitting around the campfire, collecting wood, trying to stay warm, and enjoying the sweatlodge that the previous campers built.
