by David Reese August 27, 2003
Setting up camp in an urban location, be it a rooftop, a derelict building, a doorway or other urban space. The same type of bedding is used as camping in a tent - a sleeping bag, a rollmat etc, except that the intention is to use our existing urban environment as a location within which to sleep.

A hippie-like lifestyle consisting of hopping around from place to place, party to party, in an urban setting. Urban campers often crash where they please whether it be a random couch, floor, bathroom, etc.. Urban campers often do not make it home for days at a time to shower and/or handle any sort of responsibility.

The life of an urban camper is rewarding and adventurous.

The act of setting up camp or sleeping in an Urban environment without the luxuries of home. This can include sleeping in your car, passing out on the sidewalk, spending all night in line, setting up camp on the streets or even camping in a park that is far to close to a major metropolitan area to be considered “roughing it.”

1. A form of penance. What one generally does after terminating a long-term relationship in their late twenties or early thirties. Urban camping involves the acquisition of a small apartment that is sparsely equipped with furniture. In general, an urban camper should be equipped with no more than, a coffee machine, a juice press, a cot or yoga mat and a radio. The period of urban camping shall persist until the camper no longer feels guilty about the circumstances of the previous relationship and begins to acquire material possessions for the purposes of impressing others.
