A form of hipster, typically found either at a summer camp or in transit to/from said camp. Campsters are marked by their allegiance to Chocos, Keens, Merrils, Toms, Rainbows, or any shoe that was hand-painted. They also tend to carry Camelbacks, grow not-impressive beards, treat swimming in lakes as akin to showering and consider Salute Your Shorts to be the greatest reality show in history. Often seen wearing Silly Bandz traded from younger campers in addition to their superfluous amounts of hand-strung friendship bracelets, Campsters are experts of archery, fishing, making things out of duct tape, making camp fires and know every single cheesy camp song ever (ironically, of course). Don't ask what camp they've just returned from - you've probably never heard of it. It's pretty new and underground, so you'll probably hear of it a few years when it sells out, becomes mainstream and starts buying brand name cereals.
Person A: Dude, where were you last month?
Person B: I was teaching 8 year olds how to break in a wild stallion at this camp I know in Ohio. You've probably never heard of it.
Person A: Wow, you are such a campster
