This exclamatory sentence is used by someone “peaking” on a hallucinogenic experience. The statement usually comes after a long period of staring off into space or closely examining an otherwise unremarkable tapestry, or better yet, a complicated music visualization program. For some reason it appears to be psychologically necessary to human beings to alert their companions when they are, in fact, “tripping balls,” lest there be any doubt that the imbiber of a hallucinogenic compound had reached the appropriate “plateau” of the experience.

The statement is usually followed by another long period of stupefied silence.
Whoa man, I'm totally tripping balls...

“Camp” n. or “Campy” adj. refers to intentionally exaggerated thematic or genre elements, especially in television and motion picture mediums. “Camp” style willfully over-emphasizes certain elements of the genre or theme, creating an almost self-satirical milieu. Some of the most popular examples include the James Bond films (exaggeration of espionage activities) and the original Batman series starring Adam West.

Because it strives for satire, intentional camp is likely to have a sophisticated cult following, consisting of the people who "get it." See, for example, the remarks of Mystery Science Theater's Joel Hodgson: "The right people will get it!"
I hated the TV show Alias until I realized how campy it was! Now I think it's great!
