The opposite of homesick (or home-lonely; medically, you're not actually ill). Intense longing to be back at summer camp. Afflicted persons may show a variety of symptoms, including melancholy, reminiscence, and attempts to incorporate camp culture, routine, and lingo into "real world" life.

The only known cure for campsickness is to send the afflicted person back to camp. Otherwise, be patient with them. Try to distract them without making them feel as though you don't care about how they feel. Listen to their camp stories, even though you've likely heard them more times than you care to. If possible, try to incorporate their favourite camp customs into the "real world". Encourage contact with other "camp people", because they will share experiences and alleviate the feeling of being alone.
After working full-time at summer camp, many counselors missed it so much they became campsick. Most of their friends at school and work did not understand, and aggravated the feeling.

The state or condition of missing camp. Commonly happens to counselors because they are at camp for so long, but also can happen easily to campers who embrace the camp culture. It is like homesickness, but worse because it is a place you have chosen to make your home. Some symptoms include crying, depression, loneliness, reading, making, drawing, listening to, singing, looking at, hugging, or eating anything that resembles camp, looks like camp, is from camp, or reminds you of camp, even remotely ex: mac & cheese, trees, camp songs/chants, music, movies, books, comics, magazines, where the characters/people go to camp, go camping, or are even outside in nature that may possibly look like camp or are in tents or a

cabin, even a lake or a tree or a pinecone... also, wearing, obsessing over, looking at drawing, or reading anything that came from camp, you brought back from camp, or was taken at camp. ex: wearing camp shirts for entire week, constantly looking at pictures from camp.

The only known cure is taking the person back to camp but over time, the level of campsickness will decrease the level of campsickness depends on how long you spent at camp. The longer, the worse the campsickness it also depends on the degree of how much you enjoyed camp, usually the more you enjoyed it the more you want to be back. Usually campsickness is at its prime the first week to month away from camp.Camp sickness is an awful condition
