The 4 scout camps I have been to have tents set up in groups in clearings under trees for visiting campers. The only permanent building is the dining hall. That's what burned down at hual-cu-cuish.

maybe a new camp type is needed for these others- dormitory 

School camps I have been to (California and Japan) are completely dormitory based - but they are not a hotel. 

For a dining hall in a  tent camping site

After the long discussion I have tried to keep the proposal as clean and simple as possible. I hope someone else will stand up to kick off the camp_site=* proposal for facility levels.

> My personal experience with a summer YMCA camp many decades ago and more recently looking at some Girl Scout, Boy Scout and church affiliated “camps” in the forest where I do some volunteer work leads me to think that many are a whole different thing. For example, visitors usually come in groups and are often housed in barracks or dormitories. The daily activities of the visitors are planned out and under adult supervision. Rather than have a restaurant I think you’d more likely find a mess hall or cafeteria with fixed menu and dining times, etc.
