|“||You Bastards! You Goddamn bastards! Do you know who I am? I am Cameron C. Campbell! I’m richer than all of you combined! I was the Prime Minister of Thailand for Christ’s sake!||”|
—Cameron Campbell, "Parents' Day"
Cameron C. Campbell is the main antagonist of Camp Camp. He is the founder of Camp Campbell, of which is named after Campbell himself. He is also shown to be an international wanted criminal, con-artist and even became the Prime Minister of Thailand at one point. He is seen to be a father figure and role model in David's eyes.
Cameron Campbell has a tall, brawny build and grey hair, sideburns and mustache, along with visible grey chest hair and arm hair as well as a cleft chin. He wears a brown vest over a brownish white polo with rolled up sleeves and a collar that's popped out. Along with yellow-brown pants supported by a black belt that has a gold belt buckle in the middle, and brown knee-high boots. During his younger years, he had brown hair and sported the same wear as he does now, but with the exception of him wearing a neckerchief similar to how David is.
Though he appears a just and passionate man, claiming to care for the welfare of others in the camp, In reality, it is merely a facade to hide his true colors: "A rich piece of shit with terrible morals" as Max points out in Journey to Spooky Island.
Despite believing in traditional American values and wanting to create the perfect camp, he appears neglectful and left Camp Campbell to fall to pieces, leaving it in the care of the positive and overly enthusiastic, yet naive and delusional David, and the cynical and short-tempered Gwen.
At the end of Parents' Day, Cameron's true colors come out, shouting and resisting arrest while he shouted how rich and powerful he is in front of the campers and their parents before getting shoved off to prison. It is unknown whether he has always been a greedy, manipulative con artist, or if something in his life turned him into such a man as he did care for the well-being of his councilors and campers, but shifted some time after "Jasper Dies at the End" into his current personality, however in the same episode, it appeared that he was ready to kill David to hide Jasper's apparent death.
