I get the feeling he didn't CHOOSE to sleep in a tent.

There weren't tents at all.

So apparently the place we are going to be staying at for the camping trip is owned by one of the girl's family members...and she wants us to pay her $5.

Tell her you'll pay on the condition that the money go to camping "supplies".

(That means booze. Or marshmallows. Whatever.)

Not all camps have tents. Koda camp has cabins and so do many other camps. Plus that was your fault you were cold, I slept in a tent in the winter and was very warm.

Thats not what I would class as camping thats going to camp which are two different things IMO camping is when you go on holiday and sleep in a tent where going to camp is going to a camp where groups of other people go to an area generally with activities set up around.

Two of my friends are the only other ones in disagreement of paying with me, they also to be the two I'm tenting up with. One is actually going to bring a crap-ton of snacks, drinks, possibly booze, etc..and he said what he is going to do is that if she demands we pay when the camping trip comes up, then he shan't let her have any supplies.

Looks like all the marshmallows are going to me

That's also the same as going to a camp.

A summer camp is no different from regular camping, besides there being more people.

A lot of the summer camps I have seen have more permanent dwellings, like cabins and whatnot. Whereas camping pretty much guarantees you will be staying in at best a tent.

For me, "camping" has connotations of lots of hiking, whereas "going to a camp" implies that you will be more or less in one area. Furthermore, if you are going to a camp, you are probably going somewhere that is set up for the sole purpose of camping, and has facilities like outhouses and perhaps even showers. When I camp, I am almost always backpacking, and don't stay in the same location for more than one night.

To add to the semantic confusion:
In Maine, people also say that they "have a camp". This means that they have a semi-rustic dwelling in a non-urban location, like on a lake or something that they only live in seasonally. But these dwellings are typically pretty nice, and at home we would just call them "houses" or more likely, "those rich white people houses".
