The camp site is a public works project in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. On any day of the week, a random non-resident villager might set up camp at your campsite. This is a villager who does not currently live in your town. You can play mini-games with the camper. The camper might even decide to become a permanent resident of your town.
Building the Camp Site
The camp site is available in your list of public works from the beginning. Just sit in your mayor chair and choose it from the list of public works to build. Note! After the camp site is built, it can't be demolished, so choose its location carefully!
When a Camper Visits
A camper might set up a tent (or an igloo in winter) at your camp site. This can happen on any day of the week. The camper is a villager who does not currently live in your town.
Campers who Want to Move In
Sometimes when you talk to a camper, he or she will express a desire to move into your town. Campers can only move in if you currently have only nine villagers in your town and there is nobody moving in tomorrow (indicated by a rope fence with a sign where the new house will be). You can tell the camper if you want him or her to move into your town or not. If you tell the camper that you want him or her to move in, the camper will move into your town within the next few days.
If you talk to a camper a couple of times, he or she might want to play a minigame with you. The following sections list the games and how to play.
The camper will have five secret items. The camper will mention each item one at a time. Each time the camper mentions an item, you have the choice to buy that item and end the game. If you don't buy any of the first four items, you have to buy the last one.
Cheap Item Game
The camper will play a random guessing game with you. If you get enough correct guesses, the camper will sell you an item for a low price or give it to you for free. If you don't get enough correct guesses, you have to buy the item at a high price. The guessing games are random, with no way to tell which is the correct choice.
Sell Price Game
The camper will want to buy something that you are carrying. If you agree, the camper will play a random guessing game with you. If you get enough correct guesses, the villager will pay you a high price for your item. If you don't get enough correct guesses, the villager will pay you a low price. The guessing games are random, with no way to tell which is the correct choice.
