I am a firm believer that if you're working out your muscles on a regular schedule and eating right, you will see some results. For myself personally, if I just cut my diet, I can lose 5 lbs in 2 weeks easy. But, I eat like a Spartan even before the cut, and it does hurt. I'm not sure how much control you'd have over food at camp. I'd really try and watch what I eat tho, every little bit helps. What goes in is just soo important.
Here's what I do: Right now, my shoulder has been killing me for 2 months and I'm scheduled to visit the sports medicine clinic. I don't go to a gym atm simply because I don't feel confident in the left side of my body. Also, the only thing that will drive me more crazy than not working out my left arm; shoulders and pecs at home, is going to a gym and having to limit how I develop a routine there. So I have a 20 lb weight that I use in my apt. and I do arms, pecs and my one shoulder in three day cycles (I run every other day tho) - 3 exercises a piece all with that one weight. I do a set of pushups before and after completing each routine. I'd probably do the same with pushups. It's not really really going hard, I really think you need a gym to kill it and stuff (but maybe I'm just not the next Tony Horton).
Are you sure about not being able to run anywhere? It's just that important to the equation, in my opinion. I have a hard time believing that if you really wanted to run, that someone couldn't direct you to a decent stretch somewhere. They should encourage that. Stay as active as possible tho and if you have some control over when you eat, I'd try to make a schedule that matches when you eat and when you'll be active. That's the best I can do with what I think might work. I'm still working on losing my micro-pounds without being in a gym everyday, too. I feel ya.
