Camping Season is an event in Doubutsu no Mori, Animal Crossing, and Doubutsu no Mori e+ where villagers will set up a tent or igloo for a day. In the summer, villagers will be in tents, while in the winter, they will be in igloos. The tent or igloo will be where a signpost usually resides in town. The player can play games with the campers to win unique items, found nowhere else in the game.
In the summer, non-resident villagers will visit town, setting up a tent where a signpost would normally be. If talked to, they can offer to play a game with the player, which can result in the player receiving unique items.
In the winter, one of the villagers from the player's town, will set up an igloo where a signpost would normally be. If talked to, they can offer to play a game with the player, which can result in the player receiving unique items.
- On rare occasions, an igloo camper can give the player a beta item called "DUMMY".
