Camping is a skill in Ultima Online which basically allows a player to safely log out in the wilderness. In order to create a camp, the player requires some kindling and a bedroll. Use the kindling to attempt to ignite it. Once done, in about 30 seconds or so, the player - and anyone near near by - will receive a message that the camp has been made secure. Anyone who gets the message (not just the person who created the camp) may then use a bedroll to log out instantly by placing it on the ground, unrolling it by double-clicking it, then double-clicking again to receieve a logout confirmation gump. Note that the skill can be combined with Hiding.

Unlike logging out at a tavern, inn or player home, logging out successfully with the Camping skill will merely display a Connection Lost message instead of returning the player to the Login screen.

The skill is considered useless, since it is no problem to log out at an inn or tavern.

To train the skill, first get 30 skill points from an NPC Gypsy, then load up with and double-click kindling. Each time you secure a camp, your skill may be raised.
