I don't think he even owned a tent, so hard to say.

YES. He definitely gets there from time to time.

Often intentionally, like If A Girl Answers Don't Hang Up, International Lover, and Vibrator. Sometimes unintentionally, like Computer Blue, Temptation, Thieves in the Temple, 3 Chains o' Gold, Shhh, Papa, Eye Hate U, Dolphin, and Thunder.

Visually, you can see it in Sheila's band, especially the Romance era, and whatever Prince was wearing / doing with his hair and beard 1990-1995.

If you define "camp" as a young man turning himself into one of the world's greatest entertainers and ilving the life 24/7, maybe.

But it was his life, his portrayal. The shallow may see it as "camp" but it was the business of show.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Yes Prince was campy but he toned it way down when he started wearing suits and thumping his bible more.

He had the ability to be camp, which is cool, IMO.

Camp: impertinent, audacious, ironic, tongue-in-cheek, ostentatious.

Yeah, the 'bible-thumping' curbed it.

Because you said "we" and don't nobody here know your friends from round the way. It's a word in the dictionary. Why the confusion?
