    Hello, can you please tell me if there is a word in Latin for "camp", not only in the military sense, but in the recreational, pacific sense of camping? I don't mind if it be modern Latin, though I would prefer Classical.

    The context is this line of a poem (sorry for the rough translation), "drinking beer at camps".

    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings

    You might manage something with tabernaculum.

    Hi Scholiast.
    tabernaculum is promising, but I would like to express that idea of being in the open air, near the campfire, rather than inside a tent.
