Camp NaNoWriMo is a proposed year-round version of NaNoWriMo. Little is known about Camp NaNoWriMo. Speculation began in August 2009 when Chris Baty posted a blog post chronicling his and Lindsey Grant's trip to the screenprinter for the 2009 NaNoWriMo shirts[1]. One of the shirts featured a Camp NaNoWriMo design with the logo "An idyllic writers retreat, smack-dab in the middle of your crazy life".

Speculation fueled in October when the Fund-o-Meter showed Camp NaNoWriMo at the $750,000 spot. The text read, "750K = A very exciting new program codenamed 'Camp NaNoWriMo' will be developed and built. The program will bring a free, year-round version of NaNo to the Internet in early 2011. That's right, NaNo citizens: ALL YEAR ROUND!"[2] When fundraising hit the book before the $750,000 level, Wrimos began to speculate even more about the specific nature of Camp NaNoWriMo. In December, Dragonchilde explained on the forums that Camp NaNoWriMo would give Wrimos some of the tools to do NaNo and that its existence was contingent on funding[3]

Camp NaNoWriMo has been in OLL's three-year strategic plan since since its creation in 2008[4].
