Bear in mind that these are just ideas. The definitions are up to interpretation. These are the obvious ones that come into mind first, but there are many other possibilities that would show a different character to the orz.

Remember that if a direct translation worked, the translation computer wouldn't be using lingual best-fits.

I always took "*camper*" to mean "mortal", myself.

That doesn't quite fit "You are not even *campers*. Why are you coming to our *house*?".

IMNSHO, *camper* means something like friend or ally; more specifically, a person who lets Orz invade them in a friendly sort of way. That fits Meep-eep's example better.

I always thought of *camper* as "dimensional traveller" and *happy camper* as "friendly dimensional traveller" but I could be wrong.

Like the guy said- A lot is up to interpretation. That's the genius of the Orz scenes.
