Here you’ll have to contribute to the upkeep of the Gang by providing funds, provisions and medicine. You’ll also find all your other gang members here and can take part in companion activities and more.

You can also increase camp morale by taking part in keeping the camp clean, this is denoted with a small black icon on the radar. Keeping morale up will result in a happier camp along with additional supplies all over the camp.

Donating to Camp

There are numerous ways for you to donate to a camp such as skinning animals and bringing the pelts to Pearson or using the Ledger to donate directly. In bringing pelts and carcasses to Pearson, you’ll be able to craft Satchels with helpful benefits.

Use the Ledger to purchase camp upgrades.

Once you gain access to the Ledger upon completing the Story Mission Money Lending and Other Sins I&II which will allow you to directly donate to the camp by using the Ledger next to the box that Dutch has set up near his tent. Using this you can purchase camp upgrades such as improving tents or buying a boat, all of which unlock new features or better supplies.
