Although, I've always had a camp, and am likely to always have one, I don't recommend just joining a group for the sake of joining a group. Only join a camp if you are excited by its mission. Do some reading/researching on what you should bring and learn how to do the basics for yourself. Strongly consider joining an orphan-type camp, where there is mutual aid, but no theme.
If you still want to join a theme camp, then go ahead and do that. One word, court the camp(s) you're interested in, don't wait for them to come to you.
