What camp? Well, at this point I'd go down to the theme camp sub-forum and see which camps, if any, are still looking for people. You don't have to be in a camp. You can just find an empty space, park, and meet the neighbors. Instant camp without dues or expectations of having to do things.
As to when you should leave Santa Barbara, well, when do you want to get there? How hard do you like to drive? Wanna stop in Reno for shopping, a shower, a meal and a good night's sleep or go straight directly through? Or just go when you're packed...
