A Camper (Japanese: キャンプボーイ Camp Boy) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that debuted in the Generation I games. They are generally depicted as little boys in uniforms. Their female counterpart is Picnicker.

They raise a variety of Pokémon, mainly those that would be found in the woods.

In Generation I, this class is called Jr. Trainer♂ (Japanese: ボーイスカウト Boy Scout, shortened to ボーイ Boy). The Japanese name was presumably changed in localizations and later games for legal reasons, although the class's name remains unchanged in the Japanese Virtual Console releases of the Generation I games.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Campers battled outside of Gyms will award two Great Balls along with prize money upon being defeated.
