A CrisisCamp (sometimes written Crisis Camp) is an event, often at short notice, to provide technical support, usually for communications technology, and most often immediately after a specific disaster.
For example, immediately after the Haiti earthquake in 2010, the coverage of Haiti improved radically on OpenStreetMap, as a result of work done at a hastily called CrisisCamp. Previously there was a lack of accurate and up-to-date maps for Haiti.
