  • Summary
    • The Army Camps are where your troops go when they're done training. Most troops will take up more than one space (Barbarians, Archers, and Goblins only take up one space though). Upgrading and building more Army Camps lets you store more troops, allowing higher chances of victory in raids.
    • They continue to function even when they are being upgraded, allowing you to keep your armies at full capacity at all times.
    • Unlike Clan Castle troops, troops stationed in the Army Camp do not defend your village during an attack. In fact, they do not appear on the attacker's map at all (Army Camps, full or not, will appear empty to an attacker).
    • Prior to the Halloween 2012 update, troops would die/disappear if their Army Camp was destroyed in a raid. In the update, troops were allowed to remain even if their camp was destroyed. Due to widespread player support towards keeping this feature, Supercell made it permanent. As a result, troops stationed in Army Camps are no longer at risk if their camp is destroyed by an attacker.
    • The maximum amount of housing space you can have for your Troops is 300 (4 Army Camps x 75 spaces). This increases to 345 if you include the extra 45 in a fully upgraded Clan Castle at Town Hall 13.
    • Heroes do not use Army Camps. They instead use their respective Altars.
    • You should not surround your Army Camps with Walls, as they do not need protection. Army Camps also occupy a lot of space (4x4). More walls are needed to contain them when the extra walls can be used to surround defensive buildings that are already inside the wall, strengthening the defense.
    • It is always preferable to initially build all available Army Camps and then upgrade the lowest-level ones first. Every time you upgrade (except upgrading to level 2) the camp only gains 5 more housing space and it costs more elixir the more you upgrade. The next level is usually much more expensive than the one before it.
    • Army Camps have a unique hitbox, unlike other Buildings. That means that attacking Troops will have to walk right to the center where the campfire is located in order to attack the Army Camp.
    • Clan Castle troops do not go into the Army Camp when donated and thus do not take housing space in the Army Camp; they instead go to the Clan Castle.
    • If you look closely, you can see reactions from some Troops when you tap on the Army Camp. For example, Barbarians raise their swords, Archers pump their fists in the air and Minions sneeze.
    • As of the 16 September 2014 update, you can now dismiss any troops from the Army Camps, but the troop cost is not refunded.

  • Upgrade Differences
    • The Army Camp undergoes significant visual changes at levels 2, 7, 8, and 10.
      • When initially constructed, the Army Camp is a large open grassy area with a cooking fire in the center.
      • At level 2, a bare spit appears over the fire, and the fire appears to be larger.
      • At level 3, a carrot appears on the spit.
      • At level 4, the carrot is replaced with a chicken/turkey. Two bones are sticking out.
      • At level 5, the chicken/turkey is replaced with a pig.
      • At level 6, the pig is replaced with a bull and more rocks are added around the fire. The bull has a ring in its nose, and it is a dark reddish-brown color.
      • At level 7, the spit and food disappear. Instead, the cooking fire is surrounded by large black rocks with sharp edges.
      • At level 8, the black rocks glow bright red and it has a slight glow around the rocks. The rock on the far right shrinks in size. It suggests that the rocks have been burned. There also appear to be more jagged rocks surrounding the fire.
      • At level 9, the glowing black rocks change their position and size to be more uniform; all being very similar in size and having 3 rocks on each end. 6 sets of bars are also added above the fire, 3 going horizontal and 3 going vertical.
      • At level 10, the glowing black rocks are removed, and instead, the campfire rests atop a stone platform, with metallic corner pieces on each corner, each with a decorative golden ring. The campfire is surrounded by flat stones that cover a significant portion of the grass around the Army Camp.
      • At level 11, the fire pit becomes larger and the edges become more "flat". The sides have metal support, the corners gain golden chains, and the corners are no longer diagonal shaped pieces.

  • Trivia
    • A special form of Army Camp appears in a few single-player levels, including Goblin Gauntlet, Maginot Line, and High Pressure. They are 2 by 2 in size, and behave like an Obstacle; they cannot be attacked, and troops can be deployed on top of them.
      • An Army Camp also appears as an "obstacle" in the "Playground" level used to try out Super Troops.
    • When you move your Army Camp, any Troops there will wait until it is placed in its new position, at which time they will move towards the place where you put it.
    • When a Troop finishes training, smoke appears in the Army Camp that the Troop will go to.
    • When your Army Camps are full they will display a full sign on top. However, you can't see this sign when upgrading the Army Camp, because it is replaced by the building upgrade's progress bar.
    • The housing spaces of Army Camps are calculated jointly rather than individually. For example, a player who has 4 level 6 Army Camps will be able to hold 10 Dragons even though each individual Army Camp has 50 housing spaces. As a result, two of the four Army Camps will appear to hold 3 Dragons that the army camps can't hold individually.
    • The size of the Army Camp was reduced from 5x5 to 4x4 in the December 2019 Update, which also introduced Town Hall 13.
    • The Army Camp is the only Army Building which is not bought in shop and is already in the base when you first open the game.

"Your troops are stationed in Army Camps. Each camp can house only one troop type at a time. Some troops can be upgraded to fit more units per camp!"

  • Summary
    • The Army Camp houses Builder Base Troops which you can use for Versus Battles.
    • Army Camps take up a 3x3 space.
    • Each Army Camp houses one particular type of troop, rather than collectively housing a combination of troops. The number of troops that each Army Camp can house will depend on the level of that troop.
    • Each camp trains instantaneously and does not cost any Builder Elixir.

      Ruined Army Camp

    • You must have all your Army Camps full before you can start a Versus Battle.
      • All the troops in the Army Camps that are trained will be used up even if you do not deploy them, though this is not a significant issue because of the instant training.
    • The build cost and build time for the Army Camp increases the more Army Camps you own. At Builder Hall level 8, you can have a maximum of six Army Camps.
    • Unlike Army Camps in the Home Village, they cannot be upgraded. However, most troops allow more of their kind to fit in a single Army Camp if they are sufficiently upgraded in the Star Laboratory.

  • Defensive Strategy
    • Army Camps don't have a lot of hitpoints, so place them outside the base or in the corners as a distraction as they do nothing on defense.
    • Though having fewer hitpoints, they do count the same percentage as any other building when they are destroyed.
    • If you can manage to put it in a defense's range it might kill a couple of Raged Barbarians or Sneaky Archers and catch the opponent off-guard.
  • Offensive Strategy
    • Try to take out Army Camps with a single small unit, such as a Sneaky Archer or a Beta Minion for extra percentage in the attack.

  • Trivia
    • Unlike the Army Camp in the Home Village, these Army Camps take more time to build and cost more Elixir per quantity. It is the only building, other than the Builder's Hut in the Home Village, for which the build cost increases with the number built.
    • The Army Camp in the Builder Base has a 3x3 space, unlike the Army Camps in the Home Village which have a 4x4 space (which were formerly 5x5).
    • On 26/6/2017, the fifth Army Camp originally intended for Builder Hall level 6 which was to cost 1,500,000 Builder Elixir and take one day to build, was removed, leaving Builder Hall level 6 with only four Army Camps. This Army Camp subsequently re-appeared when Builder Hall 7 was introduced, this time costing 2,500,000 Builder Elixir and taking 2 days to build.
    • In the Single Player Campaign level Goblin Gauntlet, there appears to be a 2x2 Army Camp down the bottom of the base, although it appears to be different than this Army Camp, but is related more to the level 1 Army Camp at home base.
