If you're only going to be there a couple weeks, maybe you can just tolerate less than optimal care for a while, and then when you get home, do a good clarifying wash followed by some serious pampering? Unless your hair is very, very damaged and delicate, I think it will survive.

Maybe consider wearing some of those kerchiefs with the ties at the back or bandanas to hide the top of your hair, where it'll be the most greasy or dirty?

camp is all about exploring friendships in a who-cares?/less competitive culture. I spent 7 weeks last summer at camp and didn't oil once. I threw some coconut oil into my shampoo and conditioned every day, but generally felt okay not doing much to it. braids. ponytails. hats. hats. hats. bandanas. everybody is going to look a little greasy/dirty after a day or two and it's best just to embrace it and have fun. :)

I don't know if it's a good idea, but you could bring a spray bottle of ACV diluted with water and use it as a last rinse when you wash your hair with hard water. You could braid it and wear bandanas or hats like Kitmarlow said.
