- Title Reference: In the "Bloomsbury Dictionary of Idioms" by Gordon Jarvie, "camp it up" is defined as: "act in a posturing or exaggeratedly effeminate way." The book gives the example: "It was one of those serial comedies about a department store, full of male shop assistants in pin-striped suits camping it up in the most ridiculous fashion." The phrase is "an idiomatic verb phrase from the slang adjective 'camp'".
