About Camp Upgrading

You will be able to upgrade your camp via the ledger. The ledger can be found near Dutch's Tent or in his room depending on which camp you are on. It is marked by a square with a "$" on it.

Contribute Money to the Gang to Upgrade

Upgrading the camp will require you to pony up some cash. So before upgrading the camp, make sure that you have enough money for the upgrade that you want to purchase!

What Can You Upgrade In Camp?

There are three main aspects in the camp which you will need to keep in check, these are: medicine, provisions, and food. Upgrading these in camp will keep supplies up to sustain your camp!
