My nephew was 7 when he went over night with his boy scout troop... they weren't camping though.
I think it depends on the kid and the adults who will be there also on what exactly will be going on during this overnight camp.
My youngest son went at 8 for a week at a time with weekends back home. The older kids had no desire when they were younger-they all went to daycamps.
My oldest daughter at 13 went to Japan for 4 weeks with her school for a homestay/study program.
