After landing safely and setting up "camp," the boys contemplate the desirable lifestyle of pirates. But after Huck has drifted off to sleep and the campfire dies down. THe camp setting serves as an escape from the world of rules and even the violence of men. Camping becomes a metaphor for freedom and even a sense of hanging on to their innocence.
