The Expedition camp is designed to not take up too much of your valuable investigation time, while also providing a nice place to help your friends who are down on their luck. In theory this will keep everyone in the game, rather than having the effect of one Investigator getting all the items and trophies. While others sit with nothing and are unable to get stuff to help them complete Adventures and actually get stuff. I'm a fan of ES, but this is the one aspect of the game that I've always felt needed attention: it really rankles that in a co-op game there's a "the rich get richer..." effect - it can be so bad that you can view it as a "runaway leader" issue. It's not too bad when playing solo, but with other players at the table it truly sucks.
