If you have your phone setup with Bluetooth key shouldn't the car always unlock if the phone is in the car? Unless that is disabled in camp mode or something.

I just got back from a week long camping trip at some National Parks and this was my EXACT fear. I always kept the physical key card (I also wear the Tesla ring) on top of the armrest when going to bed in the event that we 1. Opened the door in a daze, triggering the alarm; it allowed us to avoid trying to figure out how to shut off the alarm. 2. Grab the keycard whenever we had to go to the bathroom or walk the dogs.

something is definately disarmed in camp mode because key card and phone in car would normaly never allow it to lock

I do some winter camping and am at isolated trailheads sometimes... this is why I have taped a keycard to the outside of the car, though it would be a pain to get to the keycard, I figure it might save my life at some point! Also consider getting a tesla-able rfid ring to wear when camping.
