The Delinquent's Camp (also referred to as The Dropship or The Camp) is a palisade built around the Dropship that brought the 100 down to Earth. It is a major location in the first season and a minor location in the second and third seasons.

The camp was scorched in the wake of the Trikru attack on it. The dropship and walls remain in place, but most of the rest of the camp either burned or has been recovered, and is currently uninhabited.

Throughout the series

After the Delinquents landed on Earth they made camp around the Exodus ship. Once they realized that they were living near hostile Grounders, they built a stake-wall around the camp, turning it into a palisade. They also built tunnels and secret passageways for the delinquents to use to remain hidden from their enemies. On the walls of the camp, Gunners kept watch as an extra defense for the camp.

In "Contents Under Pressure," the camp is hit by a hurricane as contact with the Ark is finally reestablished. The Delinquents are able to survive by taking cover in the dropship, but the camp itself is wrecked by the hurricane with a tree being slammed into the dropship, resulting in branches breaking through the metal into the interior of the lower floor. After the storm is over, Bellamy promises that they will rebuild the wrecked camp.

In "We Are Grounders (Part 2)," the camp is abandoned when the Delinquents decide to retreat to the sea. When Grounder scouts attack, they withdraw back to the camp and defend their home. They use the remaining rocket fuel on the dropship to burn the attacking Grounders, killing 300 Grounders in the battle. When they leave the safety of the dropship, they were ambushed by Mountain Men who gas the surviving Delinquents and take them away to Mount Weather in a troop transport vehicle.[1]

In the "The 48," it's revealed that Raven is still alive at the camp, left on the abandoned dropship. Raven kills a surviving Grounder, freeing Murphy who he had been holding captive. Alone, the two remain on the dropship where Murphy does his best to treat Raven's injuries. After Kane and Abby with Bellamy and Finn arrive at the camp, they take Raven and Murphy to Camp Jaha. Abby writes a message on the wall, informing Clarke of their location 22km away. The camp is then left fully empty of residents.

After being vacated, several groups continued to pass through, using the camp as a way station. In "Many Happy Returns," Clarke and Anya stop at the dropship on their way from Mount Weather to Camp Jaha. Later, in "Long Into an Abyss," Lincoln is treated there while he is still a Reaper and the group tries to figure out how to save him. In "Spacewalker," Clarke, Bellamy, Raven, and Murphy, use the dropship and camp to try to protect Finn from the Grounders. In "Survival of the Fittest," Murphy returns with Jaha to show him his son's grave. Jaha uses the camp as a meeting place for any other Sky People who wished to join him on his journey to the City of Light.

In "Nevermore," Monty and Octavia return to the dropship to get an electromagnet to finish Sinclair's EMP. The two are ambushed near the dropship by the A.L.I.E.-controlled Hannah Green and Monty is forced to kill his mother to save Octavia.

The Dropship

The drop ship after first landing

The Delinquents' dropship was launched from the Ark with all 100 Delinquents and Bellamy Blake. It was intended to land on Mount Weather but landed twenty miles away on the wrong mountain. In the rough landing, it lost communications with the Ark, leaving the Delinquents' wristbands as the only form of monitoring the Earth's habitability. The Delinquents then established their Camp around the dropship and used it as a shelter. Some of the dropship's systems appeared to still be operational as the Delinquents were able to tie their flares into the dropship's batteries for power and Monty planned to patch the wristbands through the dropship's communications system to contact the Ark via Morse code. As seen in "Contents Under Pressure," Raven Reyes was able to restore power to the dropship's lighting system by running cables from the solar panels on the roof into the interior.

Notes and Trivia

  • The Camp was built around the dropship that brought the 100 and Bellamy to Earth.
  • Clarke Griffin suggests that the reason for the rough landing and presumably system failures that preceded it was the fact that everything on the ship was about a hundred years old.
    • Though Jacapo Sinclair in "Pilot" stated that the dropship suffered total system failure, it appears at least a few things continued working such as the retrorockets, though they fired late and the door control.
  • A graveyard was put in place outside the camp walls as a place to bury the dead.
  • This camp was the first camp made by the Sky People, the second being Arkadia.
  • The camp did not appear in Season Four nor Season Five. However, it was mentioned by Bellamy Blake in "The Other Side".
  • Despite the Delinquents being sent down with no food supplies, they appeared to have been sent down with at least some other useful things that they utilized in the Camp. Battery-powered lanterns were used for light in some scenes, even before locations like Finn's bunker were found. They also had cloth to build their tents, though this may have come from the dropship's parachutes. While Wells Jaha crafted his own backpack out of stuff found on the dropship, Clarke at least found a real backpack somewhere at the same time. The Delinquents made use of the dropship's chairs for seats around the camp.
    • At least some of the things they crafted likely came from knowledge gained during Charles Pike' Earth Skills class. As seen in "Etherea," Bellamy is capable of weaving an entire sturdy rope by himself.
  • After Raven Reyes arrived, she was able to restore power to the interior lighting system as seen in "Contents Under Pressure."
