Camel has a strong connection to the element of water, it will gorge on water when it discovers an oasis in the midst of the desert. It does not drink enormous amounts of water out of greed, but because of its survival instincts. Camel doesn't know how many days or weeks may pass before it finds another watering hole and is merely restocking its body's reserves. When camel appears it could be a reminder to take care of your needs, also to take only what you can carry. You may want to take inventory of your pantry or food stuffs as well, the camel showing up could be warning you to stock up for leaner times ahead.
The camel is a beast of burden which has been put to service to carry people and their belongings across desolate regions. A person with camel as their personal totem often chooses a career of service to others, helping to lift burdens from the weak, crippled, or sick. The camel person has the challenge of learning how to help others without giving to much of themselves. Giving too much is the final straw that breaks the camel's back.
