Does anyone here live in South Eastern Michigan...if so where are some good fields?
Check out crossfire creek, and lonewolf. Crossfire Creek is my home field and is great IMO. Get onto pbreview.com and check out all the fields close to your area.

Ambushing is a tactic that requires some actual knowledge of enemy troop movement. Sitting in a bush for twenty minutes so that you can one-ball the only guy playing because you were lucky enough for him to wander near you is just plain camping. The military doesn't send snipers out into the bush to lay there and wait, hoping an enemy will wander past. The are given an actual objective, a target that is likely to be in that place at that time.
You need to play games with some sort of objective. Centerflag is the poop. Even without a time limit, it will not only cut down on campers, but it will teach them how to play ambush more effectively.
The goal is to take a flag from the center of the field and proceed to your opponents' base. So, from the break most of your team will head straight for the middle to secure the flag, as will your opponent. You'll probably send a couple of guys to the right or left (whichever is the high ground of the flag area) to flank, and one or two to the other side as 'ambush'. The first few times they do this, they'll camp. But the more often you play this, the more 'conflict zones' will get broken in, as will trails. The guys that sit and do nothing will start to learn that they're not benefitting their team unless they're up and moving. While they sat there through the whole game, it ended without them contributing a thing.
And if you wanna play speedball, get some buddies together, split gas, and go up to Atomix. Trust me, it's well worth it. One of the best indoors in the country.

Truth of the matter is, sometimes you have to camp too. Anything it takes (LEGALLY) to win, is what ya have to stoop to. Usually, I'm very honorable. I don't cheapshot people (e.x. Ask them for a paintcheck, then plug them point blank when trying to flank them.) I don't lie about getting shot, and I usually don't pointblank shoot either. When I have to, I usually aim for the hopper, since it's the biggest damn thing on their gun.
Fact is, ya have to camp too, especially when they do. Either rush for an advantageous point during a game, or wait, then flank them when they do. I've found an excellent camping spot for free for alls at our local woodsball field. A nice rocky outcrop with about three large boulders, two set together, and one two feet from them. Next to the two boulders is an old dead tree, giving a little bit of extra protection and a nice place to brace yourself and lean around. To top it all off, it's in a ditch sort of, so if anybody's walking along the ridge, jump up and shoot 'em! I single handedly won the last FFA game we played there by using those rocks for cover. Good cover is good insurance.
If they camp, you do it too. Especially if you don't play timed games like us, then they'll be forced to move.
