Anything you read on the Internet (including this and any other response here on Ask.com) should warrant skepticism before anything else. But, yes, Boo is right about actual FEMA camps. As to how they figure into some of the apocalyptic conspiracy scenarios being peddled on the Internet, it is my view that conspiracy theories are most often started by people who want their egos stroked by getting gullible people to think they are privy to special knowledge that most people -- people who consider themselves intelligent, critical thinkers -- don't have. Some do this intentionally and some actually believe their own conspiracies and refuse to evaluate them critically for fear they will no longer be convinced and feel special.
The Internet is full of wacky conspiracy theories. This one I have an extremely difficult time believing this one. It's next to impossible to separate the truth from nonsense. There isn't a non biased media or news outlet. Every news source is biased. I don't know what to believe anymore.
Yes, they are set up in places like New Orleans after Katrina for people whose homes/towns are wiped out. Mostly a bunch of trailers but it holds them over until they can rebuild/find a new place. Anything else is just stupid conspiracy theories. Nobody sensible believes them.
