This may sound weird, but we had a polka band at our wedding, and everyone danced up a storm.  Everyone can dance to the polka.  For fun maybe throw in a few polka tunes, like "In Heaven There Is No Beer" (you may want to think about the theological implications, though  ;)).  Here are some dance classics:  https://www.weddingmuseum.com/weddingblog/wedding-song-lists/best-polka-songs/

This is the band that played at our wedding:  http://www.polkacide.com/  A hit with conservative relatives from rural areas and with urban hipster friends alike.

How about Snowball
Two people start dancing every time someone calls out "Snowball" all the dancers are to separate from their partner and grab a new one off the sidelines ( or once everyone is dancing just a different partner.

I'm going to POD this one.  My family went to an Oktoberfest, and I was pleasantly surprised at the wide range of people who enjoyed the dancing.  Especially for the chicken dance, which is a pretty easy to learn.  The best part about that song is everyone looks silly when they do the dance.  That makes it easy to jump in and just do it.
For a non-polka song, the electric slide seems to go over well for large groups of various dance abilities.  I would also think that children's games that are musical could be fun: Hokey Pokey, Limbo, Dance Style Simon Says.
I'll get there.  Eventually.

Oh, I like that one.

Still enjoying the suggestions from others - the camp is in three weeks, so I'm in the midst of putting my song list together.
