Hi Yatin, `get_wordcamp()` (singular) would retrieve a complete set of 
data on a specific WordCamp, while `get_wordcamps()` (plural) would 
retrieve a minimal set of data about all WordCamps.

since this my project does not require excellent php knowledge , do you 
think my lack in this respect will hamper my chances of getting selected 
in GSoC ?

The PHP requirement is highly relevant for most GSoC projects, but the 
mobile app is probably an exception to that. Having PHP experience 
wouldn't hurt, but I'm guessing that whoever mentors that project will 
be looking mostly at your experience with mobile development.
