UX seems to treat the concept of 'scamps' a little differently to other design disciplines, where the definition above seems spot-on. But UX people generally seem to use the term to mean something that sits conceptually in between a wireframe and a finished visual design - a wireframe with added visual design information, if you like.
They seem most useful in the context of developing additional layouts or functionality for an existing site, when it can be useful for the client to see mock-ups that have the header and footer and some of the design language they're expecting to see, but at short order.
