If they are NiMH batteries, they will lose 1% to 2% of their charge daily.

As others have said, rechargeable batteries will slowly lose their charge, even if you are not using them. Also, is it possible that they are bumping into metal objects in your case? If so, this can very quickly sap the charge as you may be shorting the contacts of the batteries. Put them in a small plastic case or a cloth pouch to prevent this from happening.

Bet they are Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) batteries. These type go flat sometimes in as little as a week when left.
I am also betting your camera uses Just two of these batteries. Cameras that use 4 or cameras that use Dedicated Lithium Ion battery packs tend to do better.
Only option for you is to see whether your camera can use the Kodak CR3 battery pack. Otherwise you can try Lithium single use batteries, they last a long time, but they are wickedly expensive.

Rechargeable batteries hold a little less each time you recharge them until eventually they hold nothin. Time for new batteries bro.

Rechargable batters only have a certain life span they may need to be changed. Or your charger could be broken.

They lose their charge gradually over time even if they're not being used.
