I use D'Addario Light strings on my acoustic guitar and they tend to rust within about a week to 2 weeks and it is actually quite annoying. Is this natural or what is causing this?

Could be the environment you're storing your guitar in. Try storing the guitar in a case, or maybe even gettin a dehumidifier.

Playing alot reduces rust if you are only picking your guitar up once a week this could happen. Also try using elixir nanoweb strings they are the new elixir strings and they have a nanoweb coat on them to reduce rust and friction on the strings. and they sound pretty good too.

I love elixir strings, I also use them and the tone lasts much longer than regular strings. They sound sweet, and although pricey are very much worth it in my opinion.

eh personally to me elixers sound plastic, i like dean markley alchemies, they are very nice strings (again, personal preference). regardless of what type of strings you are using, try getting a thing of Fast Fret (look it up on musicians friend) to wipe your strings with, it makes them last much longer without rust and helps to preserve their tonal quality as well. hope this helped

It has nothing to do with brand of string.

It's now summer and there is a lot of humidity in the air. Once I came home from camp and my guitar was just sitting on the stand and the strings were rusty as hell.

You need to keep it in a case or at least place it face down on some sort of blanket or a bed or something.

I would keep it in a case.
