Although National Camporama is a Royal Rangers USA event, we always welcome and appreciate our international Royal Rangers participants. The Royal Rangers program is currently active in nearly 100 nations of the world and we’re always excited to have our fellow Rangers from around the world join us for Camporama.
International guest are encouraged to register online if possible. A print application is also available. Due to the additional costs associated with international travel, international guests will receive the early registration rate of $345 regardless of the date on which their application is received. However, all registrations must still be received by the final registration deadline of June 15, 2022. No registrations will be accepted after that date.
Women may attend National Camporama as registered campers provided they are part of an international delegation. Since this is an event for young men, women and young ladies should wear appropriately modest attire during the event.
Camping Gear & Facilities
Due to the challenges of bringing camping gear on international flights, international guests will be provided with limited camping gear for use during National Camporama. This gear will include a tent and cot, as well as a large tent for common use by all international guests. Basic cooking gear will also be available in the common tent for use as desired.
Please note that no other housing options will be available at Camporama. If you are unable to stay in a tent during this event for medical or other reasons you will need to make other arrangements for housing and transportation. Contact Royal Rangers International for assistance in identifying other housing options in the Eagle Rock area.
Showers and restrooms will be available near the international campsite. However, electricity and laundry facilities will not be available.
Shuttle service will be provided to and from the Springfield-Branson National Airport (SGF) or the Greyhound Bus station at 2425 East Kearney Street, Springfield, Missouri 65803. If you are planning to arrive via either of these locations please contact RRI to arrange transportation to the camp. If you plan to arrive by any other airport or bus station, you will need to make other arrangements for transportation.

Visiting with USA Campers
International delegates will have the opportunity to visit with USA campers at a special international pavilion in the activities area. You are encouraged to meet fellow Royal Rangers from the USA at this pavilion and the other common areas of the camp. Please note, however, that the international encampment is off limits to USA campers. The USA campsites are likewise off limits to international delegates. Visiting with USA campers is therefore limited to the international pavilion or the other common areas of the camp.
Each delegation is encouraged to bring an ink stamp representing their nation for use in stamping the notebooks of the campers visiting the international pavilion in the activities area.
Consumption of alcohol or the use of tobacco products is prohibited at all times at National Camporama. No alcohol or tobacco products are allowed on Camp Eagle Rock’s property. No exceptions are allowed. Products offered for sale are restricted to the vendor’s row or camp store.
The General Council informed our office on August 30, 2021, they will reassess how the organization handles the submissions of the Assumption of Risk for adults and the Parental Consent Authorization for minors. Therefore, due to circumstance beyond our control, registration for National Camporama will not open September 1, 2021. At this time, we have not been given a definitive date as to when we will be able to open registration.
Special pricing is available to all chartered Royal Rangers groups. Details can be found on the registration page. Registration fees were published here in April. Please go to the Registration page to see that fee schedule. We will post additional documents to assist with the new registration process as soon as they are complete.
