In order to ensure that you are adequately prepared to make the most of your Camporama experience, please take note of the following information. Additional details will be added as they become available. Please check back frequently for updates.

Arrival & Departure
Gates to the campgrounds will open at 1:00 pm on Sunday, July 19th. Outposts may enter, complete the onsite check-in process, and begin setting up camp at that time. The first meal provided will be dinner on Sunday night. The camp will officially conclude on Friday morning with breakfast being the last meal served. The camp will close at 9:00 pm. All outposts are asked to be off the property by that time.
Meals & Snacks
Camporama registration includes all meals, beginning with dinner on Sunday, July 19th and ending with breakfast on Friday, July 24th. A complete list of meals to be provided each day will be provided here once it is available. Individuals with food allergies or dietary limitations are encouraged to bring their own meals to Camporama as alternative menu options will not be available.
Snack bars will be open during designated times to provide additional food options for campers or visitors.
Physical Conditions & Health Issues
Campers must be in good physical condition. Camporama is an outdoor, camping event conducted over a large area. Trails and roads are not paved, and only limited transportation will be available between areas of activity. Campers should, therefore, be prepared to walk considerable distances over uneven ground to fully participate in all events and activities.
All prescription medications must be registered with the Camp Hospital upon check-in. Some medications may be required to be kept at the hospital while others may be kept by the camper’s leader or parent in the campsites, depending on the medication or situation involved.
Handicap access is currently very limited at Camp Eagle Rock. Roads and trails are not paved, and buildings and restrooms may not accommodate wheelchair access.
An enclosed and manned charging station is available at each regional headquarters. These charging stations are for their region’s use. A check-in and check-out process has been established and will be followed by all individuals using these charging stations. Telephones and chargers for CPAP batteries take precedence over other electronics. To check your electronic device in you must have the full charging cord assembly attached to the device. There will be no sharing of cords or disconnecting someone else’s cord to connect to yours. A tag will be affixed to the charging cord to verify ownership at check-in and confirmation at check-out. Check with your region for the designated hours of operation for this service.
Due to the size of the camping areas we cannot provide power to individual tents or campsite. As such, all CPAP type machines must be brought with their own battery power (generators are not allowed to be brought by campers for their individual use). As noted above, each region will be providing a charging station. Same rules apply for CPAP units: to check your CPAP battery in for charging you must have the full charging assembly attached to the battery.
For example: If a car battery is used to power a CPAP, then the battery must be accompanied with a battery charger.
It is recommended that you put your name on your battery and charger. There will be no sharing of cords or disconnecting someone else’s charger to connect to another battery. A tag will be affixed to the charging cord to verify ownership at check-in and confirmation at check-out.
Limited telephone service will be available at the camp. Due to the mountainous terrain, cell phone coverage is generally weak. Detailed emergency contact numbers will be made available early next year.
The weather this time of year in Missouri is very hot. Typical summer weather shorts, camp t-shirts, etc. are the norm. Muscle shirts (sleeveless) are acceptable for men and boys to wear. Bathing suits must be modest for the camp setting (no Speedo’s). Sturdy walking shoes are strongly recommended. Shirts and shorts worn should be consistent with a Christian-based event.
Female visitors to camp are asked to dress modestly during their visit to Camp Eagle Rock.
Uniforms are not needed at Camporama. All campers will receive (2) camp t-shirts for use during the camp.
