General Camping FAQ's

In our experience it is best for parents not to contact campers during camp as this may trigger emotions that make then homesick. In case of emergencies only, you can call the camp office at 715.258.8420. Also try your Outpost Leader’s cell number, but reception is highly unreliable in the camp area.

Although very seldom, accidents do happen. Minor incidents will be treated by staff with American Red Cross training in first aid. All campers have to turn in medical information with their registration that allows camp staff to act on parent’s behalf during a medical emergency. The emergency contact(s) listed on this form will be contacted immediately and if necessary, your son will be transported to Riverside Medical Center in Waupaca.

Camp Wilderness has modern flush toilet and private hot shower facilities available to all campers, including Frontiersman Campers. Bring your own towel and toiletries.

Registering for any district camp just got a whole lot easier!

  • Set up an account for your family. All your camp info and forms are saved in one convenient place!
  • Fill out your medical forms once, and you're set. Of course, you can go back and edit your information at any time.
  • Enroll in the camps your family members plan to attend and we'll hold a space for you. Pay for events individually or all at once whenever you're ready. (Of course, we require at least partial payment before you're considered registered for camp).
  • When you enroll, your Outpost is notified. Contact Doris if you need registration reports emailed to your outpost.
  • Leaders, if you're serving on staff at a camp, get with the comp coordinator. He may have a discount code for you.

The predominant meeting place for Royal Rangers occurs within churches (or Outposts); however outdoor events run by WNMD Rangers provide boys with an opportunity to network with other like-minded boys, giving them practical experience in leadership development.

Right next door to Spencer Lake is Camp Wilderness – a Royal Rangers campground and training center, complete with modern facilities, an amphitheater and sports facilities geared to reach young men for Christ. Click for driving directions

Each chartered outpost has a camp site allocated to them, which they are expected to maintain and make improvements on. Every year, all the outposts get together for a Work Day where the morning is spent on general camp projects leaving the afternoon for outpost camp maintenance projects. Outposts failing to participate stand the chance of losing their camp ground to an outpost that can put it to better use so please help out as best you can. This camp is run by volunteers, like YOU.
