During the week of July 31 – Aug. 4, 2007, an estimated 5,000 Royal Rangers from all over Europe traveled to Lillehammer, Norway for EuroCamp. This special event takes place every 4 years and is similar to National Camporama in the USA, but instead of boys coming together from the 50 states, boys and girls gather from 23 nations across Europe.
During the day, Rangers will participate in sports and compete against each other in activities designed to test their outdoor skills and use their God given talents. Many workshops and craft stations are offered that allow Rangers to exercise their creativity through various artistic means.
Special services were held each evening and were the spiritual highlight of the camp. Rangers enjoyed worship bands composed of their own peers, had the opportunity to express themselves through drama, and hear challenging messages from God’s word. The services were conducted in English, but translation is available through headsets into the many languages used throughout Europe. Historically, many young people give their hearts to the Lord, or are motivated to a deeper Christian walk during these services.
