Special NeedsUnnamed

Those needing extra help to move about the Camporee grounds should contact their local conference youth director, who have access to golf carts. Individuals with special needs are permitted to bring one-seat personal electric convenience scooter, as long as it is designed for use by a single person and is used this way.

If you would like to rent a one-seat personal electric convenience scooter or wheelchair please visit Scootaround website.

The International Camporee does not endorse any business or companies renting equipment. 

See what services are provided for those with special needs.

Medical Breathing Devices (CPAP)

At each Camporee there are individuals that use special breathing machines while they sleep. We are suggesting you bring your own power source such as a battery pack breathing unit, as there is no special camping area just for breathing machines. A large percentage of the campground has electrical power outlets in camping areas.

Anyone with this type of need should contact Vern Byrd at vernbyrd@me.com for possible accommodations. If prior accommodations are not made, you will have to make your own arrangements to stay at a local hotel.

Services Not Provided

Private off-site excursions
Transportation to/from local air, bus, and rail station

Please contact the Special Needs Coordinator, with any questions.
