Frontiersman Camping Fellowship is the service arm of Royal Rangers. FCF is a unique opportunity for boys as well as men to continue their Ranger experience beyond the outpost level. The Potomac District is considered the Blue Ridge Chapter.
FCF depicts life in America before the year 1850. The Blue Ridge Chapter portrays life in the Colonies. Twice yearly, there is a gathering of FCF'ers to demonstrate their skills and claim bragging rights in competitions such as: Tomahawk and Knife throwing, Flint and Steel, Fire building, Dutch Oven Cooking, Archery, Black Powder shooting and more.
FCF is living history of early American Life. Members and visitors alike revel in the atmosphere of the one of a kind Weary Traveler Inn where there is always good food and great fellowship. We welcome local school, church and home school groups to tour our camp and enjoy the flavor of the times.
Each FCF member is encouraged to develop an early American Craft or Skill. Here in the Blue Ridge Chapter, we have craftsmen and artisans who specialize in: Blacksmithing, Primitive Bow and Arrow making, Trapping and Tanning, 17th and 18th Century Tailoring, Bead work and many others.
The main purpose of FCF is to serve. Service projects to the Church and in the community is a priority. In addition, mission trips are planned through Pathfinders. Pathfinders is open to the FCF membership where missions trips are taken to remote area's of foreign Countries. Pathfinders go to these remote locations to build churches, schools, improve infrastructure and minister to the local population.
FCF… Truly a unique experience, full of challenge, adventure and fellowship.

No back-year payment is due any longer. Only the current year is required.
