You can run Camel in a gazillion ways (see
You can run it as a standalone java app. You can also embed it somewhere (even in an ActiveMQ
server if I remember right).

If you go with option 1, you could use servicemix or fabric8. Servicemix comes as a nice complete
bundle with Camel+AMQ+CXF+whatnot, that is tested to work together. 
Fabric8 should be the same.
DonĀ“t know if that is too much of overhead for your use case.
And referencing a remote broker is fine. The less moving parts - the less maintenance (nightmare).

Cheers, Thomas.
