What is Royal Rangers ?
Royal Rangers is a worldwide "Scouting" type organisation to over 73 countries. It caters for children and young teens (5-17 years of age) and encourages positive spiritual, social, mental and physical growth, and is designed to provide youth with challenging activities while providing them with Christian instruction. A camping theme has traditionally been at the heart of most activities, although other non-camping activities are included as well. The program includes a merit award system whereby Royal Rangers must demonstrate specific knowledge and abilities.
With God's help,
I will do my best to serve God, my church and my fellow man;
To live by the Ranger Code and make the Golden Rule, my daily rule.

Living together in the out-of-doors under proper guidance can instil qualities of

They learn that cooperation, with each other doing their part, is necessary for a safe,
comfortable experience. Being other-centred, rather than self-centred, is part of our
biblical heritage that we need to teach the children ( Proverbs 22:6 ). Good citizenship, as a way of life, comes through happy, satisfying,
personal participation which must begin with children if we expect them to grow into
Christian leaders who are willing to sacrifice for Christ and for their fellowman. Camping
experiences are natural opportunities for boys and girls to see the differences and
likenesses of other children with whom they come in contact. Camping creates a better
understanding amongst children. Living together in camping breaks down artificial
barriers, which may have stood between them because of family, economic, or cultural
