The premier leadership training event for boys in Royal Rangers is Junior Leadership Development Academy (JLDA). No where else in their Royal Rangers experience will they encounter such quality and focused leadership training. With a Spirit-led staff full of experienced, godly men, each young man will walk away a stronger servant leader and ready to serve others in their church, family, outpost and community with a strong sense of purpose.
To equip today's leaders, we offer 4 different levels of leadership training (listed below) and one outdoor-focused skills camp.
Cost: Each camp is $149 per chartered boy ($175 for boys who are unchartered) and includes 4 shirts and all meals. The cost for leaders who are serving on staff is $80.
Registration: The red button will take you to the registration portal. Choose which camp your boy will participate in. Junior Academy and adult staff will register via the Junior Academy registration button.
Reporting Times: Staff and Junior Academy arrive by 8pm on Tuesday. JLDA Campers arrive by 9am Thursday for registration check-in (registration closes at 10am). Graduation ceremony is at 3:30pm on Sunday followed by cleanup and dismissal.
Ranger Training Camp (RTC) is for boys who have graduated the 4th grade but are not yet in the 7th grade. RTC prepares boys to serve as junior leaders in a boy-led, adult-facilitated outpost. This exciting camp will introduce them to FCF (Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship), discover their God-given talents and strengths, learn how to add value to any group they are a part of and be challenged to take on new responsibilities!
Junior Training Camp (JTC) is for boys that have at least graduated 7th grade. JTC focuses on leadership skills used in the local outpost and group. Young men will focus on God's plan for their life and see how they are developing the skills and talents God has given them as a servant leader. They will be asking, "Do I have what it takes to be a godly man?" JTC is required to attend AJTC and Junior Academy in the future.
Advanced Junior Training Camp (AJTC) is for boys who have completed JTC and have graduated from the eighth grade. Boys are taught skills that build upon what they learned at JTC including understanding leadership roles in their local church, understanding God's plan through the lens of our "Adventure, Character and Task", evaluating how they are developing their own godly character, what they are doing to serve others and if they are following God's plan for their life.
Junior Academy (JA) and Staff - If you are graduate of AJTC or a current Royal Rangers Leader we would very much like you to serve on staff at this year's JLDA. There is a separate application for adult staff members. Please contact Ken Porter for more information.
Outdoors Skills Camp - This will be an action-packed merit camp focusing on skills that are difficult to master in many outpost settings. Merits planned include: First Aid Skills, Compass, Rope Craft, Fire Craft, Lashing, Dutch Oven Cooking, Camp Safety, Camping, Primitive Shelters, Nature Study and Backpacking.
