Our Methods

  • Boys love sports where they are a valued member. We offer a wide variety of sports merits where boys can be "hands on" and can apply their leadership qualities.

  • Whether paddling upstream or tying knots that last, the outdoors is one of God's greatest teaching environments to build long lasting relationships.

  • Modeling practical skills that allow Rangers to take on "guy" tasks helps them know that they have what it takes to be a man. Empower the boy at your side.

  • Whether you are designing, building, or playing with technology, guys just like gadgets. Use technology as a tool we can use to relate to the next generation of boys.

  • Utilizing arts at any age gives men an opportunity to mentor young men on skills and spend time with them discussing testimonies and sharing Christ.

What if men of God took the opportunity to spend time side by side with boys and young men, teaching them about photography and videography? What if your boys taught men how to utilize social media and photoshop? Mentoring can take place in any setting! All it requires is a student and a learner. Technology is a vast  industry and their are too many jobs to count!
 
Our district utilizes all five activities to meet the unique needs of each church represented at our district wide summer camp, including:
  • outdoor skills
  • sports
  • trades
  • technologies
  • arts
 
Don't let that be the only time your kids are exposed to these exciting activities, you can use them too! Teaching Ranger Kids using laptops or tablets can be much more engaging and will help hone their attention and settle their little bodies. While the national Royal Rangers office is preparing new merits all the time, feel free to utilize your skills and talents (or those of your boys!) to come up with a five week lesson all your own! So go ahead, start planning your next technology merit today!  These merits listed below are a sample from TRaCclub and can be viewed in detail with a paid subscription.
