Discovery Rangers is a fun, activity-based church ministry for boys in Third to Fifth grade. You will participate in weekly small group meetings under the leadership of capable men who will deliver the seven experiences of Royal Rangers to help shape your character:
DO fun activities.
GROW in your relationship with God.
LEARN new things in interactive ways.
BELONG to a wholesome community of godly men.
LEAD yourself and influence others.
SERVE others selflessly.
Rangers is fun and meaningful so you will enjoy yourself with great friends and adult leaders who will guide and support you on your journey to becoming a Christlike leader. Rangers meet weekly at an Assembly of God church in your area. There you will earn badges that will teach you skills from how to use an axe to being a junior leader in your church and community. As you advance, you will be given more responsibility that will boost your confidence and leadership abilities.
Your church will let you know what uniform they prefer, but most Rangers your age wear a utility shirt on which they proudly display their patches.
You will also need a Discovery Rangers handbook in which your leaders can mark off your progress and where you can read up more about what you need to learn.
We also encourage you to bring your Bible and $1 collection (called dues) to your weekly meetings.
As a guy, you'd often like to bring show-and-tell items. This is a great way to share your interests and build relationships with others, but have your parents review these items beforehand to ensure its okay.
What events can I take part in?
Camps and Events, sponsored by the district include Discovery Training Camp (DTC), designed to teach you leadership skills and how to operate as a team go to the Academy Section for more info on this. Ranger Summer Camp is hugely popular with Discovery Rangers! You will camp as an outpost at the Rangers-owned Camp Wilderness campground where you will enjoy activities such as swimming, sports, monkey ball, paintball and much more! Tap the Summer Camp icon on the home page for more information and registration.
Your Outpost will also have events like Ranger Derby car races, church lock-ins and sports camps planned for you at the local group level. Just remember: Royal Rangers is a series of experiences where you do fun things and learn new skills. The best experiences aren't confined to a meeting room.
How does a Ranger behave?
As a Ranger, you will live by a code that defines you. By being Alert, Clean, Honest, Courageous, Loyal, Courteous, Obedient, and Spiritual we share our confidence and God's love with others. You stand out and attract others by being a man of God.
