Junior Leadership Training Camp and Advanced Junior Leadership Training Camps are approaching fast…..around the first week of August. So far about 25 young men have participated over the last two years. At these camps, Rangers 6th grade and higher are introduced to junior leadership roles, further their spiritual development, plan and lead worship activities, and just have fun!!!!
See the attached announcement and application documents for information about the camp as well as registration information. Please email me to let me know that your Ranger will attend either the Junior Training Camp (graduates of 6th grade who have not completed JTC) or Advanced Junior Training Camp (graduates of JTC). Call/text me if you have any questions. Don’t delay!
JTC and AJTC Registrations will be approximately $150. These training camps are part of the National Royal Ranger program that are being offered in South Carolina as part of the Trail of the Saber.
Ranger Commanders/Leaders, we can always use more help in conducting these camps whether you have 1 day or 4 days. Give me a call to learn more. You will be blessed.
Yours in Christ,
SC District Junior Leadership Training Coordinator

2019 South Carolina Royal Rangers District Derby Results
The new 6 lane aluminum track made its debut at the 33rd annual South Carolina Royal Ranger District Derby Race. By all accounts it was a great addition to our annual derby. We had 67 competitors this year which was down a bit from last year, but we completed racing and the trophy presentation in just over an hour and a half. All indications are the derby was a great success enjoyed by all who were in attendance. If you missed it make sure you are in attendance for a special 2020 race event with others in our region.

The Ranger Kids Overnighter was a great success! Commander Charity and her ‘Hobbit’ friends had lots of neat events, while Commander Jesse presented the Gospel with a “Lord of the Rings” themed skit. Everyone went home with something special, a sack with some gems, a walking stick, and more. Tell all your friends what they’ve missed out on and be sure that they plan to attend next year’s event!
