What can I expect as an adventure Ranger?
Adventure Rangers have more opportunities as they naturally mature and build on their skills that they have learnt. Along with having the chance to do more adventurous activities like archery and learn how to use a map and compass, Royal Rangers learn to construct shelters, benches and are taught to cook over a fire.
For this age group Royal Rangers concentrate on team building as they learn to assess what talents they have and how they fit into a team. For them to practise this skill within a fun environment it can be a real benefit and boost for their self-confidence.
Whenever there is the opportunity, a devotion as an Adventure Ranger can take place outdoors around a fire.
