The Royal Rangers Curriculum

Royal Rangers utilizes a combination of print and electronic curriculum components to achieve the optimum balance between flexibility and availability.  Most of our curriculum is made available online through TRaCclub, our online resource delivery system, while some components are available in print or e-book format for ease of use.

TRaCclub

TRaCclub includes a variety of materials primarily intended for use by local Royal Rangers leaders.  However, boys or families may purchase memberships to TRaCclub as well if they choose to use the curriculum at home, outside of the regular weekly meeting.  Many families use the Royal Rangers curriculum as part of their home schooling program as a means to further enhance their son’s education through the diversity of fun, hands-on skills.  Others purchase memberships to help their son complete materials he may have missed in class or to complete additional work at home.  In any respect, TRaCclub includes everything you need to teach the Royal Rangers curriculum.

TRaCclub currently includes…

  • Weekly Meeting Guides – an outline for weekly Royal Rangers meetings
  • Skill Merit Activity Guides – material for teaching and learning content on a specific subjects such as archery, backpacking, auto mechanics, model rocketry, or basketball.
  • Bible Lessons – written specifically for today’s boy and young man, these Bible lessons serve as the core of the Royal Rangers discipleship process and serve as the focal point of the weekly Royal Rangers meeting
  • Leadership Merits – provide instruction on leadership and teamwork skills, with application projects to be completed by your group
  • A variety of other resources such as award artwork, record keeping materials, supplies checklists, and additional devotions.

Additional Resources Needed

In addition to curriculum, we recommend that your program utilize some form of uniform to help in promoting your program and to provide your leaders and boys with a group identity and a sense of membership in the program.  These items may also serve as a platform for enabling individuals to display their accomplishments in the program.  Uniforms may be as simple or elaborate as you chose, based on a variety of options available to you.  Please visit our uniforms page for details.
