TRaCclub: The Rangers Curriculum Club
TRaCclub is an acronym for "The Rangers Curriculum club," a system of online curriculum that includes meeting plans and merit teaching materials for Royal Rangers meetings. TRaCclub replaces our older printed materials (Leaders Guides, Merit References, and boy's Workbooks) and enables local Royal Rangers leaders to plan and conduct weekly meetings with the ultimate degree of flexibility while utilizing the most up-to-date materials at a minimal cost.
Structure & Content
TRaCclub consists of five "tracks"--each one providing all the materials necessary to operate a specific age group of the program--Ranger Kids, Discovery Rangers, Adventure Rangers, and Expedition Rangers. A track for leaders is also available and provides a variety of additional resources to equip and empower local leaders for success. Each track is provided on an annual membership basis. Individuals may purchase memberships to as many or as few tracks as they need. Each GROUP track includes materials, such as:
- Weekly meeting guides that provide a framework for the entire meeting (replaces the printed Leaders Guides)
- Merit lesson plans (including skill, leadership, and Bible merits) or achievement award lessons specific to that group (replaces the printed Leaders Merit References)
- Boy's worksheets for all merits where worksheets are used (replaces the printed Workbooks for boys)
The LEADERS track includes a variety of supplemental materials for leaders. A complimentary 2-year membership to the Leaders track is included with the purchase of the new Leader Manual by simply entering the unique code found on the inside back cover. This track includes material, such as:
- Junior Leadership Foundations, the new local-level junior leader training program
- Devotions for weekly meeting or special events
- Program ideas for Councils of Achievement
- Program planning forms and information
NOTE: The Royal Rangers Leader Manual and all boys' Handbooks will continue to be produced in printed format and are not a part of TRaCclub.
TRaCclub includes a large amount of completely new material as well as great deal of revised content, including:
- Twenty-four completely new brown Bible merits, written specifically to enable leaders to facilitate the development of boys and young men into Christlike manhood
- Leadership merits for Discovery, Adventure, and Expedition Rangers groups
- New merits such as Bible Reading, Global Missions, Budget & Finance, and Citizenship
- Revised merits, featuring more hands-on learning and fewer worksheets with less writing
