The Trail of the Saber is an award giving special recognition to boys who take full advantage of the junior leadership development opportunities available in their outpost and district. The award acknowledges the growth in servant leadership experienced in this process, starting in Discovery or Adventure Rangers and continuing through Expedition Rangers. Although this award may only be earned by boys, the award medal and ribbon may continue to be worn on the Royal Rangers uniform after a boy graduates into the ranks of adult leadership. (See order of wear)
The following requirements must be met before reaching 18 years of age in order to qualify for the Trail of the Saber award.
It should be noted that the Trail of the Saber award is represented on the uniform by a medal, ribbon, or patch and does not represent an actual saber. However, recipients may be presented with a saber as a symbol representing the award. For guidelines relating to the wearing of a saber with the uniform, please refer to our Saber Usage Parameters.
