About Royal Rangers
Submitted by Royal Rangers on June 18, 2008 - 8:25am
Royal Rangers is a Christian boys scouting group that is held at the Batavia Assembly of God on Wednesday at 700pm-830pm. The boys work on merits and advancements and there is an emphasis on the bible, to earn the top award, The Gold Medal of Achievement. There are groups for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. This program has been around since 1962 and is an international organization. We have many activities planned throughout the year. We go camping at least 5 times a year, we have father and son events and many other fun activities. We also go to leadership camps for the boys to help them be able to take charge of the classes. If you have any questions please call the church at 343-8521. You can also visit the State web site for Royal Rangers at http://nyroyalrangers.org/
In our group we have many families who can not afford to go to the campouts and leadership camps. The leadership camp costs $100.00 and most of the families can not afford it. Some local business, organizations and people have seen the benfits of advesting into the boys of this community and have helped pay the cost for the boys to go to the leadership camps. PetMart, Kiwanis Clup, First Choice Travel, the Batavia Police Benevolent Association, the Deputy Sheriff;s Association, the Batavia Fire Fighters Union, and Viola Hale all have invested in the boys of this community. Thank you so very much.
