Get READY for a new Adventure

To better prepare the boy for the Ranger Academy, Rangers Training Camp is offered to boys 9 to 11 years old, but it is not a requirement for earning his Saber. During his overnight stay, the Ranger will gain confidence in his camping skills, learn how to work as a patrol and rely on the unique abilities of every individual in the team.
