Friendship.Healthy outposts provide ongoing opportunities for leaders and boys to develop strong supportive, Christ-centered relationships through side-by-side activities. These relationships can be the primary attraction to most boys and can become the avenue through which ministry tkaes place.
Activities. Health outposts provide a diverse program of year-round activities that includes something from each of our core competencies: outdoors, sports, trade skills, technology, and arts. Each activity serves to develop skill and build confidence in boys and serves as the vehicle around which relationships are build.
Advancement System. Healthy outposts insure that everything they do accomplishes the core purpose of Royal Rangers – to build boys into Christlike men. The advancement system represents a structured and intentional process of development that includes skill development (i.e. confidence building) spirtitual growth, and leadership. The goal of the system is not only to hand out medals, but also to develop Christlike manhood in the hearts and minds of boys.
Uniforms. Healthy outposts see every boy as a valuable part of the team. They work hard to establish a place where the boy is welcomed, valued and wanted. Uniforms help to make every boy feel like he's part of something big.
Interactive Learning. Healthy outposts know that fun meetings and activities are a core requirement for thier success. Fun meetings are ones where the boys are directly involved, participating in the action rather than just watching and listening. Boys eagerly participate because they want to, not because they have to. The tell, show, teach method works best to this end.
Patrol System. In order for boys to develop as Servant Leaders, they must be given the opportunity to lead. Boys themselves need to be involved in planning activities, running meetings, preparing the next event and moving the outpost toward its stated objective.
Service & Ministry Outreach. Healthy outposts are contantly looking for ways to to make a real impact on thier community. Thier goal is not only to build Royal Rangers, but also to build our churches and communities as well. through the service projects and leadership merits, and other avenues, healthy outposts are ready to serve, challenging boys to live out thier faith in real and valuable ways.
