Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship (FCF) is a special group of Royal Ranger boys and men that uses early American frontier reenactment as the framework for additional mentorship in primitive outdoor camping and becoming servant leaders. The primitive camping skills also prepare some for optional participation in missions trips to areas that require those skills. Using the lore of the 1750-1840 frontier, FCF members are challenged to compete with and demonstrate their special skills at most regular Royal Ranger campouts as well as their own specialized campouts reserved only for FCF members, but all to further the objectives of Royal Rangers by giving and serving.
