Junior Missions Camp
Junior Missions Camp (JMC) prepares the boys for home and world missions construction projects. Boys must have attended an Advanced JTC and have completed the ninth grade. Classes range from building walls to witnessing. Witnessing skills are taught and put to use in a visit to a local community or another ministry opportunity. Boys are taught fundamental construction skills to enable them to attend a missions trip.
Requirements: Must have completed the ninth grade and have completed JTC and AJTC. Trainee must have parents,sr. commander and pastor signatures to attend.
Note: This is a very physical camp, loading and unloading a semi trailer, lifting boxes. Offsite activities will take place at this camp. Instruction will take place at Camp Wilderness and offsite trips will go to plant city to participate in several outreach opportunities including delivering food to shut ins (with adult supervision) and participating in "back pack bash" (passing out back packs with school supplies).
Royal Rangers instructors form the critical link between local leaders and the various aspects of the program. Instructors provide valuable training to equip leaders for success in their various areas of responsibility. Currently each district oversees the process of certifying instructors to provide training in their district. The instructor certification process currently consists of two components—the Instructor Certification Seminar (ICS) and the Instructor Trainer Seminar (ITS). Instructors involved in national training events are prepared for their roles through National Academy and Advanced Academy.

National Rangers Ministry Camp
The purpose of the National Rangers Ministry Camp is to provide interactive instruction in a wide range of fun and exciting activities that appeal to boys and young men. These will include basic “modern” camping, sports fun, trade skills, arts, and technology. These are activities that men and boys can do together and serve a very important purpose: to facilitate relationship and friendships that provide mentoring opportunities.
Junior Survival Camp
Junior Canoe Expedition
Junior Canoe Expedition (JCE) is for those boys who want to learn more advanced canoeing skills as well as how to conduct canoe trips. Boys must have attended Advanced JTC and have finished the ninth grade. Topics which will be studied include water-related first aid, swimming safety, canoe safety, waterproofing of gear, canoe care, portaging, and conducting council fires. After attending classes the first day, trainees and staff will set out on a river expedition. During this time they will complete all the requirements for the green Canoeing Merit. Expeditions are divided into groups, because often there is a restriction on the number of campers at each campsite.
Junior Leadership Training Camp
Junior Training Camp (JTC) is for boys in seventh grade and above. This camp trains boys in camping techniques and outpost leadership, conducted in an outdoor setting. Trainees are divided into patrols that will camp together, eat together, and function as units throughout the camp. Training emphasizes campcraft techniques, team-building skills, and gives boys the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned. In addition, each trainee receives a booklet at the beginning of the camp to complete while at the camp.
