    In 1988, 85 acres of wilderness that we know of today as Camp Wilderness was started to provide a safe

    and exciting atmosphere for boys. Among the main reason to start a camp of this nature was to teach boys

    camping skills, moral and spiritual principals, as well as how to become good citizens.

    The primary resident and owner of this camp, Florida Rangers

    Incorporated functions as the leader for the Pen. Florida District

    Royal Rangers. Royal Rangers is a scouting based organization

    built within the Assemblies of God church that specializes in

    ministry to boys ages 5 through 18. Some 6000 boys a year come

    thru Camp Wilderness for many activities and outings. Many of

    the visitors stretch from the Florida-Georgia state line to Key

    West at the southern tip of Florida. The camp also hosts

    leadership training for men not only at a state level but hosts

    national camps twice a year with men coming from all across the United States.

    Upon entering the property, you will find the 7,500 square foot Lodge which includes sleeping

    arrangements for 30 people, bathrooms, a large meeting room with a fireplace, kitchen facilities, offices for

    the District Royal Ranger staff and the Florida Ranger Store and serves as the District Training Center. The

    Lodge is open for rentals as discussed later in this package and when dates are available.

    The camp also has to offer an outdoor amphitheatre that can seat more than

    4,000 people and houses lighting and sound capabilities. In addition to the

    large amphitheatre, two smaller amphitheatres that seat under 100 people

    are located in the interior of the camping area. You will find few places

    that offer this capacity to host council fires and pageants for groups in a

    camp atmosphere.

    The property offers campsites with pavilions and running water, nature heated and gas heated showers

    throughout the 85 acre property. You will find the Whidden Creek running from the west side of the

    property and opening into the Peace River at the east end of the property. The creek and river are always

    the hot spot for boys looking for shark’s teeth, swimming, fishing and canoeing. A permanent Water Slide,

    Climbing Wall, Zip Line and BMX course are among the activities

    awaiting your group. Among the many sites you will see at the camp

    will be it’s wildlife which include deer, turkey, wild hogs, snakes,

    armadillos, turtles, many bird species and even gators ! The outdoor

    wilderness is one of the Camp’s most appreciated values.

    The camp is the perfect place to bring all ages for camping, groups for

    events or event day trips for swimming and fishing. I hope you take

    the time to visit and make Camp Wilderness part of your yearly

    Gold Medal of AchievementRoyal Rangers Gold Medal of Achievement is the highest honor a boy can earn. It is equivalent of the Eagle Scout award in the Scouting program.

    The Gold Medal of Achievement (GMA) is a medal of great distinction and honor. It was first offered in 1963 with the first recipient completing its requirements in 1964. In its 40 year history the GMA has been earned by over 5000 boys ages 12 through 17 years of age.

    The average age of a boy earning the GMA is approximately 16 years of age. This indicates that a boy has been involved in Royal Rangers for at least 4-5 years before earning his GMA. At this time, slightly least than 1% of the boys involved in Royal Rangers each year earn the GMA. As a result of its challenging merit trail, it is truly a coveted award for any Royal Ranger boy.
