Outpost Chatering

Please keep in mind that Chartering requirements and benefits are determined by the Royal Rangers National Office, and may change at any time. I post this information here only for reference. Please contact your District Office or the National Office for update to date information.

It is the Senior Commander`s responsibility of Chartering and re-chartering his outpost each year.

Along with your Charter, send your Outpost Annual Report.

If you have organized a group of Royal Rangers and have not yet chartered, it is extremely important to charter for these reasons:

  1. An outpost number, National recognition and an attractive charter certificate to display in the outpost meeting room. The national office will add your group to the national mailing list to receive important and timely information.
  2. Membership cards for the boys and leaders in the outpost.
  3. Quarterly publications of High Adventure for your boys and High Adventure Leader for Leaders.
  4. Award program enrollment, making your group eligible to participate in the Outpost Commander`s Award Program and Ranger of the Year.
  5. To receive a free official information including how to order Royal Rangers material.
  6. Other benefits, such as participation in the Leadership Training Academy; national training camps; sectional, district and national camping activities; and the Royal Rangers of the Year program (which ranges from local to national competition).
  7. Tracking Database to chart boy`s advancements and leader`s training.

Charter Recognition

Basic requirements for chartering a unit are
  1. A minimum of five boys who have met the requirements for recruit.
  2. A qualified outpost commander and, when possible, one or more assistants.
  3. A registration fee for each boy and adult. (This covers subscriptions to High Adventure/High Adventure Leader and other materials.)

Make application for charter after three regular meetings.

Upon application each outpost council will receive from the national Royal Rangers office a charter certificate, membership cards, and other important materials.

The chartered outpost will receive an assigned number for its group.

The church or outpost council should order an emblem patch for each boy at the time of application to present along with the membership card.

*Recruit--a boy with proper age requirements for a certain Royal Rangers level, but who has not achieved advancements.
