Future 500

Future 500 Documentation (PDF)

The Royal Rangers Camp at Lakeview has been a blessing to the Royal Rangers of North Texas for many years. Our first building – the pavilion – was built in 1995, followed by the Ollie Henley Lodge, bathhouses, the first aid building, and other facilities. Maintenance of our existing buildings is funded in part by the Compass Program, where leaders pledge at least $10 per month. What the Compass Program doesn’t cover must be covered by other donations, or it must come out of camp fees that our boys pay.

There is no money in the Royal Rangers budget for enhancements to our existing facilities, or for the construction of new buildings. Those must be funded by gifts from individuals, outposts, churches, and businesses. We have a great need to put money into improving several of our buildings. For example:

  • 2014 In-Work - Divide the shower sides of existing bathhouses into men’s and boy’s sides so everyone can have showers 24 hours a day.

  • 2014 In-Work - Add a shower to the existing restroom in two of our buildings to make them more useful during our camps (guest quarters, staff quarters during boys’ camps)

  • 2014 In-Work - Renovate the kitchen in the lodge (needed for Pow Wow, our boys’ training camps, and other events held at Lakeview)

Projects that need funding

  • Extend water line into the North 40 (our new camping area) so campsites up there will have easy access to water

  • Replace existing water faucets around camp with all-weather water faucets (help prevent problems with freezing in the winter)

  • Better insulate existing buildings (will help with utility bills)

  • New roof on the store building

  • Foundation work on two of our existing bathhouses

  • Loads of gravel to fix our roads

  • Enhancements in our snack shack; siding and maintenance on the pavilion

Completed Tasks as of May 2014

  • Completed installation of propane hot water heaters in all bathhouses (means more hot water during camps)

“How can you help?” you may ask. The answer is by joining the North Texas Royal Rangers Future 500. Members pledge to give a minimum of $500 over the next 12 months to help fund these and other projects that will make our campground even better and more useful for the leaders and boys in Royal Rangers. If you can’t pledge that much, you can still help by presenting this need to your church or men’s group to see if they can pledge at least $500. Of course, gifts/pledges for more than $500 would be great too.

To make a pledge, you may fill out the form below or you may e-mail our district Royal Rangers director ( Once your pledge is received you will receive a commemorative Future 500 patch to show that you have joined with others from across the district to help continue the development of our campground.

When you send in a payment, send it to North Texas Royal Rangers, P.O. Box 838, Waxahachie, TX 75168-0838 and mark it for Royal Rangers Camp Improvements Fund 78-2011.
