  • GMA Changes

    At LEAD16 in March of this year, the national Royal Rangers office announced changes to the Adventure Rangers advancement system and to the earning of the Gold Medal of Achievement.

    The GMA is now no longer part of the Adventure Rangers advancement system. To earn the GMA moving forward, a boy will have to have earned the highest award in any TWO age groups, excluding Ranger Kids.

    A new award known as the GMA with Merit is earned by boys that have earned the highest award in any THREE age groups including Ranger Kids.

    The Honor GMA has been renamed to the GMA with Honors and is awarded to boys that have earned the highest award in all FOUR age groups.

    The GMA, GMA with Merit, and GMA with Honors is considered a single award and is represented by the traditional GMA insignia. The "merit" distinction wears a single start on the GMA ribbon while the "honors" distinction wears two stars.

    The three annual awards for Adventure Rangers have been renamed.

    It is important to note, that if boys are close to earning the 2010 GMA under the current system, they MUST be finished by 12/31/16, otherwise they will have to earn it under the 2016 requirements.

    For information on all of the changes to the Adventure Rangers advancement system and the 2016 GMA requirements can be found on the national Royal Rangers web site.

Camp Finances - Future 500

NTX Future 500

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.
