WHO: BOYS (4th Grade +)

The Junior Leadership Development Academy (JLDA) is designed to assist a boy in his leadership journey. It consists of several events that are held annually that will give boys fun-filled, intentional leadership training, along with powerful spiritual development opportunities. This training experience is designed to be a catalyst and springboard of spiritual encouragement.

RTC is designed to help prepare boys for leadership in the local group and outpost. It is not a prerequisite for Junior Leaders Development Academy (JLDA) attendance but is recommended for all boys 4th-6th grade. Ranger Training Camp (RTC) is a district leadership training event for boys who have graduated the 4th grade but not yet in the 7th grade. RTC prepares boys to serve as junior leaders in a boy-led, adult-facilitated outpost.

JTC is a district training event for boys in the 7th grade or above. Junior Training Camp focuses on leadership development in the local patrol and group. JTC can be offered in a camping, retreat center, or church venue. JTC is a required event for the Trial of the Saber Award. JTC will help boys discover answers to these questions:

What are my God-given (natural) talents and strengths and how am I developing them?

Do I have what it takes to be a godly man?

What is God’s plan for my life?

*Flag retirement/Honor Guard discipline, lashing projects, archery, bb/pellet gun challenge, low course zip line, orienteering, fishing, ice cream and a whole lot more.

Backpack Action Camp

WHERE: FLORIDA WALKING TRAIL (ECONFINA TRAILHEAD)

COST: $50 EA WITHOUT FOOD OR $90 FOOD INCLUDED

WHO: BOYS AGE 12+ AND FATHERS (LEGAL GUARDIAN OR SIBLINGS)

*This is an 18+ mile stretch of the Florida Walking Trail with most of it traversing the Econfina Creek basin. This is one of the Seven Wonders of Florida…just sayn. We will begin thejourney on the trailhead at Hwy 20 and complete at Scotts Road off Hwy 231. The object will be to get the 25 mile patch as we add a bit more of the trek through this region to accomplish. This is a moderate trail with mild hillside terrain and did I mention Econfina Creek. The camp is staged (hopefully with great weather) with some blocked time for canoeing special to have a break from the heat. It will be a great bonding time with some WORD on the WAY. Please email me direct for an application then I will be sending you an information packet with everything included.
