Chartering is the annual process by which Royal Rangers outposts register their membership for the coming year. Chartered groups enjoy a variety of unique benefits as noted below. Chartering also provides national, regional, and district leadership teams with valuable information to help them monitor the health of the program and shape its ongoing development and success.
The annual chartering period runs from September 1st to October 31st each year. Groups may charter at other times throughout the year but all charters expire on August 31st. Chartering is primarily done online, although a mail-in process is available for an additional fee.
The following list highlights some of the many benefits chartered groups currently enjoy.
Charter fees are paid annually at the time of chartering your group. Fees are based on the number of leaders and boys in your outpost. Standard annual fees are as follows, although fees in some districts may be higher. Contact your district for details.
Churches seeking to conduct a Royal Rangers program must attain eligibility under one of the following categories. Please note that due to the fact that Royal Rangers is a church-based ministry, only churches may conduct Royal Rangers programs.
To add members to an existing charter, please submit an Outpost Additional Enrollment Application by mail to the address shown on the application. Adding members is not currently available through the online chartering system.
