Countdown to camp

Registration closes two weeks prior.

Academy FAQ

All campers are expected to find their own way to and from camp. We suggest parents car pool or arrange to use their church van.

You have to start with Jr Training Camp (JTC) and then one year later attend Advanced Jr Training Camp (AJTC). From there you can elect three more adventure camps to earn your saber.

Ranger Training Camp is recommended for 5th graders. Once you are 11 or older you can attend any of our Academy camps, but the Survival camp is really challenging so do that camp last if you can.

Camp Wilderness has modern flush toilet and private hot shower facilities available to all campers, including Frontiersman Campers. Bring your own towel and toiletries.

Ask your parents to:

  • Purchase a handbook for you and review it with you.
  • Set goals with you and celebrate with you when you earn awards and merits
  • Help you complete any missed lessons and assignments
  • Ask you what he learned in Rangers and practice with you
  • Add all events to your family calendar and ensure you are  signed up in a timely fashion. The easiest may be to ENROL for camps you're interested in, and then REGISTER and pay closer to the event.
  • Challenge you to pray and read the Bible every day and incorporate any memory verses and required reading into your quiet time
  • Always be ready to help Ranger leaders at events and camp-outs. Leader’s are not experts in every merit, ask them to volunteer to help teach a merit they know a lot about.

Due to low demand, GPH no longer carries the dress uniform or the formal uniform blazer. Alternative sources for these items are available upon request from the National Office. Call 417-862-2781 Extension 4181. 

Registering for any district camp just got a whole lot easier!

  • Set up an account for your family. All your camp info and forms are saved in one convenient place!
  • Fill out your medical forms once, and you're set. Of course, you can go back and edit your information at any time.
  • Enroll in the camps your family members plan to attend and we'll hold a space for you. Pay for events individually or all at once whenever you're ready. (Of course, we require at least partial payment before you're considered registered for camp).
  • When you enroll, your Outpost is notified. Contact Doris if you need registration reports emailed to your outpost.
  • Leaders, if you're serving on staff at a camp, get with the comp coordinator. He may have a discount code for you.
