Ranger Camp

Ranger Camp will be held July 21 - 26, 2024. Registration Open!


Sunday Check-in is from 7:00AM - 8:30AM 

Ranger Camp starts promptly at 9 AM.


The Northeast Georgia Council has a long tradition of working with the U.S. Army Rangers at Camp Frank D Merrill near Dahlonega, Georgia. Ranger Camp is conducted by the Northeast Georgia Council utilizing the expertise of both the Ranger Instructors ( RI's) and our own High Adventure Climbing Instructor volunteers to provide a unique week of Challenge, Adventure, and Success as they negotiate much of what Ranger Candidates experience in the Mountain Phase of their Training. 


The first part of the week is dedicated to training and teambuilding so that the participants can meet the challenge successfully on top of Mt. Yonah as they climb and rappel the 200ft face on Thursday and Friday. Participation for Ranger Camp is open to Youth 14 and older, Scouts, Venturers and Explorers (male and female), and adults, space permitting. 


The program is designed so that an individual youth can attend without adult supervision or without their entire troop, crew, or post. Ranger camp is a great program for youth who have attended Camp Rainey Mountain several times.
