2020 Ranger Camp Dates coming in early 2020. We will post dates as soon as we are able. Keep checking back with us.
Sunday Check-in is from 7:30AM - 8:30AM. Ranger Camp starts promply at 9AM.
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 unquie week of Challenge, Adventure, and Success as they negotiate much of what Ranger Candidates experience in the Mountain Phase of their Traning.
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 (or 13 and completed the 8th grade) and older, boy scouts, venturers and emplorers (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.
