Our History & Heritage
The history of the Royal Rangers program nationwide and around the world is closely aligned with the history of the program here in southern Missouri district. The first Royal Rangers outpost was formed here in SoMo at Bethel AG in Springfield and served as the pilot program for all other outposts that would follow. Many of the founders of the program served in outposts here in southern Missouri and some served in district leadeership roles as well. Our Daniel Boone Chapter of the FCF is likewise one of the first chapters to be formed in Royal Rangers.
