Are you interested in serving on a short-term missions project? We are offering a missions opportunity for April 22 – May 1. This opportunity is a constructions missions trip for men and young men to fully restore a pastor’s house. See the flyer for more information.
Winter Survival Action Camp is coming up February 14-16, 2020. This will be an exciting 3-day adventure in the snow. There is a limited number of spaces available, so sign up as soon as possible to be able to take advantage of this great opportunity.
Be sure to sign up before 1/15/2020 to take advantage of the early registration price.
WSAC is designed to give boys, leaders and dads training and experience in safety and survival skills for winter camping. The time at WSAC will be divided between instruction and application. Trainees are placed into two-man survival teams. Trainees learn skills such as advanced fire craft, primitive beds and shelters, outdoor cooking, and winter first aid. Teams will pitch a tent & sleep in it the first night. Construct and sleep in survival shelters the second night. The camp is open to all Royal Rangers who have completed the 8th grade.
To sign up, see the registration form.
Camp Improvement Projects
We’re going to be working at the camp June 6-9. We have a lot that will be going on. We need adult assistance to make these improvements to our camp. The more people that can get involved the quicker we can get things up and running. There are a number of projects going on this weekend. This is our camp and it’s a beautiful place to spend time with God.
Please contact John Gingerich if you can help!
Proposed Camp Development
We have a great road that extends from County Rd 9 all the way up to the top of the hill. We’re looking at extending this road around the camp. Take a look at the picture to see what the plan is. The heavy white line is where we expect to build. This will extend the road from the end of the field, around the camp south to near County Rd 9, back across to the RV pad area, and also create a street through the FCF Village.
We also hope to build a couple of additional buildings in the future. We’re looking at an office building near the entrance, and also a multi-use building as well.
We need your help in the area of finances. Everything we plan to do will take both time and money. Having the money on hand to complete a building project when it’s needed can often be a difficult thing. If the Lord has placed it on your heart to give to the camp – and to see more boys connecting with God, please consider taking this opportunity to make a love offering. For more information on how to give, please see our giving page.
Please keep all of our camp team in prayer. A lot of hard work and time goes into building a camp like this. It’s a labor of love and our team has sacrificially given of their time and talents to the Lord.
Get ready for the greatest event of the year!

Special Guest Speaker
Pastor Jay Risner
Jay and Debbie Risner have been actively involved in children’s ministries for over 20 years. Jay served in the professional entertainment industry in the late seventies. In 1980, Jay and Debbie took what they had taught and produced in the secular entertainment world and went into full time ministry using their gifts and talents for the Lord.
Jay was the children’s pastor at James River Assembly, a church of over ten thousand and Timberline Church, with an attendance of over six thousand. Jay was also a children’s pastor for ten years in California before heading to the Mission Field (Africa) in 1990, as the coordinator of Children’s Ministries for East Africa. In 1993, while in Kenya, he performed and produced a children’s TV show, “Rainbow Surprise,” that is reaching today over twenty-two million people each week. Jay currently oversees full production of the show.
Today Jay and Debbie work as “Children’s Ministries Specialist International” for the Assemblies of God World Missions. They travel across the world, training children’s pastors and workers, performing in schools, ministering in large-scale kid’s crusades, and developing Children’s Ministries in many nations. Jay is a very gifted communicator not only to children, but to adults as well.

Spring is here and so is the FCF Spring Trace! It’s happening May 17-19. This is a great time to get together with all the boys and men of your outpost and experience the wonder and thrill of camping. Our Spring Trace is themed in the colonial era and there are a lot of activities to see and take part in.
You don’t have to be a member of FCF to attend the Trace (you can even bring your modern camping equipment). As a matter of fact if you are looking to join FCF, you can do so here. If you are a member of FCF, there are also opportunities for advancement that you can take advantage of here.
For more information, download the Spring Trace Registration Packet.
Greetings to all my fellow Adirondack Chapter FCF members!
We are at the mid-point of the Ranger year and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide members with some positive and encouraging news, keep members updated on matters and address some general issues.
In addition, with the Spring Trace soon approaching, I have also included in this newsletter information with regard to member advancement.
This event also counts towards the green Convoy of Hope merit.
This takes place Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 8am to 2pm at Freedom Chapel on Long Island.
