Expedition Rangers Advancement Trail

The focus of the advancement trail is to help boys develop into young men who have the skills to make good sound decisions, strong moral character, exemplify leadership skills, and are founded in the Word of God. The advancement system in Expedition Rangers consists of these three awards:

  • E1 Award - typically earned after one full year of involvement in the program
  • E2 Award - typically earned after a second full year in the program
  • E3 Award - typically earned after a third full year in the program

Each award is presented after the young man has earned the specified number of merits in each merit category, as well as the required number of Spirit Challenge lessons

Nearly one hundred silver merits are available for Expedition Rangers to choose from in earning these awards. Merit materials are available through TRaClub, the online Royal Ranger curriculum.
