The Discovery Training Camp was held as part of the Rangers programme in conjunction with Church Camp 2015.
The goal of the DTC is to give Rangers an opportunity to experience leadership and teamwork.
The 20 Rangers that attended DTC were divided into 3 team patrols and were required to create patrol songs, yells and flags as a group.
The level of teamwork displayed was amazing as the children rose to the challenge to complete the patrol tasks; some even took the initiative to meet before breakfast and sit together during meal times to practice their songs and yells.
Everyday duties were rotated among patrol members so each ranger received a chance to serve either as a patrol leader or quartermaster or scribe.
The Rangers also participated in Olympic Games and class activities that were designed to teach teamwork and objective principles like making right decisions and punctuality.
The highlight was the council of fire held on the last night of camp. This is the time the patrols presented their songs and yells and skits they have prepared.
During the campfire, Chaplain Pastor Steven Kum shared a devotion about how a nice car may look good on the outside but without fuel, it will not run. Similarly having medals and merits will look good on the outside but without the Holy Spirit we cannot run the Christian life.
By the end of the camp, the patrol teams had done well in their teamwork and leadership and this was reflected in the hard work and dedication they had put together during the 3 days.
This effort was reflected in each of the 3 patrol teams all receiving the Gold Medal of Excellence from the Camp Commander which they proudly could display on their patrol banner.

The Royal Rangers organised annual camp at Hulu Langat from the 8th to the 10th of August. 70 Rangers & commanders attended this year’s camp, and we were blessed with good weather throughout.
On the bright sunny day of August 8 the Rangers gathered at CCC in Bukit Jalil for a time of devotion by our outpost chaplain, Pastor Steven Kum. He spoke on how the devil tries his best to undermine our faith, and how we should always be perceptive of the things that can tempt us into sinning. We started on our journey to our campsite in Hulu Langat after Pastor Steven prayed for a fruitful camp and a safe journey.
