The purpose of the Ranger Award award is to encourage Venturers to achieve a high level of outdoor skills proficiency; recognize achievement of this high level of outdoor skills proficiency; provide a path for outdoor/high-adventure skills training; and establish Rangers as a highly trained leadership resource for crews, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and the community.

The Ranger Award exemplifies a challenging high-level outdoor/high-adventure skills advancement program. Once earned, it will identify a Ranger as a person who is highly skilled at a variety of outdoor sports and interests, trained in outdoor safety, and ready to lead or assist others in activities. Rangers can be a great program asset to Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, and others.

June dates
  • June 1, 2008National Trails Day
  • June 15, 1916 – U.S. President Woodrow Wilson signs a bill incorporating the Boy Scouts of America, making them the only American youth organization with a federal charter.
  • June 25, 1977 – Olave Baden-Powell, wife of Robert Baden-Powell, former Chief World guide, one of the only two recipients of the gold silver fish, died at Birtley House, Bramley in Surrey, UK. Her ashes were taken to Kenya to be buried with her husband.
  • June 30, 1937 – First National Jamboree, held at Washington, DC. Ran from June 30-July 9. Was to have been in 1935, but was canceled due to a polio epidemic.
  • June 1923 – First recorded use of the word "woggle" (early Scouts tied a knot in their neckerchief) in the June issue of the Scout magazine. The word ring was used in early editions of the Scouting handbook Scouting for Boys until 1929 when Baden-Powell changed it in the 14th edition: "It [the scarf] may be fastened at the throat by a knot or woggle, which is some form of ring made of cord, metal or bone, or anything you like."
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
