I share with you the warmth and glow of this campfire. These crimson flames are a symbol of our fellowship and adventures in camping.
The Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship (FCF), originally called Frontiersmen Camping Fraternity, was founded during the summer of1966. The Fellowship began as a way to reward for the older boys and men who had distinguished themselves in advancement, training, and camping.
Frontiersman Camping Fellowship (FCF) is a special program of Royal Rangers dedicated to the advancement of the mission and purpose of the Royal Rangers ministry through the development of advanced camping and leadership skills. FCF encourages members to pursue personal growth through the development of woodsmanship, leadership, friendship, achievement, and courage, utilizing the imagery and lore of the early American frontiersman. Membership is restricted to individuals who have met a specific list of requirements as presented in the FCF Handbook. For more information about FCF visit www.nationalfcf.com.
The first FCF chapter was organized in the Southern California District in 1966. Dressed in buckskin outfits, the boys and men gathered in the firelight and prepared to endure a night of testing that would stretch their camping and survival skills to the limit.
