Royal Ambassadors Events
Boys like participating in events with their leaders and other boys. State RA events provides an opportunity for RA groups to engage in mission education events and meet other RA groups. The following links and information provide basic information for the state events and ideas for planing and conducting group and associational events.
Interest activities are an important part of Royal Ambassador work. Interest activities include camping, games, sports, campcraft, hobbies, crafts, physical fitness, and many other similar activities. These are all planned within the framework of the boy’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development.
All activities planned for boys should have plenty of boy appeal. Boys enjoy doing things and like to have fun in the process. Interest activities create a great deal of enthusiasm among boys and are one of the primary avenues for learning new skills.
On-mission activities are at the very heart of Royal Ambassadors. These activities are designed to help expand the RAs knowledge and to help them give expression to their Christian commitment. Their service through on-mission activities extends their witness and ministry beyond themselves to bring all people to Christ and glorify God.
To achieve its purpose, a missions activity must have a purpose and be well-planned. Involve the chapter members in planning the project, and incorporate their ideas into the plans. These activities can be directed toward the following nine mission fields. The ages at which RAs are capable of grasping the impact of the activities is included in parentheses.
