Alternatives to the Boy Scouts

This one sounds like fun. It's a Christian wingnut organization called The Assemblies of God's Royal Rangers. Check out the group's description:
"We provide Christ-like character formation and servant leadership development for boys and young men in a highly relational and fun environment," says the Rangers' mission statement.

Every four years, the organization brings together several thousand boys and adult leaders for a "Camporama" at the Rangers' campground in Eagle Rock, Mo. Last summer's event featured a high-ropes course, two zip lines, a water slide, and a lumberjack show.

Like the Southern Baptists, the Assemblies of God considers homosexuality immoral and has urged the Boy Scouts not to lift the ban on gays.
I don't know how they'll keep the gays out, what with that "lumberjack show". I wonder if the lumberjacks shower with the Royal Rangers after the show -- you know, to help the lads establish manly behaviors. Probably, huh?
