In a recent posting to scouts-l, Kent Wilkins stated that "The Ranger Award
is the first step towards the gold and silver awards"
Sorry, but this is not so. The Ranger Award is a separate award from the
Gold, and Silver Awards. The first award the Venturers would earn is the
it can be earned up to 5 times in 5 different specialities (Arts & Hobbies,
Ministries, Outdoor, Sports, or Sea Scouting). You are not required to earn
before earning Bronze, Gold, or Silver, nor are Bronze, Gold, or Silver
earning Ranger (however, if the Venturer earns the Outdoor Bronze Award,
counts toward Ranger Award requirements).
Full details of these awards can be found at both the US Scouting Service
web page and now the BSA web page.
