WOODWORTH – Young men will get a taste of pioneer days at this year’s Royal Ambassador Congress.
Starting and extinguishing a fire, how a yoke of oxen work together as a team and eating a meal out of a chuck wagon are among the activities planned for this year’s annual gathering of first through sixth grade boys. RA Congress begins March 27 and concludes the following day at Tall Timbers Conference Center.
“There are moments growing up that have created “snapshots” on the memory banks of my mind,” said Mike Collie. “An RA campout is one of those snapshots. I believe this is one of those snapshot events.”
While RA Congress will feature events unique to its theme “Take Me Back To Pioneer Days”, the weekend will also include traditional favorites such as pinewood derby and soapbox car races, archery, rope crafts, bb gun shooting, slingshots, hatchet throwing and presentations from missionaries.
The missionaries coming this year include those from the North American and International Mission Board.
The cost for RA Congress is average of $76.00 per person, based on multiple occupancy.
To register, visit LouisianaBaptists.org/RACongress or contact Tall Timbers by phone at 318.445.6797 or email at TallTimbers@TallTimbersBCC.org.
Every RA lad and leader will receive a coonskin cap.
Other RA events planned this year are RA Camp at Tall Timbers, June 22-25; RA Survivorman Camp at ABC Camp in Eunice, Sept. 18-19; RA Camp-O-Ree at Camp Harris in Minden, Oct. 16-17; and Finish the Race to Manhood soapbox derby race in Baton Rouge, Nov. 7.
