Founded in 1956, Hawk Mountain Ranger School is the longest running Search & Rescue school in the country. Students as young as 13 and through adulthood are faced with challenging tasks and intense training, both in leadership and practical skills. The confidence gained through facing these challenges prepares graduates to face challenges not only in SAR, but in all aspects of life.

Throughout the training, students embody the CAP core values. Integrity, to the point of letting go of personal desires is the main focus of the Ranger Creed, which concludes: 

"These things I do, that others may live..."
