Who We Are

Trail Life USA is a Christian Outdoor Adventure, Character, and Leadership Program for boys and young men.

Operating from Troops that are chartered through churches in 48 states, the K-12 program centers on outdoor experiences that build a young man’s skills and allow him to grow on a personal level and as a role model and leader for his peers.

Living the Trail Life is a journey established on timeless values derived from the Bible.

Now that you’ve gone through the PLAN stage of Join the Trail, we want to help you PROMOTE your Troop! On the PROMOTE section of JoinTheTrail.com, you will find all kinds of ideas and materials to help your Troop gain exposure.

Start with reaching out to your community through parent-to-parent and peer-to-peer connections. Don’t underestimate the ability of your Trailmen to network with their friends from school or co-op. They can be your biggest advocates! On JoinTheTrail.com, we share ideas for ways to reward your Trailmen if their friend comes to visit your Troop.

While you’re out serving the community, Trail Life USA t-shirts and signs with your Troop number are a big help in gaining Troop exposure. And use your social media time to tell people about (and invite them to!) events that your Troop is planning. You can find all kinds of graphics to download for a Troop Facebook page on JoinTheTrail.com.

In addition to ideas to PROMOTE your Troop, we offer other various materials you can use such as Booth in a Box, signs, and banners. In addition to physical materials, we also give you digital and printable materials and videos you can use.

With all of these tools in your kit, you should have all you need to PROMOTE your Troop for the new Program year. Head over to www.JoinTheTrail.com/Promote to gain access to all of this and more. If you have success stories, strategies, or would like to find out more about what other Troops are doing nationwide, head over to Facebook.com/JoinTheTrail and join the conversation!
