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.

Leadership Lodge Renovation Nears Completion

Leadership Lodge, one of three similar buildings set for renovation, received new windows, flooring, and a total paint job inside and out!

There's still the bathrooms and lighting to be completed but the progress is exciting.

Because of our commitment to running the operations of Trail Life USA out of member fees and merchandise sales, all of the Camp Aiken renovations and improvements are provided out of donations and grants.

Thank you to those who contributed to this progress. If you'd like to be a part of renovating Adventure Lodge and Character Cottage, click here!



Trail Life USA Store Sees New Items

The Trail Life USA online store has lots of great items available. And they are not for members only!

See our great T-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee cups, backpacks, and more.

For our members, we will be releasing a brand new handbook for the Woodlands Trail (K-5th grade) and an updated guide for Navigator and Adventurer Leaders (6th-12th grade). Both books will be available in print for purchase for the first time ever! The Navigator and Adventurer Leader Guide will still be available for free download to members.


Camp Equip 2017

Trail Life USA's first ever Camp Equip training event was held at Camp Aiken June 5-10. Adult participants learned how to plan and carry out their Troop's Summer Adventure. Young Trailmen learned how to lead rather than exist, help their Troop rather than hinder it, and in one week, go from "zero to hero" in outdoor skills mastery.

Special thanks to Point Man Marvin Burr (Troop GA-0594) and the rest of the amazing Georgia volunteers who made this event the best it could be!

Consider giving a gift to help us "guide generations of courageous young me to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure."
