Message For Parents
Trail Life USA is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership movement for our nation’s young men. Our exciting 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.
Our Christ-centered program is chartered by churches and organizations and led by high caliber Christian adults using a specifically biblical worldview as our standard.
Trail Life USA has programs for each age level.
Elementary-age boys join the Woodlands Trail:
- Foxes – Kindergarten to 1st grade
- Hawks – 2nd to 3rd grade
- Mountain Lions – 4th to 5th grade
Middle School Boys are Navigators – 6th to 8th grade.
High School boys are Adventurers – 9th to 12th grade.
And for College-age: Guidon – 18 to 25 years old.
As young men progress through the various levels of the TRAIL LIFE USA program, they take part in camping, leadership development, rank advancements, awards, a trail badge program, community service, summer adventures, spiritual training, and a variety of special offerings.
Many of our Charter Organizations and members are joining us following previous involvement in the Boy Scout program. For them, it is comforting to know that existing BSA ranks, awards, merit badges, and training will be readily transferable to this new program. In fact, Scouts on the “Trail to Eagle” are able to transfer over to the “Trail to Freedom.” The work that they have already completed will be recognized and will not be lost.
And the many scouts and leaders (young and old) who have already earned the coveted rank of Eagle Scout will also have the opportunity to serve in Trail Life USA and earn our premier award—the “Freedom Award.”
A fun, exciting, Christian character development program for young men that supports the family’s desire to raise men of Godly character is what TRAIL LIFE USA is all about.
Welcome, we are glad you are here!
How will you find a troop for your son? There are several options:
- As troops start up around the country, the Find a Troop page on this website will assist you in locating troops near your home.
- Approach your church to see if they are interested in starting a troop as part of their community outreach. Let us know and we’ll help.
- Network with other families in your area that have a similar interest and see if their church might step up to charter a troop in your town.
A Christian outdoor adventure movement is a powerful concept. Please take an active stance in helping to ensure that the Trail Life USA program is available for your son and the young men in your town.
