Trail Life USA, Where Learning is Life-Wide!

Homeschool Moms and Dads across America are discovering the power of outdoor adventure and badge-based education to unlock a passion for learning in their sons.


My son is NOT an outdoorsy or high adventure kid. We made Trail Life a homeschool requirement. It took him a year to get into it, but next month he will be our First Officer! The Adventurer badgework definitely goes along with high school subjects studied and makes them go into more son's final report for his Citizenship badge was 44 pages! He wants to be a Pastor and Trail Life has given him the opportunity to present the Sunday message on campouts. He even led an area retreat for fathers! We truly believe our son would not have the leadership, interpersonal skills, or confidence in the outdoors if it weren't for Trail Life USA.

“The values frontier is amazing - my boys are working through Apologetics I and II , Creeds, and Bible Basics. These were all really well done" - Shane - Homeschool Dad

Molding Boys


In the outdoors, boys are engaged in real-world challenge, find opportunity to achieve significant accomplishment,  and learn character and leadership in a practical hands-on manner that is naturally engaging.

Engaging Dads


Through adventure, camaraderie, and service, in Trail Life dads discover a meaningful way to nurture spiritual growth, teach life lessons, and engage with their sons in learning.


Boys thrive on risk and competition and learn best in active learning environments. Experiences like camping, hiking, and canoeing are catalysts that ignite curiosity and inspire boys to explore Trail Badges like camping, first aid, outdoor cooking, citizenship, our flag, apologetics, family man, emergency preparedness, Bible basics, aquatics, and more.

When empowered and provided with structure and challenge; the energy and enthusiam of boys is unlocked, relationships grow, and boys come to life! As they plan, work, serve, and experience adventure together, boys grow in character and leadership -- developing relationships with friends and mentors that will last a lifetime.

"Each of my kids had to pick one badge they want to do as an elective and then we divide it up. Some have taken as short as 3 weeks -- our longest was 9 months. They help us to explore potential career options, learn skills, and put learned items Into practice." - Trephina - Homeschool Mom
