Official Troop Standard


  • Set of 6
  • Set of 12
  • Set of 24


The Troop Standard is the official way a Navigator or Adventurer Trailman displays his Trail Badges, as well as the pinnacle award in Trail Life USA, the Freedom Award.

Many Troops create their own walking sticks, but the Troop Standard is harvested for Trail Life USA and sure to last for generations without cracking or attracting bugs. It is made of dark-stained and clear-lacquered chestnut – farmed, processed, and imported from forests in Europe  – then provided by an American vendor. It is available for the boy who earns the Able Trailman Rank or the Journey Award.

Sold in sets of 6, 12 and 24.

Please note that the Troop Standard, Trail Life USA medallion, and an instruction sheet are shipped together, but require assembly. You may download (right-click) the instruction sheet images here as well.

Official Troop Standard

Troop Standards 6X!

The Troop Standards are great and the Adventurers really appreciate something that sets them apart...However...why are they only available in lots of 6 parts minimum?!? For a small troop, that's a lot of parts to sit on until we need them. It would be nice to be able to buy them in singles or pairs...even if there is some type of cost penalty.

As Expected - Quality

We are still very new to Trail Life USA and were a little reluctant to spend the money for these standards for our navigators. But, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wood and and the fittings. The boys are excited to have them to display their advancement.

Love the product itself but dislike that you have to order in sets of 6. Just not feasible for small troops. You should be able to order individually and then in groups of 5.

It was determined a few years ago that shipping one Standard was cost prohibitive due to its dimensional weight. We encourage small troops to join with other local troops (via your Point Man) to share purchases of all our product in order to 'dilute' shipping costs.
