Trail life usa

Too many boys are turning to virtual worlds of television, video games, digital media, and the internet to find realms they can conquer and areas where they can excel.  The result of this virtual conquest is often apathy, apparent rebellion, or outright resistance to real-world challenges.

Trail Life USA is an environment where boys thrive! Adults are equipped to lead a program in a structured outdoor environment where boys are engaged in real-world challenges and experience camping, hiking, and fishing; they develop skills in riflery, archery, and canoeing; and learn character and leadership in a practical hands-on manner that is naturally engaging. Trail Life is a great place for boys and dads (and boys without dads) to grow in character and leadership.

"Trail Life USA is a great outdoor adventure program for boys and young men." - Dr. James Dobson
