What is Trail Life USA?

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.
