WHAT IS TRAIL LIFE
Trail Life USA is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership program for young men. 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. Living the Trail Life is a journey established on timeless values derived from the Bible.
Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.
Our mission is simple and clear: to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure.
Colossians 1:10 “That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God”
On my honor, I will do my best
To serve God and my country;
To respect authority;
To be a good steward of creation;
And to treat others as I want to be treated.
We meet the 2nd & 4th Monday of each month from 6:00-8:00 at Clear Fork Alliance Church. We also have at least one adventure outing per month which are usually on a Saturday. The troop does not hold regular monthly meetings in June or July.
PROGRAM & ACTIVITIES
The Trail Life program and activities are designed for adventure, learning, and leadership, all with the Christian emphasis that’s important to you. Younger Trailmen learn new life skills through community outings and camping. Middle school Trailmen grow in their knowledge of outdoor skills and go on monthly excursions together to build character and teamwork. Older high school Trailmen will encounter ambitious and challenging outdoor adventures, travel options, and our exclusive “Freedom Experience.”
Troop 1 formed in July 2013 as an independent father-son troop under the authority of Clear Fork Alliance Church with 12 members. In January 2014, Troop 1 received a charter and became a founding member of Trail Life USA.
TROOP PATCH & FLAG
The Troop 1 patch is an olive drab shield emblazoned with a scarlet cross. It is modeled after the U.S. 1st Infantry Division insignia. The troop flag is an olive drab field emblazoned with a scarlet cross.
The olive drab color represents the outdoors (our forum) and the scarlet cross represents Jesus Christ (our focus).
