Trail Life

Mission and Vision

Trail Life USA is a Christ-centered, outdoor adventure, leadership, and character development ministry. This is a journey to authentic manhood, progressing enduring values and preparing young men to be ready for any challenge that they will experience in this world. All boys and men are welcome to “join the trail” and we know that your family’s participation will make a monumental difference.  Below is our vision, mission, motto and oath that will be the overarching components, along with our core values that are used to take young men into manhood and onto victory in life as a Trailman.


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 to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure.


“Walk Worthy”

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

The Chartered Organization, Committee, and Direct Contact Leaders’ number one goal is to provide our communities with a faith, values and biblically based option for families to consider complimenting other youth programs, sports and extra-curricular secular activities.  Our goal is to build young men into strong and courageous leaders in our Communities, Churches and Nation; while preparing them to be impactful citizens who are prepared and equipped for meaningful relationships personally and professionally that will lead to excellence in life. We thank you for joining our family and we are excited to see your Young Man fully maximize his potential through his Trail Life Experience.
