Trail Life Troop PA-0101 is a Christ-centered outdoor adventure program for young men. When our trailmen are on the trail, they camp and hike in state parks, swim, canoe and kayak in lakes and creeks, shoot the rapids, visit shooting and archery ranges, and even traverse a frozen tundra or two—and the list goes on. During these trips, the trailmen learn trail skills that will make any camping or any nature event much more enjoyable. These are skills that hopefully they will pass on to their future trailmen. Our trailmen do not only navigate the trail in the outdoors. Trail Life troop PA-0101 holds bi-weekly meetings, which may involve various subjects, such as athletic activities, (like fencing), or topics such as art, aviation, sailing, engineering, citizenship, financial management, to name a few. This is where much of the badge work is done, so that the outdoor adventures can be a time of exploration. Trail Life Troop PA-0101 is always on the move, the troop members are involved with many service projects throughout the year, and with our “not-so-typical” fundraising activities that not only helps move the troop, but are learning experiences too.
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.
