Welcome to Trail Life USA Troop NC-0834

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.




“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.




Psalm 8:3-4:   When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?




May the power of the Father, the wisdom of the Son, and the love of the Holy Spirit, guide us to walk worthy and live with integrity until we meet again.

"I enjoy Trail Life because we learn skills that will help us later in life such as hunter safety training, as well as going on fun, educational trips such as the trip we took to the USS Yorktown. The trip to the battleship gave me insight into the military and what it’s done for our country."


- Vann D.

“All of the skills we learn and when we help out go toward our Freedom Award, which is the highest award we can get.  It shows that we’ve learned how to be responsible and about freedom and other skills and stuff.” 


- Joshua R., 14, TLUSA Second Officer

“Our son has been in Trail Life now for 3 years.  It has been a great way for him to meet boys his age, learn about outdoor activities and learn more about God."


- Linda C.

“I’ve learned so much from being in Trail Life.  It’s taught me how to keep track of all my stuff and deal with responsibility and learn to do it on your own.  We are responsible for everything from planning activities for the older boys to teaching the younger boys skills such as how to tie a knot and set up a tent.”


- Parker V., 17, TLUSA First Officer
