We are a founding charter member of Trail Life USA, an exciting character, leadership, and adventure program. We invite all boys and young men Kindergarten through college to be part of our troop.

Our objectives are simple: teach valued skills, build confidence, develop strong moral character, and have tons-of-fun within an outdoor adventure program while maintaining a Christian world-view.
