Thank you for your interest in Trail Life! Here is some helpful information on the program and what your next steps would be if you wanted to sign up your son(s).

Our mission is to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure. Trail Life is a K-12 mentoring and discipleship program that is Christ-centered and boy-focused. It focuses on age appropriate activities, outdoor skills, making friends, father/male mentor relationships, and most importantly, developing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ.

What to Expect:

  • Weekly meetings:

    • Most Wednesdays 6-7:30pm at His Providence Church (Swansea, MA). Boys will focus on activities within their rank and badge requirements.

  • Trailmen will learn how to prepare for hikes, build campfires, tie knots, set up campsites, first aid, etc.

  • In addition to weekly meetings, we host a monthly off site activity called “Hit the Trail” where the boys can use the skills they’ve learned throughout the month (usually a Saturday).

Membership Dues:

  • $99 cash or check; written to “His Providence Church”. In memo, write in “Trail Life”. (pro-rated)

  • Dues are used to pay for handbooks, purchase badges/awards, put towards outings and events, etc.

  • You may come to 3 meetings before committing. If you decide to continue, then dues can be paid then.

  • Handbooks will be provided to your son(s) after dues have been received.


  • Basic Uniform Package, includes: Shirt, Shoulder Loop, and Lanyard

  • Trailmen must have a uniform. (Allow a couple weeks after ordering.)

  • Choose the shoulder loop for your son’s age group at checkout.

    • Kindergarten/1st grade: Fox

    • 2nd/3rd grade: Hawk

    • 4th/5th grade: Mountain Lion

    • 6th-8th grade: Navigator

    • 9th-12th grade: Adventurer


  • Other packages are optional at family’s discretion.

    • Also, your son(s) will need to wear cargo pants or jeans as part of the uniform.

    • The Trail Life hat is optional, but recommended. Non-Trail Life hats are discouraged.

    • He must wear closed-toed shoes, a belt, and shirts must be tucked in.

Please  contact Chris at if you are interested in Trail Life. We will let you know when our next meeting is and you are welcome to come check it out. Many fathers are involved in our troop with their sons, and it is strongly encouraged. If you need any more information or have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.

Walk Worthy,

Trail Life Troop MA-0001
