Welcome to the Adventurers
The Adventurers Program is designed to foster wisdom. It is a high-adventure, high-energy program for ninth to twelfth grade boys who want to take ownership of activities they plan and implement. The patrols are boy-lead. Adult leaders are present but play a diminishing role as the boys mature in leadership skills.
The Adventurers Program is designed for 14 to 17 year olds, and is comprised of three awards:
A Journey Trailman is at the beginning of a high adventure trail, which is designed to develop your character and leadership skills. As you hike the journey on this trail, Christ should be your guide. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Bible tells us He is a lamp for our feet and light for our path, which allows us to walk in the light He provides.
A Horizon Trailman helps younger boys with their skills, but he also seeks to help the troop succeed by assisting Freedom candidates with their servant leadership projects. You will not only be useful for the troop, you will also be learning valuable lessons that will pay off time and again when you are a man. This award symbolizes your ability to see the horizon and the final place of freedom at the end of the trail.
The Freedom Award is symbolic of both natural and spiritual freedom. As a young man who will soon turn eighteen and leave your home, the clear trail that was set for you by your parents is now an open range. You are free to set a new course and create a trail for the next chapter of your life.
