Alternative to Boy Scouts sees big gains in first year

Sep 10, 2014 by

The adventure organization for boys formed in protest after the Boy Scouts of America eased its membership policies on gays in Scouting is growing “like wildfire” in its first full year, fueled by what organizers say is a hunger for a program that will help parents raise godly men.

Last September, the “unapologetically Christian” Trail Life USA unveiled its name, logo and other defining elements at a conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

The organization, which will mark its official anniversary Jan. 1, has 450 troops with more than 14,000 members in 47 states, said Mark Hancock, Trail Life USA chief executive officer.

Nearly 300 more troops are in the chartering process, he said, and we “have averaged 345 new members each week” over the past three weeks.
