I don’t want to miss a thing!

Join other Trail Life USA Troops for “CLIMB HIGHER”  Trail Days September 9-11, 2022, Hat Creek Camp, 7145 Hat Creek Rd, Brookneal, VA.  The theme was created based on this song by Ellie Holcomb:  I Don’t Want to Miss It.  The devotions will be based on Luke 9:1-10, the story of Zaccheus.  “He entered Jericho and was passing through. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way.”

  • Big changes for this year’s event:  Archery Tag has been added as an activity for Mountain Lions, Navigators and Adventurers.  The bath house near the retreat center has been renovated and we’ve been promised hot water this year! 
  • Woodland Trail craft will return with survivor bracelets.
  • Navigators and Adventurers will participating a troop bottle rocket competition.  “Climb Higher”.
  • Like 2021 staff positions for the leadership of most activity centers will attend at NO COST.  If you are signing up to serve, be sure to select the correct ticket.
