Upcoming STAND – Trail Days 2024

Trail Days 2024 is now open for registrations

Are you ready to STAND?!

Join other Trail Life USA Troops for “STAND”  Trail Days September 6-8, 2024, Hat Creek Camp, 7145 Hat Creek Rd, Brookneal, VA.  We’re in a war.  Our Trailmen are in the midst of a spiritual battle. Sometimes it’s something small that throws off their day, and sometimes it’s something devastating and life changing. No matter the circumstances of the battle, your students have a choice to make: will they give in and give up or will they stand firm?  In order to stand firm against temptation, we must be wearing the proper gear. Thankfully, God doesn’t ask us to fight alone—he promises his help. When we’re equipped with God’s armor, we can fight with his strength.

  • No big changes for this year’s event.
  • Attendance will be capped at 250…so register early
  • Activities will be available on a first come first served basis.  Slots are limited so register early
  • Like 2021 staff positions for the leadership of activity centers will attend at NO COST.  If you are signing up to serve, be sure to select the correct ticket.
  • We will not be able to meet everyone’s dietary restrictions.  You are welcome to bring food items to supplement our menu.  We will be able to provide safe storage of these items for you.  A complete menu will be available well before the event.
  • Rooms in the Hammersley Center will be available for special circumstances for $120 for both nights.
