    All American Trail Life Campout
    College Station, TX

    Save the Date!

    This is being planned as a great uniquely American first "Day Trip" for Woodlands Trail youth who live within driving distance.

    This will also be a fun patriotic themed first campout opportunity for Trailmen who live further away, or for those just ready to "Hit the Trail" for their first time in a tent.

    Details to follow, but we're looking for troops with older Trailmen to show up ready to camp on Friday and Saturday and then be servant leaders under adult leader guidance who enjoy themselves, AND ALSO make sure that Nav/Adv's keep the activity stations fun and on schedule for Woodlands Trail youth to have an unforgettable Saturday away from home.

    Tentative Activities planned include: BB/Pellet Rifle shooting, Slingshot, Tomahawk toss, Tailgating games (since it's football season), plus opportunities to see and touch vintage military vehicles and equipment. This HIGHLY interactive museum will have American history programming and museum tours specifically created for our Trailmen.

    A fortunate few will likely be selected for a ride in one of the awesome vehicles. We're trying to have a military machinegun that has been converted into a fully automatic paintball gun available for demonstration.

    Youth will also be able to learn about and participate in American flag ceremonies including flag retirement ceremonies. Additionally, youth will learn about the American Legion's "POW-MIA Remembrance Empty Chair Ceremony". This allows troops whose Nav/Adv youth demonstrate this ceremony to earn the POW-MIA Streamer for their patrol flag. https://tinyurl.com/4e9jhtwc

    ATTENTION MOUNTAIN LIONS (and overachieving Foxes and Hawks): If you (1.) arrive Friday evening and camp overnight in a tent that you help qset up, (2.) eat a breakfast that you helped cook over fire in a metal pan, (3.) Hit a metal pie pan sized target ten out of ten times during a shooting sports BB or Pellet rifle session, you are eligible for "TrailMAN of Steel" recognition for this event.

    Estimated cost: $25 Day Trip only or $30 Campers (will include at least one event commemorative item) This facility also has a gift shop with additional memorabilia.

    Registration should be live by early July. Trail Life uniform shirt or complete uniform is encouraged (other official shirts highly desired as an alternative).

    This is a save the date notice! Please consider putting this on your calendars during your fall 2021 planning.

    [Remember that the Woodlands Trail youth typically don't get the opportunity to go to summer camp so a regional weekend fun day like this may be as close to summer camp as some of them get. Let's encourage our leaders and Nav/Adv's to help us make this a memorable event for them and hopefully a well attended INAUGURAL event that can be improved upon and possibly become an ANNUAL (first Saturday after 9-11/Patriots Day) event to energize fall activities.]

    More details to follow.
