Trail Life USA, the largest Christ-centered, boy-focused scout-type organization in the country, is proud to challenge boys to grow in confidence and leadership through amazing outdoor adventure.
Troops in Texas recently gathered for a “Night Ops Challenge,” designed to challenge boys’ character and leadership, grow their confidence and sense of independence, and test their outdoor skills through a series of scenarios and obstacles. 46 boys and 37 volunteers— including a full medical team— gathered to begin the adventure around 8:00pm. Boys were split up into eight patrols of about six boys. With the temperatures dropping to around 20 degrees Fahrenheit, the boys’ first task was to use the bearings and distances provided to create their own map to the nine challenge stations spread across 1100 remote acres.
