With spring just around the corner, the Trailblazer Adventure Program has begun preparations for what is to be the most successful season to date, with more than 150 events expected to take place between now and the fall season.
Beginning in 2001 with a single event held near Atlanta, Georgia, the program has grown to over 700 events held in 48 different states across the country. Last year alone, the Trailblazer Adventure Program reached more than 225,000 youth and their families, making the programs total reach to over 1.5 million participants.
Partnering with different youth serving agencies such as the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts, YMCA and most recently the American Heritage Girls, Trailblazer serves as an introductory program for youth and their families to experience our hunting heritage through one day events held coast to coast. Events aim to place a bow, fishing pole, and firearm in the hands of all participants, as well as introduce them to different conservation methods.
In 2013, the Trailblazer program is once again partnering with Cabela’s to host events at store locations across the nation. Trailblazer participants will be given the opportunity to attend a Trailblazer Adventure Day at Cabela’s stores nationwide on June 8th and October 5th.
The Trailblazer Program will also be jumpstarting its recent partnership with the American Heritage Girls, with nine events scheduled for the season thus far.
“The Trailblazer Adventure Program is the perfect way to get your kids outside and to keep our hunting heritage alive,” said Frank Price, Trailblazer Education Director. “This program is the most successful of its kind, and wouldn’t be possible without the help from its generous sponsors and the hard work of our great volunteers and partners.”
The Trailblazer Adventure Program is funded in part from generous donors from across the country, and is titled sponsored by the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund.
“These funds allow us to continue to reach hundreds of thousands of youth and families each year and also expand the program into new and different areas,” said Bud Pidgeon, USSA President and CEO. “We cannot thank the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund enough for their generosity.”
