Trailblazer Adventure Program Teams Up with AHG

As Spring rolls in, so does the start of the Trailblazer Adventure Program’s season and the beginning of a partnership to introduce young women to outdoor sports and our hunting heritage.

Among the first programs held this Trailblazer season were those of American Heritage Girls Troop 0044 from Batesburg, SC and Troop 0055 from Nashville, TN.  In total, over 200 AHG participants and families were able to experience firsthand the basics of America’s long standing hunting and conservation traditions.

Participants from Nashville and Batesburg gathered to participate in a day specifically aimed to place a bow, fishing pole and BB gun in the hands of all involved. Participants at the Nashville event were also introduced to the long time tradition of trapping, with a local trapper present with pelts and trapping demonstrations. Participants were excited with the day’s events.

Compassion International – Change the Story, Apr. 4 – 7

Compassion International is one of AHG’s partner organizations, and many Troops across the country sponsor a child through Compassion.

What if you could see poverty firsthand? What if, despite age, health or finances, others could experience God’s heart for the poor?

Now you can.

Change the Story will bring you as close to another country and culture as you can get without a passport. This interactive, immersive display allows you to step into the life of a child who has suffered under the crippling weight of poverty.

But the journey does not end there.

In the span of less than 30 minutes, you will travel with that child from hardship to hope. And in the midst of hope, you will see that child’s story transformed through the support of Compassion and the child’s life-giving relationship with a sponsor.

Change the Story is an eye-opening experience that challenges your views of poverty, transforms your understanding of the world, and moves you to be the change for a child who lives in extreme poverty!

Now you can experience the reality of children living in poverty at Change the Story, Compassion’s new, interactive traveling display. The sights and sounds of a poor, developing-world community will come alive as you journey with a child from hardship to hope. Space is limited – make your reservation to attend this eye-opening, life-changing display now.
