A group of more than 75 women from around the country gained a better understanding of outdoor related activities thanks to the Trailblazer Adventure Program held recently at the American Heritage Girls National Conference for staff and volunteers near Cincinnati, Ohio.
The Trailblazer Adventure Program, a youth program of the U.S Sportsmen’s Alliance Foundation (USSAF) designed to introduce youth and families to the outdoors, and the American Heritage Girls (AHG), a Christ centered scouting organization for girls based in Cincinnati, signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding Trailblazer on May 16, 2012.
To jump start the partnership, a Trailblazer Adventure Day was held Saturday, November 10, 2012 to introduce AHG troop leaders to the excitement of outdoor activities at Cub World located in Loveland, Ohio.
Troop leaders experienced numerous outdoor related activities such as archery, target shooting and fly fishing, as well as Dutch oven cooking demonstrations from Camp Chef and hands on displays by the National Wild Turkey Federation.
“We were all given one on one instruction for every activity,” said Jennifer Gross, AHG troop leader from Louisville, Kentucky. “It was just great getting to try something new.”
