Delta Life Options for Catholics

The National Catholic Committee of Trail Life USA is working to provide robustly Catholic options within the Delta Life program that Trail Life USA offers to troops that want a "spiritual overlay" to their rugged outdoor adventures. We anticipate tailoring the existing "Manhood Journey" option to increase the appeal of that program for middle school aged Catholics who are "Navigator" Trailmen.

Meanwhile, we are pleased to announce the current availability of a robustly Catholic option within the "Band of Brothers" program for high school aged Catholics who are "Adventurer" Trailmen. The National Catholic Committee has collaborated with the Augustine Institute and Lighthouse Catholic Media to make available the "Y Disciple" program to Catholics participating in Trail Life.

For those familiar with the That Man Is You program, the Y Disciple program might strike you as remarkably akin, albeit aimed at teenage boys rather than adult men, to that effort of Paradisus Dei. Y Disciple encourages a patrol-sized group of Catholic boys to grow in their faith and to support one another fraternally amidst the shared challenges of remaining faithful in face of secularist modernity.

With the support of the Augustine Institute and Lighthouse Media, as well as a generous benefactor, this program is being made available at no cost to the Catholic boys, troops, or chartering organizations who wish to utilize it.

Please contact the Committee directly to obtain access information. Once you have obtained your User ID and password from the Committee, you may click here to access the Y Disciple option within the "Band of Brothers" program.
