Theme & Lessons

Forge a path with the Walker family and their friends as they attempt to settle the new frontier west of the Appalachians. Blazing their way is family patriarch, Jeremiah, a scout who searches out the best trails through the forests, over the mountains, and across the rivers. Each night at the campfire circle, you'll learn of other adventurous pioneers who blazed the trail for Jesus and discover that you can be a trailblazer for Jesus too.

Crafts

The Trailblazer Crafts will save you time and money by furnishing you with most of the materials needed to complete each craft. You will only need to supply common household items such as glue or tape. Each craft pack contains the materials to equip twelve students with one craft each. All the crafts relate to the theme and are designed to fill each craft session with a fun activity. Because some crafts contain small pieces and are not suitable for preschoolers, additional crafts are available for these young students.
