Section 1: Priorities of the Christian Faith
o The scientific aspects of creation are important but are secondary in importance to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ as Sovereign, Creator, Redeemer, and Judge.
o The doctrines of Creator and Creation cannot ultimately be divorced from the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The following are held by the Board of Directors and Staff of The International Association for Creation to be either consistent with Scripture or implied by Scripture:
So our family was looking for a way to be involved in a creation-based adventure program. To our surprise, there were no comprehensive programs that gave us access to trusted guides, special events, and fun learning activities to help us explore God's creation first-hand. Which our family thought really surprising, being there are so many scouting programs to choose from. Children today simply don't have the same understanding of God as Creator and Savior that was once found in those who studied the created world. And we thought something should be done about it.
So we decided to help by providing a program that provides parents the tools they need to raise up each new generation of young people to experience creation, develop strong Christian relationships, be equipped to defend the faith and to walk in authentic relational Christianity. We have brought together top talent from across the nation to provide you and your family with the highest quality experiences in your hometown and as you travel. If we are competing for our youth, it must be with a message that can change their lives forever.
Through The Creation Trail, your children will learn about who they were created to be and the processes that God put in place to bring us to this point in history- their spot in His story. The truth is, that God's plan is the only one that matters, throughout all time and history.
The activities we have chosen for this program truly take children and adults on a journey to discover three things: God's original plan in the Garden, God's faithfulness throughout history, and what God has done for us on the cross. That's the mission of The Creation Trail, to point people to Jesus.
We here at The Creation Trail are dedicated to helping you provide educational opportunities and exciting, interactive programs for youth engagement to develop informed and committed youth for Christ.
Faith // The Creation Trail is a Christian-based family adventure program that emphasizes and teachers the biblical worldview through creation apologetics and hands-on learning in the context of family discipleship.
Family // The Creation Trail is supported by families at every level. Families participate in the program, connect with one another locally, and invite their church and community to join them in the adventure. Focusing on the family unit gives our participants flexibility, to adapt the program to fit their needs, and join with other like-minded families. While certain parts of the program are mandatory, a large portion of the program can be customized to fit the immediate needs of families and their associated local groups for great adventure.
Adventure // There is something special about hands-on learning, whether it be indoors or outside. Our program brings together the best of both, backed by the world's largest creation science community. This type of adventure helps build deep relationships and provide unique opportunities for leadership, fellowship, and learning.
To raise up each new generation of young people to experience creation, develop strong Christian relationships, be equipped to defend their faith, and to walk in authentic relational Christianity.
To provide educational opportunities and exciting, interactive programs for youth engagement to develop informed and committed youth for Christ.
To provide the best faith-based, family adventure program available, because we believe that every child, everywhere, should be able to experience God's creation first-hand!
The Creation Trail was born to help families experience God's creation first-hand through the many faith-affirming resources in local communities across America. Rather than an "information dump," we desire to make hands-on learning available at aquariums, museums, national parks, and zoos that help equip you to defend your faith and experience creation through the truth of God's Word.
Do you wonder how you can best prepare your kids to face the onslaught of the secular evolutionary spirit of the age? Is it your goal and dream to see your kids stand strong for Jesus into their young adulthood and even see your grand kids reach their own generation for Christ? Whether this something comfortable for you or not, your kids need a big dose of the biblical worldview to accomplish this.
The world has long understood the power of science to give them a foundation for their worldview. They have no trouble throwing assumptions and theories at us to support their godless positions. All with "science" as their irresistible authority. At the same time, creation is silently shouting its true Creator’s praise. There is nothing in factual science for Christians to fear.
But, is it easy for you to find materials, make time, and be a confident teacher in this vital arena?
That’s where The Creation Trail has your back! We make learning about creation rewarding and fun through our global network of biblical worldview learning centers and certified speakers, hands-on learning activities, interactive events, and innovative technology.
We can help you teach science in the way that best suits your family—and the best way to teach your kids is while they are having fun!
Our aim is to provide young people and families with easy access to tools that help them receive biblical worldview training by utilizing the exhibits at over 300 museums, 120 aquariums, 2,400 zoological parks, and various National Parks — wherever they are located.
