Trek is the new middle-school program from 24-7 Ministries, the youth ministry arm of Awana®. Trek takes the best of our 25 years of middle-school ministry experience—and makes it even better!
"Trek answers the questions kids are asking — literally! Over the past two years, we’ve asked hundreds of Trek students, “What’s your biggest question about God and the Bible?” Trek takes these real questions from real students and answers them from the Bible in a relevant, engaging way." - Trek Web site

- New members must complete the starting blocks to earn the Team Member Certificate, to wear the Trek shirt and to begin studying the Sprint course.
- Each Trek clubber will be assigned to a Red, Green, Yellow, or Blue team.
- Team points can be earned each week by clubbers as follows: Discovery Hour 20; Bible 20; Church 20; conduct 20; completion of units in Starting Blocks, team and individual courses, and projects 100; Pacer Challenges 100. Members of the team earning the most points each week are given shares which can be spent at the Awana® store held several times per year.
- Awards; Stripes for every 10 team, Sprint, Marathon, or Pacer Challenges. Book awards and Pacer Pins can also be earned.
- Good conduct is essential and encouraged by these two methods;
- FIVE COUNT: used to quiet the entire group. A leader counts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the Trek 24-7 club members must be quiet before 5 is reached.
- THREE COUNT: used for individual discipline. If a clubber's conduct is not acceptable they are given a "1" count (clubber loses 20 conduct points), then "2" (clubber loses all points earned that night and their share), and finally a "3" count. Clubbers are taken to the Commander or Pastor after each count. If a Treker is given "3" counts in any 4 week period, they are then taken home by two leaders who will tell the clubber parents the reason for bringing the clubber home. The clubber is welcome back next week if they plan to have acceptable conduct.
