The Pathfinder club provides a Christ-centered spiritual-recreational program designed for junior and teens which appeals to this age group because its program features activities that meet their needs and interests. They will earn honors much like the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts merit badges. It is filled with action, adventure, challenge and group activities while providing opportunities for the development of new attitudes and skills that produce personal growth, team spirit, and a sense of loyalty and respect for God, His creation and His church.


Pathfinders are a worldwide organization of young people sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, though young people of any religious persuasion, or none at all, are welcome and encouraged to join.

Pathfinders offer a wide range of activities including, but not limited to:

  • Camping /Survival Skills

  • Grade appropriate leadership training.

  • Activities promoting community pride & involvement through outreach activities such as helping in downtown soup kitchens, collecting food for the disadvantaged, cleaning & maintaining city and county parks, visiting and encouraging the elderly, and MANY more.

  • Interactive training in a variety of recreational, artistic, nature, conservation, vocational, and outreach areas, with awards (honors) given for successful completion of the interactive training modules.
