Pathfinders is a world wide organisation sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is designed for children aged 10 – 15 years. The objectives of Pathfinders is to teach children life skills and help them build a relationship with God and this club accepts all children who promise to abide by the Pathfinder Pledge and Pathfinder Law (see below).
The Pathfinder Club is run by volunteers who have a wide range of skills, abilities and interests. Usually, they are former Pathfinders themselves and now dedicated to passing on the skills they have learnt to the next generation of young people.
The Pathfinders programme encourages a wide range of activities from community outreach projects to attending international camps across the world. The Pathfinders programme has six curriculums levels, which are age-specific and designed to challenge children, including over 300 specialised, skill-development badges, involving household arts, outdoor industries, community work, health, science, arts and crafts, nature, recreation and vocational development.
