The Pathfinder Club is a worldwide program organized and directed by the Youth Department of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It offers a wide range of learning experiences for young people 10 to 15 years of age (and older) and is operated by the international Seventh-day Adventist church under the direction and control of the local conference youth director. There are pathfinders all over the world.
Pathfinder clubs are sponsored by a local Seventh-day Adventist Church or school and meet on a regular basis – often weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
Annually, each conference will hold a large event known as a camporee where Pathfinders from throughout a local conference will come together to participate in events, activities, competitions, and religious meetings.
Every so often a camporee is held during which clubs from a large area such as North American or South Pacific divisions come together and enjoy fellowship and do activities together.
Activities include community service, camping, crafts, classwork, marching, Bible study, Seventh-day Adventist Church history, and leadership training. Staff to student ratio is low, which the organization stresses as an important learning benefit for participants. Participants are children and teenagers aged 10–15, progressing through different ranks called class levels each year.
Joe and Randa Kennon lead the Gulfhaven Pathfinders in our church. Let’s support their ministry by bringing our children to church and let them grow in a Christian environment.
