About Pathfinders

Pathfinders includes three phases of ministry:  junior, teen, and leadership training for young people grades 5-10.  Regular club activities include progressive class work, honors; camping; nature, and recreational activities; marching and drilling; field trips; fund-raising projects; community service; and evangelistic outreach.  Each meeting begins with a short ceremony in which youth sing the Pathfinder song and recite the Pathfinder pledge and law.

Membership in Pathfinders is not restricted to Adventist youth.  There are 26 clubs in Illinois with over 400 Pathfinders and staff.

Pathfinder Leadership

Each September there is a leadership training convention for all Pathfinder leaders and staff. It is important to teach leadership skills and share plans for the new Pathfinder year.
